Baby Kayla is here! Born on September 9, 2016
26 Sep 2016
I haven’t written anything here for a while now and there’s a good reason for it…I had the baby! She was born on Friday 9/9 at the Mary Birch hospital here in San Diego. Her name is Kayla and she’s as healthy and beautiful as can be. I couldn’t be happier!
Kayla made a big and quite unexpected entrance into this world, because she wasn’t due until the end of the month. I’d been having painful cramps for a couple of days, but when I went to see my doctor that Wednesday before she was born and he had told me that I was only 2 cm dilated and it could still take another week or two. However, when I went to bed that Thursday night, the cramps were worse than before and came in intervals. I had no idea they were actual contractions until my water broke a little before midnight. My husband, toddler and I rushed to the hospital and 6 hours later she was born.
She’s was born two and a half weeks before her due date, but fortunately she had no health issues and she was not underweight: in fact, she was 5 lb, 12 oz. (about 2608 grams) at birth and was gaining weight like crazy while we were in the hospital. Normally newborns lose some weight the days after birth, but not this baby!
She’s almost 3 weeks old now and she’s doing great. Her big brother Mason is adjusting very well too. He’s been very happy with her arrival and couldn’t be more proud. He can’t stop giving her kisses, touching her hair and talking about how tiny and cute his baby sister is. 🙂
Fun facts: Kayla was born on September 9 and I was born on August 9. Also, my husband’s birthday is in June and our toddler’s is in July. We’ll be celebrating birthdays all Summer from now on! Hihi!
