Helllllooooo Baaabyyyy!!

Caitlin went to the hospital on Monday night because she had some bleeding. Mommy left work and met her at the hospital. They were going to send her home and mommy was going to go back to work. The doctor came in and said, "umm, we don't want you pregnant anymore." Mommy asked her why and she said that Caitlin's blood work had come back and her white count was extremely high, so, she had an infection somewhere and they didn't want her pregnant anymore. The doctor said they were going to admit her and induce. They got Caitlin settled in her room and let her take a shower. When she got out of the shower they hooked her up to the toco and discovered she was suddenly in active labor. Her contractions were coming anywhere from 1.5-5 min apart and were lasting 60-120 seconds. She was only in labor for about 8 hours. She pushed for almost 3 though. Devin Alexander entered the world at 1134am, weighing in at 8lbs 9oz and 20 3/4 inches long.
