Kylee Anne

Kylee Anne was born on Saturday, May 22nd 2010 at 4:12 pm. She was 7 lb 6 oz and 20 in long.

The story...
Thursday night I had a massive headache... it was still there on Friday morning. So at noon I finally went to the doctor to see if I was ok because we were watching my blood pressure because of preclampsia. I really was planning on going to Salt Lake with my mom, but that never happened. Instead I was sent home to get my stuff & to at the hospital in an hour. So I drove myself to the hospital & Gavin met my there from work.

I was induced on Friday at 2:30 pm. I basically "hung out" all evening. I finally started having contractions around 10:00 pm. So they gave me some pain meds & sleeping pills and put me to bed. My doctor came in at 4:00 am and said I was only a 2 & broke my water. By 8:00 am I was a 4 and in pain! I had to wait an hour for my epidural because they were so busy. {That was the worst part!} at 12:30, I was a 10! The had me wait an hour to start pushing.... but it was really almost 2 hours. I started pushing at 2:00 & Kylee arrived at 4:12 pm. I pretty much zoned out for a lot of it & could not tell you much of the details. The cord was wrapped around her neck twice & she was posterior {face up instead of face down}.

Grandma & Grandpa Munns were out in the hall waiting for her arrival & were the first visitors to great her. After we were moved up to the Mother/Baby unit, Jamie & Tyson came to visit as well as Grandma & Grandpa Welling & Great-Grandma Welling.

We spent all day Sunday in the hospital, with visits from Uncle Brady & Aunt Erika, Uncle Casey, Uncle Ryan, & Uncle Jordan and Grandma & Grandpa Munns. We were released on Monday and sent home!

When she was 4 days old, Kylee had high biliruben levels. She was put in a bilibed with the bright blue lights to treat her jaundice.
