I hope you're not upset at me for making this thread instead of you doing it and sharing the awesome news, but I'm SO happy for you and I couldn't wait, Barb!

Her little Pippi arrived early! She was scheduled to have a c/s on Monday, but according to her husband on facebook, she decided to make her grand entrance early!

I don't know any other details other than her name: Sydney Noelle (which I absolutely adore, btw), but I'm sure once she's back home and recovering she'll share her story and show us pics!

I think I speak on behalf of all of us that we are SO incredibly happy for you, Barb and family! Hope all is well with you and baby!

I don't have her husband on mine either, but I saw an update in my email after I had responded to one of her status updates that said, "congrats, hope baby and mommy are doing well" I was SO confused haha, so I quickly went to her page and searched around and found all these congrats and then found that her husband had updated something about the new baby after she had written something.

Oh my, Moms!!! I go to a doctor's appointment on Friday a.m. and by Friday p.m, I am holding Pippi ...er, SYDNEY (lol) in my arms!

I did ask Nate to post something under my facebook account "so all my JM cyber-friends can see the announcement", but he was logging in with an incorrect username. No fear, I see that the announcement made it out to my adoring fans (I kid, I kid).

And Steph, I thank you for posting this update on JM so quickly! I am home today, logging in here, and I see this breaking news --- I'm happy that the good news got out so quickly by you cyber-aunties

I will be happy to post a detailed birth story sometime really soon. Basically, Thursday night's scare turned into her telling us "it's time!" I had my twice-weekly perinatologist appointment on Friday morning at 8:30. He said "aaaahhhh, no wonder you haven't been feeling as much movement yesterday; you are low on amniotic fluid and she's telling us it's time to come out. When are you supposed to deliver?"

I said "Monday."

Doctor said "Nope. Today. I'm checking you into L&D and ..." and and this point, my heart is about to burst with excitement because I am SO GLAD he didn't want to wait until Monday's scheduled C-section and decided my OB needs to do it that very afternoon.

Long story short --- Sydney Noelle Powell arrived wonderfully screaming and beautifully crying via C-section at 4:35 p.m. CST and 8lbs., 1 oz., 20' long (not the 9lbs 8 ozs the perinatologist said it was going to be ...).

And I am feeling content

I'm off to catch up on any JM posts, some emails, and any additional facebook happenings I may have missed in the past 4 days (feels like 4 weeks!) ...

Here is one of my favorite pictures of Sydney and me
