Welcome Baby Nellie
Nellie Jane Raisor joined our family on Tuesday September 1st a little after 6pm. So Tuesday morning we went in at 3am (yeah I know but it was the only time they had left) It actually turned out to be a good thing we were scheduled that early because almost every other induction scheduled after us got bumped. So we got on Pitocin at 4:30 or so and after a long day of labor she was born at 6:07pm. So the reason my doctor decided to induce me 2 weeks early was so I wouldn't have another 9 pound baby... well it didn't work Nellie was 9 pounds 3 ounces and 21 inches long. Yeah and all that was 2 weeks early. I can't even imagine what she would have been if we had waited till 40 weeks. I could have had an 11 pounder on my hands. Yikes! Thats a scary thought. Thank goodness for my wonderful doctor. Everything went really well at the hospital the nurses were amazing and Nellie was so perfect and healthy that we only had to stay 24 hours.
