Evelynn Gina-Rae Lamb
After a long journey of 42.2 weeks Evelynn (Evie) Gina-Rae Lamb was born on Monday, December 15th, 2008 at 12:21 p.m. She weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs 4 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long.
Kristel suspected she was in the beginning stages of labor early friday morning, when her contractions came at a fairly regular interval but friday came and went then saturday passed as well but there was still no baby and kirstel wasn't showing many signs of progress. Then Sunday at 6 p.m. we were sure evelynn was well on her way as kristel's contractions became very strong and lasting for well over 45 seconds. The contractions continued to grow stronger as we started into our third night of anxious sleeplessness. By 1 a.m. sunday morning our midwife had shown up and advised we go to the hospital as Kristel was by now completely exhausted and only dialated to 2 cm. We quickly rushed her to the hospital where she was given an epideral and got some very much needed sleep. Finally after well over the average 12 hour labor Evelynn was born.
Kristel is recovering quickly and Evelynn has just been a sweetheart. We are looking forward for her to meet you all!
