Landry Kate Smith

Hello!

I thought I better blog about this or I was going to get way behind. As you can see, Landry came into this world the day before her due date. I had a doctors appointment on Tuesday and went in to find out my doctor was in an emergency C-section, so I would be seeing another doctor. It turned out to be for the best, because this is my favorite doctor in her practice. After I did all the normal stuff I had been doing from week to week her assistant came back in to inform me that I needed to roll over on my side because I was having high blood pressure. I laid on my side for a bit, then the doctor came in to retest me and I still had high blood pressure. They said that this was something they didn't like to mess with and that we needed to talk about inducing me the next day. I was shocked, I had no idea. Tim and I discussed it, and it turned out that Wednesday was a good day to go ahead and do this. I was admitted Tuesday evening, and then Wednesday morning we got the ball rolling. A short 15 hours later, Landry made her appearance. It was a long day to say the least.
