Arrival of Baby Ellen

I am now a mother of our third child. She came earlier than I expected. I went in last Thursday for my 39 week check up and they found that there was very low fluid and that she had an elevated heart rate. The doctor decided induction was the best way to go. So that evening my husband and I went to the hospital and started the induction process at about 9 p.m. Needless to say it was a very long night because although the doctor wanted me to be induced right away she did not want me to deliver in the middle of the night. As it turned out baby Ellen was born Friday morning at 8:44 a.m. Everything went well and baby Ellen was born healthy and just fine. Pictures will follow soon.
