Kylie Rae Vorkink

Kylie Rae Vorkink made her appearance April 21, 2010 at 2:13 am.  She was 8 lbs. 2 oz. and 20 1/2 in.  She has adorable black hair and is just too cute!

And here is her birth story:
My water broke at 4:50 pm on the 20th and Austin and I made it to the hospital about 6:20 pm.  I was still at 3 centimeters when they checked me in and I wasn't having very regular contractions so they put me on pitocin to speed up the process.  While Austin and I played Phase 10 the contractions started to pick up and after feeling a few of them I got my epidural.  At this point I was at 4.5 centimeters.  The nurse came back to check on me after about an hour or hour and a half and said I was fully dilated!!!  They had me wait about an hour before pushing so the baby's head would come down a bit more.  Then the pushing began...  After pushing through 5 and 1/2 contractions little Kylie joined us!

Here is a link to the picture that the hospital photographer took:

False Labor.... I hate it!

Starting around 5:00 pm yesterday I started having contractions every 7 minutes!!  This lasted until about midnight when I went to sleep thinking that I would be woken up early in the morning by contractions and get to go to the hopsital.  No such luck!  Even though I MADE Austin accompany me on 3 walks yesterday nothing happened....  :(  Anyways, hopefully this means she will be coming soon!  I am still having some contractions today but they don't seem to be very regular like they were yesterday.  I'll keep my fingers crossed though!

The Nursery

The nursery is ready and waiting for little Kylie to come!  While I was in Death Valley with my family back in February, Austin surprised me by painting the nursery lime green so I wouldn't have to do any of the work. What a husband!  Then my parents came up a few weeks ago to help finish the nursery.  Danelle, my mom and I made the bumper pads, the valences and the dust ruffle.  Heather is making a patch work quilt for the blanket and should be done by the time Kylie arrives.  Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of the nursery!  She could be here any day now!!!!  haha  Hopefully sooner rather than later!
