Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!

On Wednesday, May 26, 2010, we welcomed Emily Katherine Corbitt to the world.  She weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz. and was 20 inches long.  She is absolutely perfect!!!  We are headed home today so hopefully I will be able to get to blogging soon.  For now, here are some pictures of sweet Emily Kate!

36 weeks and a Baby Shower

On Wednesday I was 36 weeks and I had my check-up. My doctor decided that he would not check to see if I was dilated because I am currently taking an antibiotic for possibly having strep. Apparently he had planned on testing me for Group B strep, but the antibiotic would mess up the culture. He said he would go ahead and do all of that next week. I was a little disappointed because I have convinced myself that I am already dilated :). Thomas and I along with my doctor have discussed several times the possibility of a c-section. I had one with Edward and based on the events during my labor experience with him, my doctor feels that I do not have the bone structure to deliver a baby. Yesterday, we went ahead and scheduled a c-section for May 26. I am excited, nervous, anxious, etc., etc.! Part of me hopes that Emily Kate comes early so that I can try to have her on my own! If not, it's only 20 more days until we meet our little girl. We are so excited and I have been very busy trying to make sure I have all that I need and that the room is ready!

On Sunday, some wonderful friends threw me a great baby shower! I have been so nervous this whole pregnancy because I have absolutely nothing for a little girl! I received some wonderful gifts and can't wait to use all my cute clothes, blankets, etc.! I wish I had some great pictures to post, but I don't. Sorry! I will be sure to keep everyone updated in the coming weeks!
