Tiffany awoke this morning at 2am with strong contractions. By 7am we were on our way to Portland Providence. By 8am Tiff was admitted to the hospital with stronger, more consistent contractions.

After 32 minutes of "pushing" Evangeline Erickson burst into the world at 11:20am, arm reaching out and pressed against her head. Weighing in at 7 pounds, 12 ounces, she is a strong, beautiful little girl.

Tiffany is doing very well, despite needing some well-earned respite. Pictures and more information to follow.

Thanks for your prayers.

[False] Alarm

We rushed to this hospital this afternoon under the suspicion that Tiff's water had broken. It turns out that it hasn't, but she is definitely getting close to labor. Tonight? Tomorrow? We'll soon find out.

Lucky for us, the hospital provided Tiff with a new wardrobe to help her past the time during our few hours in the hospital.

Ready for Labor (almost)

Is she coming?

11/21/2012- 38 week appt with Dr. Grant we found out Tiffany is:
  • 1cm dilated
  • 30% Effaced
  • -3 Station

This doesn't mean Evangeline is coming tonight, but it does mean she is getting ready.  Check back here on the day Tiffany goes into labor, this will be the place where we keep everyone updated.
