Rylee Erin Ma

Born: May 12, 2007 at 12:03pm
Weight: 5 lb. 5.7 oz.
Length: 19 3/4 inches

So Rylee a/k/a Sprout decided to come four and a half weeks early! After going to the hospital at midnight last night to confirm that Diane’s water had indeed broken (and had actually started leaking on Wednesday), Diane was given drugs around 2am to start the dilation process.

When I got back to the hospital around 9am this morning, Diane was about 4cm dilated and started on pitocin to induce labor. By 11:15am or thereabouts (I lost track of the time), Diane was was confirmed 6cm dilated and it just started snowballing from there. Next thing I knew hair could be seen, Diane started pushing, and minutes after that, Rylee had joined the world. It was incredible.

Both sets of grandparents were visiting all day.ย More details in the days ahead, but for now I’m going to bed.
