Kessalyn's Coming! (Part 1)

The Mozy for Mac team went out to lunch and a movie this afternoon to celebrate a recent milestone we reached. I hadn't seen Star Trek yet, so we went to the American Fork theaters and saw it as a team. (Fantastic movie, by the way. Worth the hype it's been getting.) We were planning on going up to my cousin's wedding dinner tonight up in Salt Lake, so the plan was that Tianna would pick me up sometime this afternoon and then we'd head up.

Tianna had a midwife appointment at 1:15 this afternoon, and when the movie got out at 3:15 or so, she was near my work so she offered to just come pick me up right then. I was a bit surprised that she was still in the area, since her appointments don't usually go nearly that long.

When I got in the car, Tianna said "So, we're having a baby tonight." Her due date was June 20, but at the midwife appointment, they noticed that her belly has measured the same for the last three visits, so they decided to investigate further. An ultrasound revealed that the amniotic fluid was low and that the placenta is starting to calcify. (Basically, it's getting ready to shut down, like they see in women that are a week overdue.) The baby is fine right now, but they'd rather deliver the baby while the placenta is still delivering nutrients so they decided to induce her tonight

We drove home and packed up a few things, made a few phone calls, etc., and arrived at the American Fork hospital around 6:30pm. Since this was an unexpected turn of events, they were still setting up our room when we arrived. They got us all set up, gave her a small pill to help her begin to dilate, and now we're just hanging out. They're hoping to give her just enough medication to get the body to start labor on its own, and then they'll pull her off and she'll just do her thing.

So yeah. An unexpected turn of events, but we're both doing well, and we're excited to finally meet our little Kessalyn.

I'll post updates as things happen.
