It's a girl! Born at 10:40. 5 pounds 11.5 ounces! My little niece!

She is still without a name and going to be spending the first week or so in intensive care but her oxygen levels are good. She was not 4 weeks but 6 weeks early. She is so beautiful. I love her already!

Another Update:

When my mom called to tell me that my sister had gone into labour I thought she was 6 weeks early but my mom insisted that she was 4 weeks early. Well it turns out I was correct and this wee one was indeed 6 weeks early. She is having problems breathing and had to be airlifted to Victoria. Please keep her in your prayers. She doesn't have a name yet but God will know who you are talking about!


Another Update

Little Girl (the name I have given her for now) arrived by helicopter at the hospital. She was put in isolation in the pediatric ICU and given and given a nurse that looks after her exclusively. She is doing much better and is stable. She still does not have a name! Keep praying for this wee one. (She is not even 13 inches!)

Thank you also for your kind words of encouragement. I do appreciate it and it does help knowing someone else understands what you're saying.

She is a good size for being 6 weeks early. Mine 3rd daughter Alexandria (NUDGE) was 4 weeks earley and was 6 pounds even. She will be in my prayers, she is a doll.

Oh Barb! What a beautiful little pumpkinhead she is!
Will definitely keep your family (and the baby) in our prayers.

I'm a twin, and was born 2 months early. We each weighed something like 2 1/2 lbs. This was in the early 70's when they didn't have neonatal units and advanced medical technology. Take heart and believe in the doctors and God.. I'm sure she will be just fine! :)
