Well, the SIL's pregnancy is finally over. She went into preterm again on Thursday after taking castor oil on Wednesday (last). She pretty much spent the entire weekend in the hospital because her doctor wouldn't do anything to get her labor going. Well, she was discharged on Sunday. Then on Tuesday, her water broke at 0600. I took her to the hospital and she had maybe 5 contractions until 2 pm. She was then given Pit and she immediately went into active labor. Her baby was born at 5:39 pm. A little girl weighing 6.5 lbs, 20 inches long. Just the sweetest little thing since I had my son nearly two years ago. According to the Ballot test, the child was born between 34 and 35 weeks gestation. Her doctor said it was a blessing that they held off for those 4 days. I am very glad too. Because this child makes me nervous even though she is breathing on her own and breastfeeding well.
I am so glad this ordeal with my SIL is over. I didn't know what a stress it was to me until after it was over. I can also tell you that if my SIL doesn't spoil this child, I know I will.
. I was there for the birth and the second one to hold her. This poor kid...She only has her mom and no dad, and no extended family besides us. Her other two has a buttload of family here in town. I hate to say it, though I enjoy her other two, I just never developed a great attachment to them and I already have with this one.
