Irelynn was born on Tuesday, January 3rd at 11:08am. She weighed 7 pounds and 8 ounces (a great combo of numbers since Eric's lucky number is 7 and mine is 8). Also, Irelynn was born on 1/3. Jeremy was born on 8/3. There is always something crazy with numbers. She was 19 1/2 inches and was born amist some drama via emergency c-section, but most importantly, she was born ALIVE.
It's so funny how things happened. Towards the end, things got very dicey and I am so grateful that I had a doctor who listened to me and took me seriously, which enevitably led to saving her life. Irelynn was dangerously close to suffering the same fate as Savannah. If it weren't for Savannah, I wouldn't be so educated on stillbirth, cord accidents, fetal monitoring, or fetal distress movements. Savannah helped save her sister's life. She served another amazing purpose with her brief life and I know she is smiling down upon Irelynn, and happy to finally be a big sister!
Welcome to the World, sweet Baby Girl. We waited sooooooo long to meet you and you were well worth the wait.
To anyone else struggling with Infertility, don't ever give up hope and remain strong in your faith. It is the only thing that got us through the pregnancy. That and we have a very special little girl named Savannah who kept vigilant watch over us from her seat next to Jesus in Heaven.
