Ava Jade Sandhu Has Arrived!

Ava decided to make an appearance...FINALLY!
Amanda was due on December 16th, and Ava decided to arrive on December 22, 2008, at 1:10AM. She weighed in at 7lbs. 2oz., and she was 20.5 inches long. Everyone - including the doctor and the sonograms - thought that Ava was going to be an 8.5-9lb. baby. She shocked us all!

Jeremy and I went up to the hospital on Sunday night and spent 6 hours there waiting for her to arrive. NOTHING compared to the nearly 24 hours that Ava's mom & dad waited! I went back up to the hospital today after my doctor's appt. which was right across the street. (More on this in a second.) I just had to hold her. Ava is so precious!!! I can't wait to do things with her, Amanda, Jilian, and me! They definitely got the best Christmas present ever!
Amanda, Ameet, & Ava are all fantastic!

My appt. went well today. This was just a check-up, no sono. I am 35weeks, 2 days. I am still at 7-8 lbs. weight gain. I saw another doctor in the office today who happens to be pregnant, and she says to me, "So what's your secret to such little weight gain?" THERE IS NO SECRET! I EAT LIKE A HORSE, OR MORE LIKE A COW...JUST CALL IT LUCK! That's what I wanted to tell her, but I just smiled and said, "I don't know."
My stomach is measuring perfectly, and Jilian's heart rate was 147. All is good there! I go back next week, and every week until I deliver. My next - and final - sono is on January 5th.

Congratulations to the Sandhu's!
Enjoy the pictures below!
