I am thinking for 37 weeks, she is long!

Congrats to you and your family!  She’s a good size for a 37 week baby but if memory serves, the gestational diabetes may have something to do with that.  I’m just glad everyone’s healthy and doing well.

@Sea DogVikki asked for the name of the program you are using for tye dog pictures and I'm lazy and don't feel like scrolling back 50 pages or more.

 

Midjourney is a AI based art program through Discord. You will need to create an discord account. There are plenty of YouTube tutorial videos if you search Midjourney. Here is link to the basic information.

https://midjourney.gitbook.io/docs/

 

Keep in mind the first few images are free but if you want to create more there are several subscription rates. I pay $10/month but my limit goes pretty quickly by the time you udate and make versions.

 

It's fun and once you get the hand of it you can create some amazing images. I think she will like it. Any questions she can email me.

 

Hope you are having a blast. Drink a cocktail for me.

 

Cheers!

Greg

Not TMI at all.  I am thankful to hear all ended well with them.  Last night we were told the reason for induction was preeclampsia.  I googled what it was all about and quickly learned I don't need to know it all.  The little I learned was concerning to me.  All is ending well so far.

I warned pics would come.  This is just a tease.  I will probably start flooding the board tomorrow when she is cleaned up.

She is beautiful. Glad they got her out of there as  preeclampsia is pretty dangerous stuff. Linda had posteclampsia after Jonathan was born and almost died. Scary.

 

So happy for mom and dad and the rest of your family.

That is abdolutely true. Considering how complicated the process is, it is amzing that it goes right as often as it does. I don"t think I'll ever forget how I felt when in residency I delivered my first baby.... even though it was a slippery bloody mess.😊😇

I was just going to ask that too!

I LOVE sticky toffee pudding. HAL (Cuba cruise) had it in their dining room and I RAVED about it so much to the waiter that they brought it for us every time we were in the mdr after that. I was literally killed with it. I got a little sick of it in the end 🤣but I truly very much appreciated that they gave it this much thought.

Bermuda cafes have it. And I saw a kit from Williams Sonoma (at local mall) once and brought it home....disaster 🤪but that was my fault not the kit's.

I love it too.I worked in Greenwich Village many years ago and saw it on a menu one day and tried it .Every time I returned to that restaurant I ordered it.

Good instincts Debbie.   She was one that was supposed to eat one but at the time she was at her 27th week appointment.   They decided to induce.  They just now gave her an epidural to help with the pain.  Please all, send those prayers for my baby to safely have her baby!

Prayers and happy thoughts sent your way.   Excited to hear some great news soon🥰

So having some fun last night with more AI Art. Doing some more Sea Dogs. This one is a Cavalier King Charles one. Not sure if I want to use this one?

I may just this one for one of my avatars or maybe alternate. Thoughts?

Busy weekend and days ahead.  We have our two granddaughters for the weekend (along with the dog) while DD & SIL go to a wedding in Portland ME.  All while trying to pack and get ready for our road trip to Disney with two grandsons.  We leave Monday for PA, overnight at their house and then hit the road to FL Tuesday morning.  Some days and weeks it seems like there’s nothing going on and then BAM, everything happens at once!  

Busy weekend and days ahead, with all good things happening, Deb! Spending time with the grandchildren while also making memories...it doesn't get better than this.  Enjoy!🥰

Finnley is here!  She is 7lb 10oz.  21 inches long.  Both are healthy!  Thanks for the prayers!

Congratulations to you and Sharon on the birth of your newest member of the family, baby Finnley!  So glad all went well with your daughter and her delivery.  Babies are such a blessing!

Tag said I bought Jalapeno Peppers, but you know how some people move the name tags in those trays of vegetables when you buy them, never really know what you are getting.

 

Picked corn from our garden to freeze into bags this afternoon.

Very nice.  I'll stop by for some corn on my way to John's place for jalepeno poppers and to see new baby and sweet Kenzie.   I can bring some eggplant if you like. 😁

My daughter’s blood pressure zoomed with her first one and she developed preeclampsia. They admitted her but couldn’t get the bp down. 
They were trying to keep the baby in for two more weeks. 
Lisa went into a coma and her organs started failing. 
They rushed her into the operating room to do an emergency C section. 
They told us the prognosis was bleak and did we want to watch the C section. 
We were put in a room with a big window and could see Lisa draped and her husband standing there holding her hand. 
We couldn’t see her face because there was a drape between her chest and head. 
The incision had already been made and we could see the inside of her body at an angle. 
Poor Jon was white as a sheep, and Dick and I were holding each other up. 
The obstetrician lifted a tiny purple plastic looking doll out and laid it on a metal table right in front of the window. 
Two miracles happened. 
The little plastic doll opened its mouth and mewed like a kitten. Its color lightened up and she opened her eyes and looked up at the nurse. 
The biggest miracle happened a few minutes later when Lisa woke up. 
I hope this wasn’t too much TMI, but modern medicine and dedicated hospital staff work miracles every day. 
I hope and pray your daughter has her own miracle and they both come through like champions! 
Edited to say Congratulations! 
A healthy daughter and healthy baby are indeed a miracle!

No.  Not TMI at all.  Thank you for sharing your daughter’s experience... I’m happy for the outcome.  And you got to witness the C-Section.  That in itself was an amazing experience.

Congratulations!  Finley is a beautiful baby.  So glad that mother is doing well and baby is healthy.

Indeed.  Childbirth is always a miracle.  It is why DH chose OB/GYN as his specialty in medicine.  Very rewarding to help patients with or without complications.  It is a very special privilege to be part of growing a family.

Thanks! It's a big blessing.  This one was extra special with our youngest having her first.  Her sisters were over the top excited!.

So true Dani. Our closest friends 29 yr old daughter somehow survived an amniotic fluid embolism, placental abruption, and a stroke when her first baby was born via emergency C-section.  Baby fine as well.  She can’t have more children but it’s a miracle they survived.

Yup, all caught up now.  I Reply as I go instead of read all then reply.    So very happy for your family.   I'm sure Kenzie and her cousins will be happy to meet Finnley too!
