Abigail Jean Van Dyk was born last night (Sunday, Dec 17th) at 8:51pm, weighing in at 8lb2oz. The OB told Megan to be thankful that she went into labour early, as going to full term (or perhaps even later) would have resulted in a 10 or 11 pound baby. Just goes to show that the Lord knows exactly what He's doing! :) She did deliver Abby the "old fashioned way" and does have some stitches from an episiotomy but does NOT have any internal stitches. Both Megan and Abby are doing well, although Megan has to stay in the hospital until at least Tuesday morning as she spiked a high fever during labour and as such her OB wants her on IV meds for 36 hours just to be safe.
Megan is very happy to not be pregnant anymore and to finally be able to hold her sweet little girl in her arms.
Congratulation Megan and Rick!
