It's a girl!

My brother and his wife had their baby this morning. She was due on Sunday and had a doctor appt. yesterday as it looked like she hadn't even dropped yet. My brother told me that they went in yesterday around 7 pm because the contractions were about 12 minutes apart. She was measuring at 4 cm dialated. Then once they were there a while the contractions slowed down and the doctor sent them home at 11 pm. They went home and went to rest (sleep for Matt). Tammy woke him at 1:30 am and said they needed to go back. The contractions were so close there was no way to time them. They got there at 2 am and she was at 10 cm. My newest niece was born at 2:36 am weighing 8lbs. 12oz, 20 inches long. I can't wait to meet my little Madelyn Kate! Which makes 7 girl grandchildren on my dad's side between me (3), Matt (2) and my stepbrother (2) who also is having another but won't know what it is until it is here.
