Maeve's Birth Announcement

Maeve Hannah Perrin was born May 4, 1999 at 7:55 PM.  She weighed 8 lbs 2 oz and was 19.75 inches long.  APGAR scores were 9 and 10 at 1 and 5 minutes.  She's cute and pudgy, and has all the expected number of toes, fingers and appendages.

Jill's doctor decided to induce Jill because of Jill's gestational diabetes and the size of the baby.  After spending Monday trying to get labor started, the doctor gave up and let Jill sleep.  They started all over about 7 AM on Tuesday.  It still took nearly 13 hours to give birth.

Daniel did a GREAT job DELIVERING the baby - just like a pro.  (He certainly had a better view of the whole thing).  The doctor said it was such a great delivery that she would have dads deliver more often.

Hilde's Birth Announcement

Hilde Austin Perrin was born on July 25, 2001 at 1:50 AM.  She weighed 8 lbs 15 oz and was 20.25 inches long.  APGAR scores were 8 and 9 at 1 and 5 minutes.  She's as cute as Maeve was, except her fingernails are longer.

As with Maeve, Jill's doctor decided to induce Jill because of Jill's gestational diabetes.  One day after the due date, Jill showed up at 7:30 AM to begin.  The most activity during the day was caused by Jill laughing, which made all sorts of noise on the external fetal heart monitor.  Jill got to walk around during labor this time.

It wasn't until after midnight that the dilation really started coming along.  At about 1:30 AM, Jill was examined again and the doctors said it was time to push. "Paramedic Dan" got to spend his time on the business end again.  The doctor and the 2nd year resident let Daniel share in the work during the delivery.  After only 20 minutes of pushing, Hilde was delivered.  Even after the delivery, Daniel got to deliver the placenta with the doctors just watching.

Later that afternoon, Maeve came to visit.  The first thing she wanted to do was to hold Hilde, and spent most of the time kissing Hilde.  Hilde was happy to nurse constantly, and Jill was feeling just fine by noon.
