Apple Lucy Wiegand.

August 22, 2012














Apple Lucy was born at 7:15 am on August 21, 2012. 
I went into labor at 12:40 am and was in for my third c.section by 7 am.
36 weeks and 2 days
7 lbs, 4 ounces
She has been in NICU since delivery but is doing fabulous! 

We are completely over the moon!!! She is the sweetest little thing and smells like heaven on earth, I couldn't be more blessed. The kids got to meet her today for the first time (pics coming soon) and I got to hold her for the first time today!!

We are so in love!!!!!

  95. Congratulations! And what a great weight indeed! I was 1lb heavier and I was a week late!

    One thing I wonder though, with C-Sections, if you've had three, are they able to cut in the same place as before, or do they make an incision elsewhere and you end up with another scar? I'm just wondering - I can't tell what life might throw at me in the future!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Congratulations, she's a beauty and I'm so glad you're all doing well!! I've kept you in my prayers and I'm so excited that you get to experience a new baby :)
