Apple Lucy Wiegand.

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!!!!!

    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!

    Congratulations to you all, she looks so precious, you kinda forget just how tiny newborns are, prem babies even more so. But she was a good weight, heavier than mine at full term! My brother was born at 30 weeks and only weighed 2lb 2oz and was the length of my dads hand (8/9ins) but you wouldn't think it now.
    I hope all goes well for you and you can have baby Apple at home where she belongs.
