Well after a long 39 weeks and 5 days, Sadie Pace Fleniken decided that she was ready to make her entrance into the world. On Sunday April 6, Ashley started having contractions. After having contractions all through the night, we decided to call the doctor on Monday morning. Her contractions were now 4 minutes apart. The doctor told us to come in and let the doctor examine her. We waited a long hour in the doctor's office (with contractions) and finally they saw us. The doctor had told us that he was going to check her but he would more than likely go on and send us to the hospital. As soon as he checked Ashley, he said she had to get over to the hospital STAT!!! She was dialated already 4 cm and Sadie was going to be coming anytime. So at 12:30 pm we checked into the hospital. Sadie arrived at 4:24 pm weighing 7 pounds 5 ounces and she measured 20.5 inches long.
