Ruth Elling Turner

Ellie Turner was born on Monday, March 29th at 3:42 am. She weighed 8lbs 1oz and was 21 and 1/4 inches long.  She had all the appropriate appendages and a head full of dark blonde hair.

Both mom and baby are doing well other that Kerstin being really tired (which happens when your baby wants to come at 3 in the morning!) and are recovering. We're at CMC Main but should be heading home by noon tomorrow.  Kerstin will be able to get a little sleep without a different nurse coming in the room every 20 minutes!

If you'd like to help us transition by providing some meals we'd love to let you!  Just email TJ ( to find out when a good time would be to bring something by. And if you'd like to come hold the baby that would be great too, but please call first or email us to see when would be a good time. Oh, and don't be offended when I ask you to use hand sanitizer; it's not personal.

Here are a few pics. I'll post way more than anybody really wants to see when we get home.

11 Days left till Baby Turner's due date!!!

12 Days left!

12 Days left till the due date!

As of this morning there's still no sign of her coming early but we're hopeful.  The doctor we had today (we've had about 6 different ones at the practice) said that since Kerstin has chronic hypertension they would probably not want her to go beyond the due date and may want to induce if the baby hasn't come by then (although the doctor we saw last week didn't mention this, so we may have to ask around a little more).

He also said she would be perfectly fine if she came today and said he hoped to see us this weekend, but I guess all we can do is wait.  Either way everybody seems to be really healthy at this point.

Please keep praying that it will continue to go well and that she'll go ahead and come before she gets too huge!

2 Weeks left!

Today is officially 2 weeks from the due date for Ruth Elling Turner!!

We keep hoping she'll show up early but no luck so far. Oh, and we asked our doctor and she assured us that eating spicy food doesn't help and will probably just give Kerstin indigestion.

Please keep praying that everything goes well and that both Kerstin and Elling will be healthy and that she'll hurry up!
