Guess I'm next to deliver as ... I delivered on March 2nd. I started showing signs of preeclampsia on March 1st at my OB appointment, they found protein in my urine. My OB had blood tests done and was to call me back on March 2nd, however, my water broke while eating breakfast
My DH rushed home and off to the hospital we went. My blood pressure was very high so even though I had just eaten I was fast tracked to the operating room and had my c-section. I was then put in the critical care unit (where I still am as I get my own room
) and put on magnesium. The first 48 hours I wasn't feeling too hot but I'm doing much better now.
As for my baby girls ... they are 7 weeks early but doing relatively well. We have Sophia who weighed 3 lbs 13 oz and Kaelyn who weighed 3 lbs 15 oz. Sophia has been making great progress each day and we are able to go to the NICU to feed and change her. They think she'll be in the NICU for about 2 weeks. Kaelyn is a little behind her sister. She still needs a ventilator to help her breath and is being fed by a feeding tube. We also found out today she has a duct that hasn't closed properly. This is apparently common in preemies, so they started her on the meds tonight to hopefully close the duct. The nurses in the NICU are absolutely wonderful and a great resource for new parents. I couldn't get out of the wheelchair to change Sophia's diaper the first day but with some nudging from my brother and the nurse my DH was walked through it ... I was very proud of him as it is scary changing their diaper when they are so small and have tubes connected to them
Chriss, Sabi and Carolyn I hope you are all able to get some sleep and are enjoying being new mommies!
Everyone else, I hope you are doing well!
