The important thing is you and your baby are safe, but I think they could have delivered you sooner. When I was only 26.5 weeks pregnant I got a horrible headache and started seeing spots and they didn't waste anytime with my c-section. I guess it is a judgement call on there part.

could anything else have been done?
