Becky, I know I saw you Saturday, but I never had a chance to congratulate you and your darling baby girl is beautiful!

Congratulations Becky. I'm sorry to hear that PE did appear again for you, but so happy you and your darling Brynn are alright now.

Congratulations on your new baby and I am sorry you had to experience PE (and Mag) again. We hav almost them story. I have 3.5 year old boy born at 29 weeks with HELLP and my second son was born 3 wks early with PE/post partum PE. I hope your adjustment to "double" parenthood goes well.

I didn't escape....preeclampsia reared it's ugly head on Monday, July 28th. Until this point, I was pre-e free and feeling great. I went in for a routine check-up on Monday the 28th and had high blood pressure (1st time all pregnancy) and a swollen face. I went to the hospital for testing and was told to come back at 8:30 am on Tuesday. I never left the hospital Tuesday. Our doctor came in at 11 am and said 'we are having a baby today!'. My kidneys were not functioning properly and my blood platelet count was low and falling by the moment. So at 4:30 pm I was wheeled into the operating room.

Brynn Holland Sloan was born Tuesday, July 29th via c-section at 5:08 pm. She weighed 6lbs. 5 ozs. and was 19 inches long. Brynn was great and had zero distress and came through the delivery with flying colors. I was put on magnesium for 24 hours (pure * while conscious) and we were in the hospital for five days, only coming home late Saturday night. We are adjusting well and my son, Jacob (3 1/2), is doing really well with her and is already very helpful.

So while I thought I had escaped the dreaded pre-e and would have an amazing full-term pregnancy, pre-e was an sudden onset this time and I was in immediate danger. I made it 4 weeks and 3 days further than with my son, which is a blessing, along with a very healthy baby! No more babies for us, we are finished!

Despite having a new baby, I will begin working on the 2009 San Diego WAT in September, so let me know if you are interested in participating as a volunteer in some capacity.

Take care,
Becky
