Thank you all so much, it has been so wonderful to have you guys through this! I was so scared and nervous coming into this pregnancy and this board has truly been a saving grace for me. I have found advice, support, laughter, and an abundance of kindness here. I can honestly say that it would have been a lot more difficult to go through this without this board and all of you lovely ladies here! So, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I am going to take it easy this weekend, while still trying to keep busy. I just can't sit still, I feel like I can hear the seconds ticking on the clock while I sit. So, I have to keep moving otherwise time will drag by entirely too slowly for me. I am resting though, just in short spans more often throughout the day.

I am going to post her story and pics ASAP after we get home! I absolutely cannot wait to see how pretty she is! It is driving me crazy!

5 more days....:)

Here you go! I'm so excited for you. I would say rest up too but I know it's a little exciting waiting! I hope you have an easy delivery, quick recovery, and a great hospital experience.

Good luck Mandy!

You are the first person I've read about that has had PE much more severely second time around. I too had mild PE with first at 36 weeks and then severe PE with second at 24 weeks, losing my second son. Have not come across it happening this way around before so I've watched your story with interest and am so pleased for you.

So, I had my appt today and got all my paperwork ready for section, signed consent for tubal and got orders for pre-op bloodwork. It was so very surreal to be sitting there discussing the section and the game plan for her birth. I think I am still in disbelief that we have actually made it. It is an amazing feeling and I feel truly blessed to be where we are today.

I got home and set up the bassinet in our room, got the living room half way set up for my recovery from section, and got a couple little things done. This weekend is spring cleaning, and that's it. I am trying to stay as busy as I can so the time flies by.

I don't have a laptop, so as soon as we get home I will get pictures uploaded for you guys! And of course, her story! I can't wait to share it....
