Welcome Blaine!

Please just keep watching your bp and signs and symptoms - we worry about post-partum PE for the next 6 weeks. I hope you are in the clear though and will get to enjoy your new baby without any more health issues!!

PE showed up yesterday. Just a mild case but because it moved so quickly with Cooper's pregnancy and we were only a day short of 36 weeks my OB thought it was best to go ahead and deliver before I got really sick. After no signs or symptoms up through last week's checkup, I had a minor headache, my bp went into the 140s/100s, protein was showing for the first time during this pregnancy and I had gained 7 pounds since last weighed two weeks ago after only gaining two Pounds total before that. Blaine was born at 8:44 yesterday evening via c-section. He is 5 pounds, 15 ounces and 19.5 inches long. Blaine is perfect and both he and I are doing great. I am hoping to be able to go home tomorrow or Friday. While I hate that PE showed up at all, I am very thankful that it held off until now and are extremely grateful to have a healthy child and not to have gotten as sick as I could have.
