37 weeks and 5 days--Baby Nicholas Daniel

Postby claricemaala » Tue Apr 03, 2012 00:58 am

I have made my first full term baby after having two pre term babies and preeclampsia in 2005 and 2010. My MFM decided to go for elective C section exactly at 37 weeks. I had no preeclampsia and my baby boy was born on 2/28/2012 at 6 lbs 4 oz. It took me this long to post for I was worried (Plus of course the NO SLEEP time with the every two hr feedings at night.) and that I could not believe that all went fine. Well, perfect and God gave me a perfect baby! I was soo happy to have the baby next to me as soon after the delivery and had the baby next to me during my recuperation.

I thank everybody in this forum for their support. I was quietly reading all the post during my entire pregnancy. Though I was posting a great deal in the beginning of the pregnancy, I stopped after the second ttrimester for I did not want to jinx the pregnancy.
I pray for more successfull preeclampsia free pregnancies and haelthy babies!!!

Rainbow baby due Feb 2012. Hoping for a looooonnnnnnngggg uneventful pregnancy.

I will as soon as I figure out how to make the file smaller. It keeps telling that the pic is too BIG.
