Well my daughter made it all the way to our scheduled c section date. Laurell was 5 lbs 4 oz, 18.5 inches long. Delivery went well with no complications. This is our last child as I had my tubes tied. Laurell is nursing pretty well and content most of the time. I will post a pic as soon as we get home from the hospital.

No pree this time and the dr has already cut my bp meds back so it is looking good. Hope everyone is having a good week.

Wonderful! Welcome, Laurell! So glad you're both healthy - and bonus that nursing is going well.

As you know, keep an eye out for the next 6 weeks just to make sure you stay PE-free in these post-partum weeks. But Yay! for being able to lower the labetalol already!
