You will all be in my= prayers!! I hope Gianna can avoid the NICU... Sam's lung maturity amnio I had came back a little undeveloped as well but they still went ahead with the induction...he did pretty good. He did end up in the NICU for a day under the oxygen tent but then other than Jaundice he did great!!!

Oh my, we will pray for you. Joa was born at 34wks 5days and was in the NICU for as long as I was in the hospital and went home with us. The fact that you are having a girl is beneficial when it comes to lung development. Girls do better than boys!

I cannot wait to see pics.

Our little daughter was born last night at 9:34 pm. She was 6 pounds and 7 ounces and 18 inches long. We were able to deliver vaginally.

My wife's BP was all over the place during labor, but did not get too high. She is very tired, but doing very well all things considered.

They were very concerned about the baby's lungs when she was born, but she is going well. She even latched on and nursed as soon as they were done checking her out.

She did not have to go to the NICU and will hopefully be home with her Mom tomorrow night or Monday morning.

Woo Hoo! Congratulations. You and your wife have been through so much, I am glad to hear she made it here ok. My dd was also 6 lbs 7 oz. You are lucky to be able to take her home, mine had to stay in NICU for 15 days.
