Wow... I guess I should introduce myself.

Are you part of the NICU club? Do you have a child who is still struggling with the effects of being born too soon from preeclampsia? Share your concerns and stories here among parents who have been there.

I've actually been here for a while... Since about November of 2002 to be exact. I just don't think that I've ever posted before. Oops.

My name is Jani. I'm Mommy to the cutest little guy that you could ever imagine, Joshua. He's a 32wk preemie, born on 6/22/02. He's a big, busy 19 month old now! I developed Severe Preeclampsia, that was initially missed by my primary OB. Fortunately, her colleagues were a little more attuned to my bad situation turned dire, and saved both my, and my baby's life. After talking with a Perinatologist, and allowing him to review my medical records, a few months ago, I was also informed that according to the test results at the time, I had HELLP Syndrome... Nobody ever mentioned that, at the time.

So, here I am. [:)] This site & community has given me a lot of answers, and much needed support over the last year and a half. Thanks!
