Thank you! I'm trying not to get too excited, but today my BP has been 113-120/50s! My original normal!! We're still on the Labetalol 2x a day 200mg... but I'm crossing all crossables that the end might be insight.

And baby had her first check up today and she's well on her way to getting back up to her birth weight. So strange to already be looking at her. Today was supposed to be her birthday, and of course her due date is still three weeks off. So funny to see them move and think... huh, I totally know what that kick feels like! :)

We're so grateful.

Lauren, so sorry about the symptoms not going away! I hope in the next COUPLE of days (at most) everything gets back to normal. I'm so glad both of you are now going home and good luck with everything. Your news is uplifting to me as I will be 36w1d tomorrow.
Prayers and hugs,
Mistie

She's wireless! I got discharged yesterday, and she is awaiting her discharge papers as we speak. Besides some high flow O2 near her, she didn't require any intervention and really just stayed for observation.

I was hoping all my symptoms would magically go away after delivery like they did with our 2nd but no such luck. Swelling is the worst it's been and got to see some floaters and BP still junk. So ironic because during delivery and right after my BP was so low they were actually concerned and had me skip a dose of meds. So I'll be keeping a close eye on our lil' one and hubby will be keeping a close eye on me and once home will see our OB to check pressures and see if we want to adjust meds.

Thank you again for all the awesome positive thoughts! :)

Thank you everyone for all the good thoughts!

Flori- Yeah related to the GD. They "had" to give her formula which was upsetting because she started nursing right away- but it got her levels back up and they've stayed there.

Baby is spending hopefully just the night in the NICU while they figure out her 02 levels and general lethargy- I swear her eyes have only been open for 5 minutes since she was born.

Congratulations! How scary about the abruption. Thank goodness you were there and waiting to deliver. I had GD with my last pregnancy and my little one had some pretty low blood sugar for a while but perked up pretty soon.

Oh my gosh Lauren, I'm so happy baby is here safe and sound!

I'm sorry it wasn't what you had planned, but it's good they were monitoring you so closely. 36+1 is awesome. Congratulations! Hug and kiss baby for me.

Were her sugars low because of the GD?
