Ruby Alicia arrived June 29

We did it - crossed the finish line without any problems! Ruby Alicia was born at 8.24am weighing 7 lb 11 oz - no signs of PE or HELLP. We got out 2 days later, and everything has been going well. She's so much bigger than her sister Violet was - 3x the size...and it was so fun (and strange) to take home a baby right away. Very nice to avoid the NICU.

I'd post a pic but I can't figure out how.
Severe PE/HELLP - diagnosed 31 weeks, Violet born 32 weeks - April 23, 2010 - 2.5 lb (IUGR). 5 weeks in NICU, home and going strong.

Welcome Ruby Alicia!!!

I imagine you know this already, but please continue to keep track of your bps and signs and symptoms for the next 6 weeks - postpartum PE can hit up to 6 weeks PP. I hope you continue to sail through with no more complications, and enjoy your "big" girl coming straight home with you :).
