Sorry to be posting this so late, I couldn't get good wifi access in the hospital. I went to my MFM appt. last Wed., and had a second spike of my bp into the 170/110 range, my protein was 2+, and my amniotic fluid level had dropped to 3.5. SO, all things considered, it was time to have a baby! So our sweet Samuel was born at 5:58 PM, weighing 6lbs 11 oz, 19 1/2 inches long. Had a couple of issues with breathing in the first 5 minutes, and a couple of low blood sugars in the first couple of hours, but never went to the NICU, and we both got to come home on Saturday! We are so happy and blessed!
