Introducing Nicholas Robert...

Born 9:54am 11/22 at 36 weeks, 7 pounds, 7oz 19.5 inches... and preeclampsia free. He is just beyond a miracle to me, and I know my angel baby Veronica was watching over us and protecting us. My uterus was ready to rupture do to the previous classical and him being so big, so we were really really lucky!

YAY! Welcome, Nicholas! I'm so happy for all of you. Wonderful! And no pre-e!! YAY!!!
DS born Dec. 2008 at 38.5w gestation. Mild PE diagnosed 3 hours before he was born
DD born Dec. 2010 at 40w1d. BP was slightly elevated since 37w, and climbed while in labor (started on my own). Severe PE diagnosed hours after DD born.
DD born Sept. 2013 at 38w. Induced (and I had to fight for it!) due to high blood pressure. No protein, but had brisk reflexes and clonus after delivery. Doc gave me a mild preeclampsia diagnosis anyway and said I'm likely to be a chronic hypertensive later in life.
