My brother Scott and his wife Kim delivered a beautiful new addition to the family on Friday June 18th. Lilah Willow was 8lbs, 2 ozs and 19 1/2 inches long. Kim is 35, this is her first baby. No problems during pregnancy (just like me). She went to the doctor Monday and her BP was 158/89 and her feet are starting to swell.
I almost died from my bout with PP PE, and am not sure how to keep her from freaking out, but I think she needs to go back to the doctor immediately. This brings back horrible memories for me, and I knwo that it may be other things, but I can't think of how to reiterate my story to her and make her go in.
Anybody got any suggestions??
