Congratulations, Amy! A good birth experience with PE is one where you get a healthy mama and healthy baby!! Come back and share your mag story, though! Welcome to that club [;)]. Twitchy reflexes make me worry about CNS involvement and seizures, so I'm glad you got magged for it this time. I hope you're able to regroup a little and enjoy your new baby girl!!!

Welcome Earthside, Izzy!

I hope you have a speedy recovery, Amy; that blindsided feeling is no fun.

I wont write long. very tired. thurday am went to labor and delivery with pressures of 153/100. found i was spilling protien and had plus two reflexes. they admitted me then and began the induction and put me ritght on Mag. I was on mag from thrusday to saturday. the induction took two days. they began pictocin on satruday at 9am. I had a marathon labor of 5 hours!!!!!!!! by 230 pm i had pushed her out. it was a very horrible, painful delivey and she came out kind of sideways but i pushed her out. Izzy weighed 6lbs 9 oz 19 inches and was born at exactly 37 weeks. I held off pe till 36 1/2 weeks. we came home today. Izzy doing very good and is a wonderful baby. I am swollen with swollen ankles and fingers. Still twichy nerves cns irritation and some hyperrefelxia. Peri said we caught it in time and I do not need to be on bedrest but to continue my bp meds. bps behaved themselves during delviery and are running ok now. I go back to peri in two days to get checked again. will write more and send pics when have more energy. PE is nasty but have beautiful baby.

I want an official "I survived mag" shirt....will tell about that later. :)
