first baby?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to announce that my EDD July 2nd baby arrived Monday, May 7th! She was delivered @ 32 weeks via emergency C-section after 6 weeks of hospital bedrest for severepreeclampsia. She weighed 4 lbs 12 oz and was 18 inches long.

The whole experience will take some healing on all levels but our beautiful daughter Jahara Arabella is amazing. She is in the special care nursery (another heartbreaker to come home w/o her) but already off vent and iv. My milk came in right away joy.gif and she is thriving.

SENDING LOVE AND LIGHT to all you mamas for your final weeks.
