Hello Everyone!

Long story short, I was diagnosed with preeclampsia on Tuesday, may 8th, and delivered baby Jack at 7:42 p.m. I'm finally home, and he's in the NICU for the next 4-6 weeks, but he should be fine.

I'll post a birth story soon.

Welcome Baby Jack - grow big and strong fast so you can come home.

Sparklett - when were you due? Are you feeling better now?

Good luck with the NICU experience - I can only imagine how hard that is having babe still at the hospital.

Congratulations! Carys was due June 14th and she was born on the 8th as well! All of the Drs and nurses told me that boys don't do as well as girls, so I'm sorry to hear that your little one is still at the hospital I hope that he gets stronger faster and comes home soon to you!
