My little boy was born today! Aeden Christopher weighs in at 5 lbs and 12 ozs. He's 19 1/2 inches long. Apparently, I developed a placental abruption (25%) which is why I went into labor. He's in the NICU right now, but doing very well. I'll update more later.

Mama to Aeden, : my little NICU grad and Conner and Liam () my precious twins. is due mid April!

Congratulations!!! I had a placental abruption during my pregnancy with dd, they can be so scary. I am glad that you had such a great outcome. How long does he need to be in the NICU? PM me if you have any questions about life in the NICU (dd spent two weeks there). It sounds like he was a good birth weight, so hopefully he can go home soon.

Wow, the first June baby!!

Congrats! I look forward to hearing more about your experience! Ds#2 was in the NICU for 10 days, so I know what it's like having a baby in the NICU. You will be in my thoughts!
