*~*amber*~* 's baby girl is here! **Update 1**

Hi ladies! I have an update from Amber. For some reason she is having trouble logging on to preg.org

So Ed and I would like to welcome our daughter Bria Lynn to the world. I ended having pre eclampsia and had to be delivered ASAP. Bria came at 10:11am (9/16/12) weighing only 1 lb and 9 oz. Turns out my placenta wasn't functioning correctly so she wasn't getting the proper nutrition. She is in the nicu so please pray for her!

Also,
So the doctors say that Bria is doing pretty good! She is def in for a long road ahead of her though! My placenta stopped functioning and she had close to no amniotic fluid around her at all! Pretty scary! Please please pray for her to gain weight and be able to come home soon!

Update from today:
So Bria is doing better this a.m. She had her intabator removed and is now just breathing with regular oxygen and room air. Me on the other hand... Still severe pre-eclampsia. My blood pressure is crazy and my blood platelets are very low so I could end with bleeding in my brain according to doc! Please... if you are religious at all, say a pray for the two of us! This may be the most trying times of our lives!

Here is a pic of the little sweetheart!

Thinking of you Amber!!!!! Welcome to your little girl and LOTS of prayers are heading your way. Lots of rest and healing. (((((((hugs))))))))

Update 1:
'Bria's platelets are back down as well as her blood sugar and that if my friends on preg.org could please pray I would really apprecaite it! I still have only been able to hold her just on time 2 nights again and its killing me! My BP is starting to come down, but I am still on magnesium and am not allowed to get out of bed due to my low platetelets as well/ Mine are at 32,000 and the normal low number is 150,000. Bria's are down to 23,000 right now so its pretty scary! She gets her blood drawn again at 4pm to see if she will need to get the transfusion.'
And....
'Just got to see my baby girl and she is just amazing! I have never been so in love in my entire life! She is just like a mini baby. Looks just like Erykah. Her white blood cells are slightly low as well are her plateletes. She will be getting an ultrasound of her brain tom to check for bleeds, so please keep her in your thoughts and prayers! Thank you so much to everyone that is praying for us! It helps more than you will ever know!'

She was due Oct. 26th, so she was a month and 10 days early.

My thoughts are with them, if she needs to talk to anyone about the nicu journey I am
Ore then willing.

As for plateletsine were low too. I was told 15000 is when they really get concerned
