thank you for everything

I wanted to say thank you wonderful ladies who made me feel so welcome. this may be to much info for some. I have to say may has been very tramatic for my family. my mom was in the hospital for almost i week. On the day she was getting discharged, I ended up in the hospital for bleeding and found out i was having contractions. . the doctors and nurses got them under control. unfortunately when i was back home I was swelling big time, having headaches and just ached all over. I went back in to hospital sunday nite. I ended up being transfered to a bigger hospital that could handle severe pre eclampsia and a very early birth. I am lucky to be alive, because after mon it is a miracle. my blood pressure was 230/130. They did an emergency c section and i found out later I had cardiac arrest while in the OR. i am very grateful to still be here. I had the emergency c section on mon, I was in the ICU till tues afternoon and in maternity till friday. Arabella was born on monday may 23. she weighs 2lbs 2 oz. She is stable and doing alright. she is my little sweetheart, the nurses keep telling me she is a fighter and fiesty. I hope so.

OMG! I'm glad you are okay. That is a dangerous level for your BP to be. I'm glad Arabella is stable. Please KUP!

OMG - I am so glad you are OK! I can't believe you had your little baby! How far along were you? My T&P's will be with your LO until she is safely out of the NICU.

Omg, I cannot even imagine. I am so glad to hear that you and little Arabella are doing well. What an ordeal. I will keep you both in my prayers. She shares my birthday - so she will definitely be tough. Wink KUP and when the time comes and you are up to it, definitely post some pics of your lovely daughter.

You are a fighter, so I know your LO is one too! I'm so glad they got you transferred to a hospital better prepared to handle both of you. My nephew turned 1 and my new niece was born that day, it's a lucky one. T&P with you all! Hope your mom is ok too.

*lurker* im glad your OK! Your little girl will be ok. My girls were born at 25 weeks and they are feisty as can be. It'll be a long NICU road but she's here and alive and so are you and that's a huge blessing in itself! You could have both lost your lives! That's dangerously high blood pressure! Ill of course keep you in my prayers and ask God to give you the strength he gave me to get through this. PM me with any questions you have!!!

Keeping your little girl and you in my thoughts. That is so scary, I keep having dreams where this happens, I couldn't even imagine it. KUP on her progress.

I saw that your LO was born and thought I'd tell you that my second DD was born at exactly 30 weeks. She is now four years old and very healthy. She was in the special care nursery (the NICU was full and she did not have all the major problems that some babies have) for about three weeks then we were able to transfer her to the hospital near our home. She was there for another two and a half weeks. She needed to grow and learn how to eat and be able to maintain her body temperature. I pray that your health will return quickly so that you can spend time with Arabella. That must be very hard. Hopefully you have already been able to hold her. If no one has said anything yet, girls usually do better then boys in the NICU.
