Krissie how are you feeling?

My scan went ok, it was really too soon to see anything but the gestational sac and the fetal pole. But that looked good, and second round of bloodwork was awesome! Doc is super confident and I have another scan next Friday followed by an apt at his office when he will most likely transfer me to the OB. (Sadly he is not seeing OB patients or delivering babes any longer)

I am feeling ok- a little sick in the mornings but it passes pretty quickly after I have a bite to eat. I still cannot believe that this is actually happening!! I have to keep pinching myself. What a long journey of ups and downs it has been.

That all sounds positive mrscletus. Fx your next scan goes well.

Well after seeing my doctor yesterday my blood pressure was still climbing. He doubled my dose of blood pressure meds but said if it keeps going up I'll end up being induced sooner. But the latest he will let me go is January 24th, so that is when my induction is scheduled. I will be 37+2 so hopefully she is healthy.

Miss Alice Rose is finally here!

I came in on 1/23/18 to start cervical ripening. They did 4 rounds of cytotec. I was not dilating so I asked to change it up about 4. They decided on a folley bulb. That was inserted about 6 pm. I tried to sleep from 8:30-11 but was having some contractions so asked for some Tylenol. At 11:15 I woke up needing to pee so got up and my water went and I was 3 cm. After that the contractions were just on top of each other. She was born right about 1:30 am on 1/25/18. I had requested an epidural but it was all so fast I ended up having her with nothing. There was only my nurse in the room when she was born.

She was 6 lbs 5 oz, 18 inches long. She is doing so good and I am just so in love with her.

Awe Krissie- what an amazing birth story!! She is perfect. It looks from your profile pic that Christian is going to be a great big brother!!

We had a second scan on the 19th and got to see/hear the heartbeat- very strong at 160 bpm. I am feeling on top of the world (well except for being tired) and just cannot express how happy I truly am that this worked out finally. We had a long road together huh ladies??

Mrscletus- how lovely that you got to see such a strong heartbeat! It really was a long journey I'm so happy that it finally worked out for you guys.

Christian is doing really well. We are only 6 days in but so far he seems to be adjusting well. Alice is also a very call baby and is getting on a feeding routine pretty quickly so hopefully that continues to help.

I've continued to struggle with very high bp postpartum. I have a follow up tomorrow because it is scary and combined with bad pitting edema all over I'm worried my preeclampsia hasn't resolved.
