Well, I had my baby...

7 Weeks early! She was born 9/11/11 at 5:30 pm. I went to my women's center because I was really swollen and had a slight headache that would not go away.  It was a Wednesday night and I ended up being admitted that night because my blood pressure was high and there was a lot of protein in my urine.  The next day I was transported to a hospital in another city 2 hrs away that was better equipped to handle premature babies.  I was diagnosed with severe pre-eclampsia and my blood pressure would not stay down so they ended up inducing me on Saturday night.  I would not dialate more than 5cm so I had to have a c-section. I was so unprepared.  I did not have my bag packed and we did not have her room even halfway started.  I was finally discharged on last Friday and my baby is in the NICU.  She is doing really good and steadily progressing and gaining weight,  Please send your thoughts and prayers this way.
