Baby girl is here (4 weeks early!)

I was admitted yesterday around noon for pre-eclampsia.  Around 3:30 they started pitocin, and at 5:30 they broke my waters.  Because my platelets were too low (clotting issues) I wasn't able to have an epidural.  They gave me some other sort of pain med but it was still incredibly painful...I think it was called strata maybe?

Baby girl was born at 11:41 pm, weighing in at 5 lbs 5 oz.  She's a cute little peanut, my heart is hers!  Still no name, but we're leaning towards Annabelle.

They have me on magnesium sulfate (started that around noon yesterday, for the high bp) and it is the devil!  It makes me feel sooo loopy and out of it.  They said they'll probably keep me on it until 5 pm! 

Here's some pictures!!
