Our Birth Story: I went to L&D on sunday 5/19 to check out my blood pressure due to it being high that morning and the Friday before. It was around 181/102. They checked the babies heartbeat and due to the fact that she had a couple of dips in to the 90's and little below they kept me over night and wanted me to do a 24 urine test to check proteins. They did an ultrasound to see how she was (perfect) but they decided to give me steroid shots to build to her lungs up just incase. The night was long but my blood pressure was ok, but due to another drop in her heartbeat in the morning they wanted to do an c-section because of my blood pressure and proteins I had preeclampsia. So at 10:41 on 5/20 I went in for a c-section. By 10:49 she was born. She had to be on a Cpap for the night, but the next day she was on a small oxygen tube and by the afternoon she could breathe on her own. She's amazing and now is off the IV and eating breast milk via feeding tube. She's out little RAD superstar and I can't wait for her to come home <3
