brandi, what a crazy crazy ride!! So glad you're home and delivered and out of the worst of pregnancy. And I hope that baby girl is home with you soon, snuggling and giving you lots of love! I'll be thinking about you!

I am so glad that baby is out of you! I hope she does better soon.... Congrats! I hope your body settles down soon as well. You have been put through the ringer for sure. Though I had a long period of time between start of induction and delivery, I was fortunate to have the epidural which helped a ton...I can't imagine how miserable it would have been without it!

Oh WOW Brandi, what a story! I'm sorry that things were so rough for you, especially the seizures postpartum. My thoughts immediately went to eclampsia; how bizarre it was your meds instead. What a relief that you are doing ok now.

Congrats on your little GIRL surprise! I'm sorry to hear she is in NICU and having a hard time. I hope she recovers quickly and is home with you soon. You and little Kendra will be in my thoughts.

Thanx all.

Katnzt---My profile pic right now is me and my husband standing in front of our flowers in the front of our house.
Kendra is still on the vent 100% oxygen. Repeat echo tomorrow to see how the PPHN is doing. She is also under the billi lites now. They started her on fat too since she can't eat or even have a feeding tube yet.

I am doing alright. I haven't had any "episodes" for myself. I was in the ER today which was just aggrivating. Kidney stones and some bowel issues, but I'm okay :0) BP went up kinda high but I was in a lot of pain. ( 145/111)

Laura-----Even though keeping me longer might have been a little better lol, I was SOOOO glad to get out of there!!! I wasn't put on the mag because they ruled out eclampsia. It just appeared to be that at first. It was all my sympathetic nervous system going nuts from quitting the beta blocker cold turkey, especially at 1200mg a day. At least thats what I was told. I'm doing much better.

I'll let you all know any updates on Kendra. I'm SOOOO glad to NOT be pregnant anymore and never again :0) I'm VERY blessed to have my three beautiful children.
