Wonderful news!!! I can't wait to hear the whole story and see pics of your little guy!

As always, keep watching bp and symptoms for the next 6 weeks in case of post-partum PE, but I hope you stay PE-free!!!

Baby and I are now home-I am so happy! I will try to post more later when I have some time! WOW-from 29 weeks last time to 39 this time..I can't believe it!! :)
