Topic: Baby is here
Well, my baby boy made his appearance on Thursday, he was 3 weeks and 2 days early but the preeclampsia I have been battling since 27 weeks kicked into high gear and my Doctor was afraid to wait any longer, so she started an induction at 7:30 Thursday morning, but after 12 hours of labor with good strong contractions I couldn't progress past 7, my Doctor told me when she first started seeing me that I have a extra ring of tissue around my cervix, but after checking that last time she told me she actually felt several more of these tissue rings on the internal part of the cervix that she felt were acting almost like rubber bands that were preventing the cervix from getting any farther. All the while my blood pressure just kept climbing, so she decided the best course of action was to do an emergency C-section, it took her less than an hour to get him out, and get my BP's stable. All in all it was a scare I was not ready for but I must say that the end product was more than worth it!!!
