Reply to How early did you deliver and your baby not have to have a long stay in the N...

I had preeclampsia, but it was not diagnosed until 35 weeks. I started to feel like s*^+ around 33 weeks and then my blood pressure started going through the roof. I checked in the hospital one Saturday and they kept me an entire week. They gave me the choice of being induced or a scheduled c section. I chose the c section because my cervix was not ready in the least for inducement. Lucky thing I chose a c section because my baby had flipped in two days from head down to transverse and he was face up. Doc said it would’ve been an emergency c section had I tried to have her naturally. So at exactly 36 weeks I had the C section. Townes (my son) weighed 5 lbs 15 oz at birth and had minor minor trouble breathing immediately after delivery. Was off all assisted breathing machines within a day, and IV fluids within a couple of days. He stayed in the NICU five days.
