Luke arrived via C section just a few days ago. On April 29th.

I went into the hospital with severe preecclampsia and they once they stabilized me the babies heartbeat began dropping. The doctors I had (all 6 of them tending to me with all my problems lol) all gathered around assesing an ultrasound and the baby would not move for nearly an hour. We all agreed to C section and they prepped me up and did it. I was so relieved to hear his little cry when they took him out!

He is very small still. He was 2lbs 3 oz at birth and has dropped a little bit dince then but is doing very well considering he was only 29 weeks. He is breathing room air on his own and only has a couple minor gastro issues the doctors are confident will also be fine.

He looks amazing for a preemie, even a little bit more plump than I've seen preemies. He's adorable, momma... Wishing you both the best.
