Babies are here

What a journey my DD has been on. Well last night me and DH didn't go to bed until gone 1am. Just couldn't settle....then SIL rings at 1.20am and taken his wife (our DD) up to the delivery suite (this being the 3rd time in two weeks) as her BP was rocketing and they were having trouble stablelising it due to the pre-eclampsia. Anyway after a sleepless night of tv watching and cups of tea. He rings at 6.30am and she had been monitored all through the night and the Doctors on their 9am round were going to make a decision as to what to do.
Anyway the babies were delivered today by "C" section at 11.58 baby boy 3lb 6oz and a little girl 4ln half an ounce. They came out pink and crying so thats a good sign. DD still has high BP and is still being monitored....etc....will see them tomorrow but all I want to do is give my DD a great big hug....anyway am off now for some knitting therapy, a large scotch and chocs.

I've been out of commission for a bit, and haven't checked on you for quite a while. I do hope all goes well from here on out. One of my best friend's 250 pound dad started out life as a 3 pound preemie. It won't be long until they're walking on chubby legs getting into everything.

Hope you can get some rest.

Congratulations!! Congratulations!! I've been thinking about you - it's been a stressful time all round, enjoy your scotch and chocs. I'm so glad everything's gone well.

How are your DD and the weans doing? Is her blood pressure improved now? Must be a relief for you that it's turned out well :)
