After being in the hospital on bed rest due to pre e and extreme headaches for almost 4 weeks, the shit hit the fan March 8 and my little monkey Josephine Ruth aka Jojo, was born via terrible c-section, at 34 weeks 5 days gestation weighing in at 5 lbs 12 oz and 19 in long. She's a big'un but she's so tiny also. Breast pumping is going slow but I'm trying. When/if I get the chance, pics will be posted. Eventually I'll calm my nerves and sleep too lol.

Congrats! My Daughter was born at 34 weeks and six days at 4 lbs 2.3 ozs. Nice weight on your little one sorry it was so traumatic. Noelles entrance into this world was similar. I started pumping to all I have to say is keep at it. :) Noelle was so little and had a weak suck so after she was allowed to nurse I had to put her on then give her a bottle then pump... repeat ever three hours, after 3 months she could nurse 100% it is so rewarding now she is going to be nine months old on the 22nd was born June 22nd. If you need someone to talk to I am here. Good luck and congrats again, heal up it took me a while but you will get there! (my BP's were like in the 200s/100s after I delivered my body was almost failing.
