At 20 weeks my ultrasound showed I had a lobe on my placenta, at 26 weeks I was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, at 33weeks 5 days I found out I developed HELLP syndrome. I was induced and 2 long days later our 3rd daughter was born at exactly 34 weeks. Weighing in at 1896grams (4lbs 3oz) and 18 inches. She spent 15 days in NICU as a feeder and grower. The first year there were a few complications but she is now 3 years old, still tiny, a little delayed compared to other kids the same age, but she is super feisty and will catch up in no time! We are so lucky!
