Lucy Linh Cramer

Lucy Linh Cramer was born on April 28, 2011 at 1:45 PM in the afternoon.  She weighed in at 8 pounds 1 ounce and measured at 20.5 inches.  The birth story was not the most glamorous, but began with a regular doctor appointment to discuss my high blood pressure I developed the last week of pregnancy.

They decided I would get induced and moved me to a birthing room

This is how high my blood pressure got which is a sign of preeclampsia

She weighed in at 8 pounds 1 ounce which only makes us wonder what if she came in on time in two weeks, what would she have weighed in at?
