Seems ages since I last posted! Here's an update for you. Had our 28 week scan and check-up today. BP normal, a little swelling, but only a trace of protein. Doctors think everything's OK. Saw two little four-chambered hearts beating away! Will let you know how it goes from now on.

Geraint, congratulations on impending fatherhood! You're doing a great job...becoming educated is the best thing we can do.

Another success story for you: My husband's aunt went on bedrest for preeclampsia with her triplets and delivered around 33-34 weeks. They're now almost-5-year-old beautiful, lively kids! (And half Welsh! [;)])

You will be in our thoughts - good luck to you all!

Hi Geraint, You're so right! Tho, I think our radars went off because normally the blood pressure will drop during the second trimester below prepregnancy values, so when there's an increase, especially 30 systolic and 15 diastolic, it may not be cause for concern necessarily, but it's definitely cause for watching.

And some of us noticed the rapid weight gain right before we began to spill protein, so that, too. I'm glad they're watching her closely! Twins can be tricky.

take care...

Thanks for all your kind thoughts. Her normal BP is low so the pregnancy has increased it to what most would consider to be normal. We have a home BP monitor to keep an eye on things. We have an appointment with a specialist on 2/4/04 as well so there's only two weeks until our next check up. I'll be sure to keep an eye on her until then. Let you know if anything changes.
