Ruby Alicia arrived June 29

We did it - crossed the finish line without any problems! Ruby Alicia was born at 8.24am weighing 7 lb 11 oz - no signs of PE or HELLP. We got out 2 days later, and everything has been going well. She's so much bigger than her sister Violet was - 3x the size...and it was so fun (and strange) to take...

Yes, we did it! June 29, 8.24am, 7 lb 11 oz.

Just about at the finish line

I made it to 37 weeks, and 38 hits tomorrow! Still feeling good, BP still under 120/80. I head to the hospital on Friday morning for a c-section (getting the tubes done too - so done having tykes!). Really happy this pregnancy has been so uneventful unlike last time. Thanks to everyone on these boar...

I agree with the poster just above me - get the steroid shots. Better safe than sorry.

Re: Thoughts and Advice on Size @ 33 weeks

My daughter was born at 32 weeks, with IUGR. I had severe PE and HELLP, and I was hospitalized for 8 days before she was born my emergency c-section due to HELLP. She was small for her gestational age - only 2.5 lbs when she should have been 4 lb or more. She quit growing well at about week 28 or 29...

34 weeks and 5 days

I have made it 2 weeks and 5 days past my last pregnancy. This feels weird, in a good way. I am getting to experience the last month of pregnancy and all its new aches and pains. I am now off work on sick leave as a precaution. So far, my BP is holding and I feel good (except for heartburn - man, am...

Re: Update - 32 weeks and counting

Things I did differently - Before we even tried for #2, we met with the MFM who treated me with baby #1, to learn if trying again was even a good idea. She thought I was a good candidate, and advised me to start doing low-dose aspirin as soon as I got pregnant, which I did. I also took calcium suppl...

Update - 32 weeks and counting

Had my second appointment with my OB on Monday. Everything is still looking good...I hit 32 weeks tomorrow with no signs of rising BP or protein. YAY! I go for another ultrasound on Friday to check growth and fluid but everything indicates the very squirmy tyke is growing well. I will have a schedul...

Swollen feet appeared last night

I am now 29 weeks and 1 day and dang it, my feet swelled up last night. They were fine by morning, and not severely large...just enough to remind me of how this whole thing started last time. I started to swell in the 28-29 week range last time and by 31 weeks, I was very, very puffy and landed in t...

Re: Rib pain

Yeah, I should give her a call in the morning. I feel fine now that I am no longer sitting for ages in one spot. But, just to be sure, I will call her.
