I went in to the MFM this morning for a bpp. LO looks wonderful. 85%ile for head and 87%ile for abdomen..His weight right now as of 25w3d is 2lbs 4oz. This makes me VERY happy, seeing as we know for a fact I am not going to make it to my edd Oct.2.2012. Blood flow from the cord looks perfect, as well as the placenta.
Bp was 141/85 and +1 protein was found in my urine. I did ask for the 24hr urine catch and received that lovely little bucket, so I will turn that in Monday morning and will have the results from that and blood work Wednesday. I also inquired about the steroid injections for his lungs and they said this is absolutely something we will do; However it will hopefully be a few weeks/months before we do this as they said ideally we want to have these injections as close to delivery as possible.
My OB will be seeing me twice a week now, instead of a weekly visit with the MFM. I suppose they were just for a second opinion, and now have info on me in case I need to switch to them in the future. I still haven't been officially diagnosed with pre-e, but they made it clear that they believe they have caught the early development of it. I am not sure weather this is good or bad...Good to make myself aware and educated and have the chance to manage it better but then again I worry that being so early on in my pregnancy, I might have to deliver before 34 weeks, which I was told today is our goal.
Thank you ladies so much!! I am so glad I have found out about this site and board. Didn't know pre-e existed a week ago and now I feel much more prepared for everything.
