I'm one of those long and lingering pre-e cases. With our 2nd we met criteria at 29 weeks, with our 3rd at 25 weeks and it just lingered on not changing too much until the last few weeks. Like the previous posters we kept very good tabs on myself and baby, which included twice weekly NSTs, 24 hour catches every other week (in our 3rd, every week in our 2nd) and weekly blood draws with both. With our 3rd we also took BP meds which I credit with being able to hold on as long as we did since our BP was MUCH more labile and so much earlier on.
Keep posted, here's hoping you have many more uneventful weeks of pregnancy ahead of you!
