I am 21 weeks now and this mornings appointment was great! I am quite surprised and even my doc said she is pleasantly surprised. My weight gain has slowed down and is pretty good, my blood pressure is where it is supposed to be with the labetelol, my urine dip showed no protein and the baby is loud and spunky!! I still am seen weekly, and started another round of labs including the 24hr urine even though the office dip was good. We have a growth ultrasound in 3 weeks. She said if we can make it to 34 weeks we can deliver at that hospital and not need to be transferred to Madison where the hospitals are better equipped for preemie babies. She said if everything stays as good as it is we will not go over 36-37 weeks. Our goal is a healthy baby and mom not to see how far we can push things. I agree!!! Things are looking VERY good right now. I must say that I still feel like I am holding my breath for something to pop up but I will take the good appointment.
