Passing the mark...

So far, wow! I had Tony at 27 weeks, and this Friday I'll be 26 weeks. My only concern is that now I'm appts every 1-2 weeks. My bp has been lower the past two checkups (although higher early on) but my protein is up, I think last time it was +1. (Doc said +1, nurse said +2) So I go tomorrow to make sure everything is in check. It'll be so odd to have a baby larger than 1 1/2 lbs.

(btw: said 27 weeker, Tony, is now 10 months old, 15.5 lbs, and right where he should be verbally, and physically, just around his adjusted age, we can't believe how well he's doing!)

Ditto to what Laura said. And, what are your BP's running?

Glad you've made it thus far! Best wishes for even more improvement over the last pregnancy!

Good for Tony! That is really remarkable! When is his b-day? Janie's 10 months too-almost 11.

Get that 24hr! Insist on it. How did it go today, btw?

Hurray! I am celebrating with you. This Saturday I will be 25 weeks 3 days - the day I woke up with liver pain with Ian (also april 3 was his due date and the day he came home from the hospital - ironic, huh?) Anyway, Next wednesday will be 26 weeks, the day Ian was born. I am so on top of the world. No current problems. Dropped off 24 hour today and had blood drawn to check liver funtion. Good luck all!

Passing the mark is wonderful, isn't it? A little unbelievable and so wonderful! I just passed the mark myself recently. Hopefully, we all continue to do so well!
