Well, here we are 2 weeks past our first goal!!! Baby is 2.5 pounds and growing well. Yesterday the peri said that if week can keep my BP under control, he sees us making it to 37+ weeks. Yea!! Unfortunately, my BP is starting to act up. More labs this week and see OB next week. ALL seems good...

Congrats on making it to your goal. It is great that you peri is optomistic - I know that it made me feel great when mine said that he thought I could make it to term!! Hang in there - you can make it!

Yay!! How wonderful it must feel to make it past that first goal. I will keep praying that you sail right through all your goals and have a big chubby baby to bring home in 10 weeks...!!!

Thanks for all the support. When I was up at 2 am last night, I dreamed up a way to fund the Preeclampsia Foundation...one of you entrepreneurs needs to develop water that actually fights heartburn. I mean, what torture it is to know that I have to drink it even when it sets me on fire! Maybe a water/liquid calcium mixture. Just give all proceeds to the foundation - i will get my 15 minutes of fame on Jay Leno or something!!!

Anyway, Ian has 2 ear infections, a sinus infection and a throat infection. Poor baby - only the 2nd ear infection ever. He is soooo good when he is sick. The hard part was going to the dr. DH is working today, so I had to go it alone. After not picking him up for about 10 weeks, I picked up and carried him a ton today. Luckily, I feel fine, BP is normal (for me!) I am queen of using the quads and not the back/abs. I am just paranoid of bleeding/abruption since I am on aspirin and have htn. It did feel good to act normal for one day. Sorry i am rambling. I will check in later.

You need to patent that idea!!
After all they have caffienated water, so why not??
I'd buy it in bulk!!!
