Thanks for the encouragement everyone.
I do have a GREAT doctor and a peri working together.
I am glad I know the signs this time, last time it came from nowhere and I knew nothing about pre-e. I am watching myself closely, but that contributes to the anxiety, making the days seem longer! Always checking the TP when I use the restroom, always checking for swelling, monitoring each morsel of food. These are things I would not normally do and put me on a heightened sense of alert.
As far as my size, people keep saying I am small! This drives me batty! My husband says they mean it as a compliment, but I keep thinking of how small Jess looked at 4 pounds.[ no heiny whatsoever!] I am 5'10, so I guess that is why they say that.
Anyway, here's to all of us making it to full term and bringing home healthy bundles of joy!
