Ok, 32w 5d today! First BPP - all good. DH had some sweet tea with him in the u/s room, so when the baby wouldn't wake up, the tech asked if I had anything to drink. So, I drank some of his tea - didn't work, but then my dr "yelled" at me for drinking tea! OOPS. She sent DH to get some juice and praised him for getting OJ w/calcium. I didn't realize I was such a problem child. Anyway, the verdict on the BP is that since the majority of the time it is normal (for me) and the highs are not that high (for me)I am supposed to rest and watch it. If it starts spiking again and more, then we will add another drug. Luckily, the resting seems to have a cumulative effect. It has been low for days - not even any spikes. So we are repeating 24 hour (I finally remembered to ask for 2 jugs) and bloodwork this week and shooting for the amnio in 4 weeks! WOW. I'll keep you posted.

Yeah! Great news! Forgive me for not knowing, but why do you need an amnio in four weeks? Anyway, I'm so happy things are going well for you and baby! [:D]

Yes, an amnio to check lung development. I considered not doing it, but as most of us know, complications associated with immature lungs are something that we want to avoid. So, if he is not ready, we will just wait another week. I would certainly like to know who holds the record for 24 hour jugs?? I just turned in 2 and half jugs! I dare my dr to accuse me of being dehydrated!
