Thanks. But in away its a relief for me and my doctor to be on the same page. She agreed with me today that its coming back. So she up the amount of test and ultrasounds to monitor us. Im kinda relieved to know that Im not a hypochondriac (sp?) as its following the pattern as it did last time Im hoping to make it as far. She said if the labs are elevated from my baseline then she would go ahead with steroids. And the grateful thing is i know What to watch for and Im blessed to be past the danger weeks for little Joey.

Im due Nov 12th so Im right there with you and i wish i was doing as good. My bp range has been in the 130/80s to 140/100. The overwhelming nausea has returned and some vision issues. So defiantly starting to feel like its coming back. Hoping to get at least another 6 weeks. Im so exhausted though i don't know how we will make it. Feeling really discouraged tonight

That's good news. This baby measured at 3 lbs. 8 oz. at 30 weeks. I was amazed she was that big.

First of all, thanks to everyone for the advice on the GD screen and back pain. I did go ahead with the 3 hour test which came back just fine. Now I don't have to think about it anymore.

The back pain remains. There have been a couple of evenings I actually had to scoot around on my rear because I couldn't put any weight on my left leg. My OB recommended going to a PT which I have started to do. Maybe I will try a support belt as well. At our ultrasound today, Vivian's head was firmly entrenched in the bottom left of my uterus. The tech had a difficult time getting a head measurement because it was so low. Hopefully she will move soon...I think that will solve the whole issue.

She weighs in at an impressive 3 lbs. 7 oz. which is exactly what Bennett weighed when he was born at 31 weeks 2 days. She is measuring exactly on target and everything looks good. BP's are ranging from 119/66-133/74. Things are still going well for the moment. My anxiety levels have been falling since we are approaching the milestone day. Here's to at least 6 more weeks of pregnancy and hopefully the end of this back pain!
