Glad that BP meds are working. Have fun at your shower! Mine is coming up too!

Ok, we hit 34 weeks Wednesday! Estimated weight on ultrasound was 6 lbs. Doctor even showed me the layer of fat on his arm! But, my bp was high again, so I went for my 3rd visit to L&D in 12 days. This time, though, my doctor put me on Labetalol 100mg twice daily. Up until this point I have been scared to death of the medication. Wednesday I was actually happy. Within 30 minutes, my bp readings were already coming down, and this morning, my reading was the best it's been ever. Labs looked great, and we repeated a 24 hour urine. Still waiting on those results. Next milestone is to get through my doctor's appointment on Tuesday without a subsequent visit to L&D, and to make it to my baby shower next Saturday!

Hooray for more milestones! Isn't it amazing seeing those rolling movements!? I didn't feel much with DS, and this baby is a mover! So different.
I'm 35 weeks tomorrow! I can hardly believe it. I'm so grateful.

Thanks Sam! Holly, SO happy for you! That is an amazing feeling! Baby looked beautiful on biophysical profile yesterday. My BP at the MFM was 136/105, which is not even close to my highest BP ever. It isn't even the highest I have had in their office. But my appointment was with an MFM I had never seen before, and she flipped out. She called my doctor's office, and they were closed,and he was not on call. So, two doctors who don't know me decided I needed to go to L&D for observation. Of course, as soon as I got there, my BP's went back down to normal, and I got to leave in less than an hour. Thank God! Going back to the MFM next Friday and seeing a doctor I know, who is much older and wiser!

lol ok I will dance for you!! Wow what great news!!! This morning for the first time I actually saw my babies movements from the outside!!! To me this is a milestone because although I made it over 26 weeks with my first, I hardly ever felt a movement out of him the entire time certainly nothing I could see from the outside, its amazing! Please let us know how your appointment goes with your MFM!

Well, this little guy has surprised me once again! I have tried to rest and have chosen to simplify my life as much as possible. We hit 33 weeks yesterday, and today I had an appointment with my doctor. My blood pressure has gone back down to normal both at home and in the office, and my urine dip today in the office was clean! I have a biophysical profile with my MFM tomorrow, and my OB said that if things continue this well, he doesn't see why we can't go to 39 weeks. That is unless my MFM wants them to deliver sooner!!! SO excited! But not doing the happy dance. NO dancing!

Yes I know and watching one baby is certailnly work nevermind twins yikes!!! That IS work! I am a prenatal massage therapist which also is a physical job! Right before I found out I was pregnant we had been fostering. We had just given our 18 month old boy to a family that was able to take all 3 siblings. After that my husband and I both decided that since I am high risk we should take a break from fostering and really focus on mine and the babies health. I am so glad We did because honestly it just would have been too much now. It'd be one thing if we had children of our own of course but since we don't this is what we chose. Next step may be not working or really limiting work. It's hard and scary but I keep thinking in the end if we get to take our baby home it will all be so worth the sacrifices!

The not working thing is a big one for me too. I don't really work, work. But I babysit twins that are 2 yrs old. We had originally planned to have them gone from November 1st until after New Years, but adding an extra 4 weeks to that would be really hard. Especially at Christmas. I'm really trying to just let it go, and take it day by day trusting that everything will be ok, but it's hard.
