That sounds like a good plan. I think it is also a fairly typical one for mamas in our situations. (((hugs)))

Sounds similar to what they are planning for me. I'll be seeing one of my doctors every week (OB alternating with MFM) after 30 weeks and will go through NSTs (have not had those before) and ultrasounds to check blood flow, etc.

Your schedule is quite similar to what mine was. At 32 weeks, I started ultrasounds every two weeks just because I had PE so early. They had planned to do BPPs at week 38 but I went into labor at 37 and 4, so I didn't ever have to do BPPs. Sounds like your on your way. Hope you're feeling well. NSTs were no big deal.

Typical Treatments in the 3rd Tri.

Starting at 28 weeks (next week for me) I will have ultra sounds at 28, 32, & 36 weeks. Starting at 32 weeks I will have weekly NSTs. I had Class 1 HELLP at 33.5 days with symptoms starting at about 30 weeks. What types of schedules for visits have other folks been on in subsequent pregnancies after PE and HELLP?
