Huge milestone!!

Just wanted to share... I've made it to 30 weeks! I can't believe it! My DD was born at 29w1d. This is such a huge milestone for me.
I also had the ultrasound 2 weeks ago to check for signs of placenta accreta and the MFM said everything looked good. She weighed in at 2lbs 11oz (what DD weighed at birth!)
I had my regular OB check up yesterday and everything looks great. BP at home is usually 110's/60's and no protein. I collected a 24 hour urine but the results are still pending. No swelling either! It's so amazing.
They actually scheduled my c-section! for August 12th at 37 weeks. :) I also start biweekly NST's this week and I have another growth scan scheduled for July 9th. So, everything is on track! I'm hoping it stays that way. :D

Yay :) So happy to hear that all looks good. Doesn't it feel great to reach a milestone, and such an important one, without any issues?
