Just wanted to give an update! I'm 34 weeks on Friday and am doing well!! I'm getting an ultrasound to check growth, fluid levels, and/or blood flow every 2 weeks and having a NST every week. Baby boy is moving well and things look completely normal. He is average size. So I'm more and more confident that I'll make it to 39 weeks. They will induce me at that time if things stay normal. They don't want me to go past 39 weeks.
My blood pressure has been around 110/80 for the last couple months and I'm on the lowest dose of BP meds possible. My kidneys are stable.
