I just wanted to share- I've made it to 33 weeks!! That's 4 more weeks than with DD1!
I'm over the moon.
Everything has gone well so far. BP is normal, no swelling except for minor ankle swelling after standing too much and no protein in urine- last 24 hour was 155, baseline was 130. I did have a scare at 30 weeks when my grandmother passed with some high BP and I got steroids for baby's lungs just in case. But everything has been fine since then. NSTs are great. Growth scan at 32 weeks showed she was 4lbs 2oz
I have a scheduled c-section date- August 12th. So, less than 4 weeks!!
I SO hope I make it to that date. My doctors can't believe I've done so well. Here's hoping it continues to go well!!
