33 weeks!!

Postby ellemoon » Wed Jul 17, 2013 10:03 am

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 :D 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!! :)

Wonderful to hear!
DS born Dec. 2008 at 38.5w gestation. Mild PE diagnosed 3 hours before he was born
DD born Dec. 2010 at 40w1d. BP was slightly elevated since 37w, and climbed while in labor (started on my own). Severe PE diagnosed hours after DD born.
DD born Sept. 2013 at 38w. Induced (and I had to fight for it!) due to high blood pressure. No protein, but had brisk reflexes and clonus after delivery. Doc gave me a mild preeclampsia diagnosis anyway and said I'm likely to be a chronic hypertensive later in life.
