28w and things are looking good!

I'm very happy about this 28-week mark that I'm at today. Wanted to share, I passed my glucose tolerance test (the 1-hour one) with a squeaking by there! I was borderline pass/fail with my first two kids, so having this healthy margin makes me feel really good.

Also, I'm measuring at 28w for fundal height. I was measuring small with both of my other kids by this point, so glad that's on track now, too.

My BP was excellent at my checkup, too. YAY!

Still no idea if I'll get pre-e again, but I'm reassured by those things going my way so far!
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.
