26 week update and I got my c-section date...

Baby is in the 70th percentile, I passed my diabetes test (117, yay me!). I have another u/s at 30 weeks, and I start my non stress tests weekly at 32 weeks. If all keeps going well, praying it does, I will have my lil guy on 11/22 at 36 weeks (by there date, 36 weeks 5 days by my date). The mfm feels there is no point in trying to make me go any further then that. I'll get injections for lung development. Figures crossed I make it that far and avoid PE all together. They said my blood flow still looks really good, my blood pressure at the docs office was 128/86 which is higher then it is at home, at home it has been under 110/70 but the docs office always makes me a little nervous. No protein, thank God.

Wonderful pictures! And sounds like a great day for a birthday :)
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.
