Geraint, congratulations on impending fatherhood! You're doing a great job...becoming educated is the best thing we can do.

Another success story for you: My husband's aunt went on bedrest for preeclampsia with her triplets and delivered around 33-34 weeks. They're now almost-5-year-old beautiful, lively kids! (And half Welsh! [;)])

You will be in our thoughts - good luck to you all!

Seems ages since I last posted! Here's an update for you. Had our 28 week scan and check-up today. BP normal, a little swelling, but only a trace of protein. Doctors think everything's OK. Saw two little four-chambered hearts beating away! Will let you know how it goes from now on.
