Well, I'm 38 wks and 1 day along. I almost made this pregnancy complete without incident of PE but not to be so. I called doctor a couple times this week in the past couple days because I have noticed my evening pressures climbing to a slight degree. Today it was confirmed that I was spilling 2+ protein. I've had a slight headache but then again, the weather has not been great for us with allergies lately. I am officially on bedrest as of last night and will be induced on Monday May 9th in the evening. This means little boy will most likely be born May 9th or May 10th. I'm not in the danger zone persay but I do know that this dysfunction, disease, beast can turn on a dime. This is my 3rd time to have PE and I am just very thankful I have made it further with this boy than I have ever gone. I had a BPP today and it showed that he is healthy and fine. He was sleeping but practicing his breathing. I could not have made it this far without the treatments, thoughts and prayers offered up by all of whom I know.
I pray my story has still been inspiring to those who wish to try and get pregnant again after loss. It can be done. I've been extremely protective of this pregnancy seeing it is a boy due to the loss of my other son in 2002. I do not regret my decisions to try try again and pray that I make it through this next weekend without incident.
I will continue to keep log of my progress. And as soon as I get a picture of this precious little one, I will have it posted. :-)
God Bless all the mommies out there and Happy Mother's Day in advance!
