Well, things are still going well - although protein levels go up and down a bit the trend is definitly upwards - hit 595 last week, then down in the 400's Tuesday... another one tomorrow. So far blood work has not been overly remarkable although platelets seems to be on the lower side of normal (floating around 160). Oh well. BP has also trended very slowly upwards as it has been all along.. still not alarmng (high today was like 148/86).
Yes, we are happy to be at the magic 36 week mark. This means that we'll be delivering in our local hospital unless something really dramatic happens - then we'll deliver here and transport out I imagine, but that's a slim chance I'm sure. Our OB seems rather pleased that we made it this far, but there is still some concern. Regarding the growth - everything is in line for the most part (slightly large head) so she is not worried at this point - basically shrugged off any concern since things are relatively proportional and who can really get upset with 50th percentile anyway eh?
Looking forward to 10/5 - scheduled c-section (had two already, no option for voluntary VBAC).
Since I can't post without some sort of question... Question of the moment - anyone know what the criteria are for mag at delivery? If I remember Friday I'll ask our OB but looking for a hint ahead of time...
Still going (the energizer bunny pregnancy I think I'll call this one...)
