I am so glad that I have finally made it to 99 days till my due date. Wasn't sure I would make it. I progressively feel worse as time goes on. BP is slowly creeping up and legs have blossomed with some lovely edema. I am planning on asking my dr to write me a note to restrict my days at work down to three a week. hope everyone is having a good day.

Yay for double digits and viability. I noticed lots of growth after week 25 too. Try to take it easy as much as you can. Are you on your feet a lot at work? I get some edema occasionally in my legs/feet, but it comes and goes with active days. Hang in there momma!

actually not on my feet at all at work. Sit at a desk and usually work on homework. I guess the sitting with my feet down are causing the swelling.

Great news!

I think sitting down with feet down is just as bad! It was for me, anyway. Can you prop your feet up at all?
