I hope this might be encouraging. My son's pregnancy showed severe growth restriction from 20 weeks, low fluid after 25, and at 27 we had absent diastolic flow. That's when I quickly developed severe pre-e & HELLP and we delivered. It was a long road, one I'd go through a hundred times if I had to though.

But this pregnancy has been totally different. I'm now 34 weeks, BP is 110/60, no protein issues, baby is in the 49% percentile at 5 lb 1 oz, and fluid and blood flow are perfect! I'm starting to accept the possibility that I could be healthy, having a normal size baby at term, and not have to quarantine her for a year to protect from respiratory illness. I can't imagine!
