Yay! Glad you two are doing well and your doctor is staying on top of things. I sure hope you kept the tags for those preemie clothes because you probably won't need them! June 12th will be here before you know it. How many weeks are you now?

I have newborn clothes packed in my bag for tomorow's last appointment, just in case, and it feels so weird. I don't think I'll really believe I'm having a baby that large until I see her.

I'm glad things looked good today and that the meds are allowing you to hold steady. Come on another 7 weeks! :)

Our growth scan is next Tuesday- hoping for the same good news. Looks like there are three of us all due a few days apart- keeping all crossables crossed we all get to bring home big fat full term babies!! :)

Well I was kinda doubting my dr as I have had two previous bad experiences but he must be doing something ok. My urine is currently dipping negative for protein, which I know is not as for sure as a 24 hour urine but it makes me happy. My growth scan today had baby measuring at 3lbs, 10oz which is bigger than what my daughter was at birth. I bought some preemie clothes but may need to go back to the store to get a couple of regular sized outfits. My bp has been holding pretty steady at 130/140 over 80-90's on the labetelol. Hope it continues for another 7 weeks until my scheduled c section date on july 19th. If I at least make it to june 12th I would get to stay in town as we only have a level 2 nicu here.

With the management of this pregnancy being so much better it does make me wonder if the outcome would have been different last time if the dr had listened to me about my bp readings being higher but can't change that now. Hope everyone is having a good week.
