Who's past the dreaded 20 weeks???

Postby mychaelelaine » Fri Jun 01, 2012 11:06 pm

At least dreaded for me! Hey guys, hope everyone is doing awesome, low blood pressure and no protein in the urine. How's everyone?? So far, I'm feeling awesome. I had carpal tunnel syndrome with my sleeping angel delivered in October. None this time. I'm hoping that's a sign that this pregnancy will be problem free.

Congrats! Glad to hear everything is going well! We're passed the 20 week mark... and for us our big d-days the 29 and 30 week mark where we got bad news with both previous pregnancies. Next goal 35 weeks, which coincides with our daughter's 4th birthday. I do NOT want another June baby. June is her month. :)

I am 18.5 weeks - approaching that 20 week ultra sound with blood doppler readings that I dread so much. Fingers cross that with my blood thinners on board this time we'll have a good reading - next goal 24 weeks with no protein or high bp.
Baby steps!! ;)

I just made it to 21 weeks today! So far I'm feeling great...no back pain like last time, no issues with my hands like last time... and I think most encouraging is my wedding ring came off right about 20 weeks last time... as of now it's still on and not snug at all *knock on wood*. We have our doppler study and a 24 hour urine in a week... hopefully we can continue to sneak further and further away from 20 weeks without incident!

Our first child, Peyton Mark, was born sleeping at 33 weeks on Oct. 25th 2011. Developed pre-e at 32 weeks.
Pregnant again with what I pray is our rainbow baby, due Oct. 14th 2012. Will induce labor no later than 38 weeks if we make it that far!

Happy to hear you guys are doing awesome so far! We all have to keep taking it one day at a time I suppose. Petunia, I haven't had any significant issues with my hands either. By this time, I was in tears with carpal tunnel. I have noticed my right hand starting to fall asleep if the blood flow isn't good but i'll take it any day over carpal tunnel. Thoughts and prayers to everyone!

It's so great to hear from everyone happily cooking along! I'm crossing all crossables for whammy free pregnancies for all of us and big fat healthy full termers!

We hit a lil' bit of a bump today at our 32 week scan... polyhydramnois again! We've so far had it with each pregnancy... our first very severe and second and this one mild. I'm to continue to watch my diet as the doc was thinking it might be related to our glucose intolerance (failed 1hr, passed 3/4 on the three hour). We also got confirmation that we wouldn't be allowed to go past 37 weeks... and the MFM wasn't too sure we'd see 36 weeks, but I look forward to proving her wrong! ;)

Ugh! Im sorry, I'm certain that is not news you wanted to hear. I'm praying for you and crossing fingers! I wish us all healthy pregnancies with big chunky adorable babies.
