Just about at the finish line

I made it to 37 weeks, and 38 hits tomorrow! Still feeling good, BP still under 120/80. I head to the hospital on Friday morning for a c-section (getting the tubes done too - so done having tykes!). Really happy this pregnancy has been so uneventful unlike last time. Thanks to everyone on these boards - it's nice to chat with people who know what the PE/HELLP journey is like. Best of luck to all the expectant moms on here!

I will post a pic and a name once she arrives!
