I know it has been awhile since I have posted any updates on my pregnancy. Not sure if everyone remembers but I delivered my first baby Olivia at 23 weeks and 6 days because of severe PE. I am happy to say that I have made it to one of my major milestones (27 weeks)! My bloodpressure is relatively good and my doctor says "I am coming along beautifully". Now I know this can change in an instant with PE and I am almost as surprised with my blood pressure readings as my OB.... but she hasn't had to increase or adjust any of my medications yet! I am praying that she doesn't have to either. I am trying to live in the momement and at the moment things couldn't be going any better. I just pray that things continue to go smoothly.

We do know that we are having another little girl whom we have named Emma Elizabeth Anne. She is very active and is growing right on target!
We could not be any happier right now.

So happy to hear that you have reached a major milestone without any complications! And what a beautiful name you have picked!
