How many weeks are you??

As I sit here and read so many of our stories and relive my anxieties over the past months, I'm so thankful for having made it this far... still pre-e free! What?!?! Who woulda thunk it. I'll be 33 weeks Monday. I'm kind of in a bit of shock as each day passes, even though we had some possible bumps. So... how many weeks are you? And, CONGRATS! :) :)

29 weeks today. It was about this time last pregnancy that my feet started swelling. I check them every morning. So far so good....fingers (and everything else) crossed. Feeling really grateful so far, but at the same time like I'm on pins and needles.

So glad to hear you're still pre-e free! I crave stories like that! All the percentages and risks and odds just scare me.

Only 17 weeks, here, so not even in the "dangerous" part yet.

2nd son, c-section at 37 weeks due to hypertension, born 1/15/13.

Just over 33 weeks! I'm a week passed my pre-e diagnosis from last time and a few days passed my loss milestone. It feels wonderful to be at this point, but at the same time I get so anxious as it gets closer! I will be induced just under 38 weeks... so just 4 1/2 more weeks to try to keep myself sane!!!

Congrats to everyone who has passed milestones, we can do it!

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!

Yay everyone!! My diagnosis and delivery occurred at the same time, 23 weeks so we've passed that milestone. Congrats everyone!

Petunia, is there any specific reason you're being induced?
