Ok, we hit 34 weeks Wednesday! Estimated weight on ultrasound was 6 lbs. Doctor even showed me the layer of fat on his arm! But, my bp was high again, so I went for my 3rd visit to L&D in 12 days. This time, though, my doctor put me on Labetalol 100mg twice daily. Up until this point I have been scared to death of the medication. Wednesday I was actually happy. Within 30 minutes, my bp readings were already coming down, and this morning, my reading was the best it's been ever. Labs looked great, and we repeated a 24 hour urine. Still waiting on those results. Next milestone is to get through my doctor's appointment on Tuesday without a subsequent visit to L&D, and to make it to my baby shower next Saturday!
