New milestone for me! Yesterday I was 25 weeks, which is the first time I had a high blood-pressure reading and was diagnosed with PE in my last pregnancy. By contrast, everything is fine at the moment (my BP this morning was 104/65).
We had a bit of a scare over Thanksgiving—there were 3 days when my BP was going up 5-10 points a day—but it came back down, and my MFM agreed that it could well have just been the stress of having my mother and mother-in-law visiting at the same time, combined with major internal panic once it had started to go up. They did an ultrasound and all sorts of blood tests, and everything looks fine, so I'm feeling pretty positive about it all.
Only another 5 days to the point where I delivered last time! Fingers crossed...
Hope everyone else is doing as well. *hugs*
