Well yesterday was a big day for us. In the morning I went for my glucose test. Even though I have heard how yuck it is etc. I was so happy to be taking it because I have never gotten far enough to have one. So I happily chugged down the sweet stuff.

The late afternoon was our growth scan ultrasound/Bpp. I was so worried and nervous because the last 2 we had she was dropping in percentiles, at 22 weeks she was 30th and at 25 weeks 27th. So here we are at 28 weeks. To my surprise she went from 1lb 6oz at 25 weeks to 2lbs 9oz now at 28 weeks AND she is now in the 53rd percentile!! I was so planning on bad news I didn't believe and asked the doctor twice what her weight and percentile was. So far my pressures have been great and have not had to start any meds other then the Lda and extra calcium.

I realize I don't know what tomorrow may bring, but oh am I hopeful and happy today ! I am hoping for my next milestone of 30 weeks. Thanks for reading :D

Thank you, that made me cry too, I am so scared but so hopeful to maybe have the chance to take this baby home with us. My life is in days and numbers. Each day , each week that passes I just pray for another and another. Thank you so much for all your support and well wishes. Having people that understand the terror of it all makes me remember I am not alone xoxo
