26 week growth and dopplers

Postby julieb » Thu Dec 06, 2012 07:42 pm

At this point with DS I had already been hospitalized, he was only in the 10th% and I had low fluid and horrible dopplers but this time around things are looking really good at this point! My BP is behaving and baby is doing great. Baby weighed in at 2lbs 3oz which is the 61st%!! Blood flow and fluid looked great and so did my placenta. I am going back every 2 weeks to check growth now and seeing my OB every 2 weeks so I am checking in every week with someone. I can't believe I am 26 weeks already, this pregnancy is flying by and I am so thankful that baby and I are still healthy. I really want to make it to visit my parents about 1 1/2 hour drive from us for Christmas and I will hit 28w6d (when DS was born) a few days before Christmas so those are my next milestones but they are so close already! I know PE can come on suddenly so I am on the lookout for my BP to change dramatically at any point like it did with DS, but in the meantime I am trying to enjoy this pregnancy! I hope that everyone else who is due in March is doing well!

Congratulations! I know how you feel: at this point in my last pregnancy I was already in the hospital, but this time so far (apart from one spike at Thanksgiving) everything's been going very smoothly. I'll be 28 weeks the day after Christmas, so that's the big milestone I'm aiming for! Good luck to us all!
