Hi! We are due roughly the same time. I did Hypnobabies with my 2nd child (loved it!) and the other day decided to start listening to my pregnancy affirmations and other tracks, even though I won't re-start the course for awhile. I feel like I need to get my head on straight here. I'm on high-alert for pre-e problems of course, but at the same time I want to enjoy this (quite likely) last pregnancy and not be overly fearful. It is hard!
Feeling any kicks yet? Those early movements are the best!
DS born Dec. 2008 at 38.5w gestation. Mild PE diagnosed 3 hours before he was born
DD born Dec. 2010 at 40w1d. BP was slightly elevated since 37w, and climbed while in labor (started on my own). Severe PE diagnosed hours after DD born.
DD born Sept. 2013 at 38w. Induced (and I had to fight for it!) due to high blood pressure. No protein, but had brisk reflexes and clonus after delivery. Doc gave me a mild preeclampsia diagnosis anyway and said I'm likely to be a chronic hypertensive later in life.
