YAY! Happy to hear things are going well for you. I think too the injections are bearable, anything to help our little ones is SO worth it anyway. Keep with your updates!

19 weeks tomorrow... can't wait for my 20 week scan with the peri at 20.5 weeks... hoping it is going to show good blood flow. My blood pressure has been nice and low. Most days under 100/70... normally in the 90's/50's or 60's..... hoping and praying it keeps staying low. I didn't track my bp with Veronica so I don't know if it is a good sign or not. I have been trying to get into the pool for about 2 to 3 hours a night (to relax and get a little light exercise). Been trying to stay away from highly processed foods, with Veronica's pregnancy I ate a LOT of take out... don't know if that was part of the problem or not. Getting used to lovenex injections, they aren't nearly as bad as I thought they would be. I only messed up once recently and gave myself a nice bruise when I injected it. Trying to take some deep breaths and hoping week 25/26 flies by very uneventful. I'm sure those of you that had preeclampsia early and got pregnant again can relate!
