So glad the appointment went well and the NP was understanding. I'm crossing all crossables you make all your milestones! One day and one milestone at a time.

While off work I do recommend keeping yourself a clear schedule. I was on modified bedrest for 7 weeks with our 2nd, and I might have gone insane if not for keeping to a to do list of things to get done, and a time to do them by. It really helped to keep my brain moving forward and out of panic mode too.

Keep the updates coming!

This week hubby is home with me, so that is making it much better. I really like to play online games so that is keeping me a little busy and I have been napping a lot. I'm going to ask my husband to bring up my supplies to make jewelry, I used to love making jewelry but haven't had time so that will keep me busy!

Hope you are doing well!
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.

I'm hanging in!!!! I have an ultrasound and an OBGYN appointment this week so I'm really really hoping they both go well. Lil guy was 1 pound 4 oz at last appointment 4 weeks ago, so I'm really hoping that he is in the two pounds range and still measuring a little big.
