Hi Pugmommy,
On a light note. I am also a pugmommy to 2 beautful pug boys, Bubba and Zeke, and a real mommy to my beautiful daughter Bella. Interestingly enough my name is also Jennifer. Just a little strange. I was so disappointed growing up that I has such a common name that I was convinced I would give my daughter a name that was uncommon. I have since met quite a few baby Bella's but i don't care b/c I still love the name. Does your daughter have a middle name? Glad to hear things are going okay so far.

Congratulations all.. and never underestimate the influence of weather extremes, especially when the power goes out! I delivered Lucy (early) when the crop of "icestorm 2000" babies were being harvested. One night/early morning I rang the bell a bunch of times and nobody came. Eventually one wrecked-looking L&D nurse stuck her head around the door and asked how urgent my need was. They were just finishing their 6th C-section of the night and that was on top of vaginal deliveries!!!!

Congratulations Barbra!
There must have been something in the air or water last Sept., because I know like 5 others due at the same time!

I'm in MD and we kid that it must have been due to the blackout during hurricaine Isabel;)

Good luck! We should keep each other posted!
Love, J

Good luck! We have the exact same due date - June 24th! I also had a sudden onset of preec at 36 weeks when carrying my 2nd. This is my third and I'm on Labetalol for PIH which started at 20 wks. Although I already have some bp issues, I feel good about this preg too. This site will definitely help you overcome some fears you may have!

Thanks for the warm reception!

Suzanne, our stories sound very similar. I love hearing that your 2nd went so well!
I am so sorry about the trouble you are experiencing this time. I hope the new meds work. Hopefully once everything gets straightened out, you can relax and enjoy the pregnancy.(a feat that is diffcult for Mom's like us:)

Thanks to you other Mom's. I feel very welcome here already.

Love,~Jennifer

Hello and Welcome! Your first pregnancy sounds much like my first one. My son was born at 32 weeks after about 2 weeks of severe PE. That was 10 years ago. He was in the hospital for 19 days---he was born weighing 3.5 pounds. My second pregnancy was almost perfect!! No PE, my second son was born full term weighing 8lb 2 oz. That's the good news---however, I am now 13 weeks into my 3rd pregnancy and am having blood pressure problems and was on Aldomet, had a rare and serious side effect from that and am now on Labetoral (don't know if I am spelling that right!). So I guess I am saying it's very hard to say what will happen with a pregnancy after one affected by PE!! But I wish you all the best, and will be eager to hear how things are going. It's WONDERFUL you are at 22 weeks and feeling good!!

Suzanne (37) and DH Tony (41) + William (9, severe PE, born at 32 weeks) and Freddy (6, fairly typical pregnancy) and Baby (due approx. 8/26/04!)
