I'm very happy to share that I had a great OB visit yesterday! I had been a little worried because at my nutrionist 10 days ago, She discovered I had gained 7lbs in 1 month (not related to overeating), and my pressures were jumping around after coming off my atenolol. My OB immediately called in an Rx for Aldomet. Yesterday, I was 3 lbs. LESS (so my doc seemed to agree I had been swelling -- a total wt. gain of 4 lbs is appropriate), my pressure was 120/70, no protein and good results on the AFP test! After this month, I will be seeing my OB every 2 weeks, since we're approaching the PE watch -and -see phase. I just hope the aldomet keeps working, since it didn't work too great with baby #1...

Oh, Lauren,

I'm so happy your AFP came back good. I've been thinking about you since you posted the question! Way to go!

Thanks for thinking of me, Ileana. I was stressed over that test...Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed for the Level 2 Ultrasound I'm having Monday...Hopefully the blood flow, amnio fluid, etc. and of course, the baby itself will be just fine. BTW, I was truly touched by your husband's sentiment in the Ask the Experienced forum. I am thinking of you both in what I am sure is a very difficult anniversary for you. HUGS to you both!!!
