Thanks everyone for the encouragment! I go back to dr's on Tuesday for routine check- peri is 1/6/04. Happy Holidays to everyone! We have a busy weekend , gotta find that time to rest![:)] Also, loved the 'portrait' Catherine )LOL! And yes, I'm 'peeking' at my arteries, but it's hard to do standing up, I've been at our outpatient center and no other tech to scan me. I've cut down though- there should be a 12step program for pregnant ultrasound technologists. It could be an addiction....

[:D]Update: 28 weeks and still going good! Peri appt showed my uterine artery doppler as still abnormal(elevated), but consistent, no worse. Baby is growing perfectly on schedule(exact measurements with my LMP) I'm amazed!. BP's the usual-140/90's range, which has been my usual for years. Today I did the glucola test(not as bad as i expected since 8 yrs ago it was horrible), and had the pre-e labs and 24hr. urine. Peri said we will probably do those labs and urine every 4 weeks. I go back to peri at 32 weeks since I can watch my fluid levels myself at work. That's it for now!

Wow Tanya, you really are moving now!! I can't believe that you are already at 28 weeks. I hope that the picture stays stable for at least another couple of months.

Best wishes

Thanks for the support everyone! 29 weeks today- my bp's have been great for me this week(highest was 140/85). The pre-e labs were all normal- HOWEVER- had a surprise when the dr called and told me I failed the glucola screen. Never happened to me before. So i did the 3hr tolerance test on friday, and go to dr's on Tuesday(1/20). Now i'm reading up on gestational diabetes and kind of joking about the fact it could just be another ailment to check off with this pregancy. I'll find out Tuesday.
my dr is seeing me every 2 weeks and said in February it might be every week, we'll see.
Time to go join the boys watching football-GO EAGLES!
