Wow, thanks for the update, Lori. That's AMAZING news!!!! Incredible growth for Madi!!! My DD didn't reach that size until after 34 weeks. I'm sorry Cassie's BP is still not cooperating, but it sounds like the babies are doing great despite that, and how wonderful that the doctor is still willing to wait a bit longer. Way to go!!!!

WE GOT FAT BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOO HOOO!!!! Cassie called me in tears. BOTH of the girls are bigger than Stephen & Kaitlyn were!! Madison is at 2lbs 9oz!!! (last growth scan was 1lb 13oz)....and here's the BIG one! Ms. Baby B aka Brooke is 4lbs 4oz!!!!!! WOO HOO!! So for the not so great news is that now their size difference is 1lb 11oz or 39%..but the good news is that Madi is growing. BP was horrendous during the night 150/100 range so they started her on Labelatol (sp??) Already making a difference as last bp reading was 116/65! Dr she doesn't like came in and told her that there was no change in the plan..she was staying put so Cassie feels relieved about that. All in all I think this is a pretty good update!!!!

Lori - you are so good about the updates. I feel so badly for Cassie, like the situation isn't tough enough, then to have to deal with a frustrating doc.........let her know we continue to think and pray for both she and the girls.

Nothing much to report. Contractions were quiet most of the day but are starting up again. BP is still sporting some high readings. The last one was halfway ok...seem to be fairly labile. Tomorrow she has BPP w/growth scan. Her dr last week said that if Madi hadn't grown any or had grown very slightly that would be cause for delivery but the dr that she doesn't care for is on call this week and she didn't even want to put Cassie in the hospital...soooo she says this should be a fun (NOT!) week.

I'll update in the a.m. after her testing.

Thought about you all weekend kido. Glad we are still waiting and seeing. Carly was looking at your picture and pointed to kaitlyn and asked if that was her sister and I said yes.
