Thanks ladies! I've learned a TON of information from this board and I'm ecstatic to be PE free this far in my pregnancy. It took reading success stories like this on the board to finally convince us to "try again"...and now it looks like we may be one of those success stories to hopefully give others who are considering pregnancy after PE hope that a "normal" pregnancy is possible. I'm just all around happy and positive right now (after worrying and being paranoid for 8 months!). Thanks for your encouragement and support and I hope to update you soon with baby news!!

Week 37 Appointment Update

Postby kristen8843 » Wed May 16, 2007 02:39 pm

Well, I will be 37 weeks on Friday and this morning at my appointment, found out I am 50% effaced and 2 cm dialated. Baby is head down and ready to go! Doctor says we'll be having a May baby instead of a June bug, but said it could be anytime in the next two weeks. He told me to have my bag packed and be ready...he thinks it'll be sooner, rather than later. Blood pressure was excellent, 128/74 and still no PE. I've been having contractions on and off for the past few weeks, but they always go away when I lay down. I'm really looking forward to meeting this little guy!!
