First of all, hello everyone, I am new to the forum. I had severe PE back in 2001, have a healthy 7-yr old son, Kyle, who was born at 27 wks / 2 lbs., and I am pregnant with his little bro or sis. Praying for a healthy pregnancy this time around!

How many weeks? 14 weeks

Boy/Girl/Surprise? Hopefully, a girl, so we have one of each. Either way will be fine. My son wants a "crazy boy, just like him"!!

How is the pregnancy going? Been sick & exhausted for 3 months...nausea, acid reflux (new this time), and extreme fatigue (well, I am much older this time!). I'm ready for the "ickies" to end, but am feeling grateful and excited!!

BP? 120/72...not bad. Seeing Peri or N.P. every two weeks.

Names picked out? Girl: maybe Katelyn or Kaelyn - Boy: stumped!

Healthy snack suggestion? Fresh fruit, dried apricots w/cashews or almonds. (Craving Frosted Flakes, though!)

weirdest advice you've gotten while pregnant? not sure...memory is failing me as usual!

How many weeks? 10 1/2

Boy/girl/surprise? Don't know yet -- thinking it's a boy again

How is the pregnancy going? Had a really rough week last week but had two really wonderful days this week before the m/s and vomiting kicked in again ... maybe a sign of good things to come?
Also, belly's been growing ... always a good thing!

BP? 120's/70's

Names picked out? We have names, but still a lot of time to change our minds

Healthy snack suggestion? plain yogurt with granola on top

Weirdest advice you've gotten while pregnant? When I was pregnant with my son, I was told by an aquaintance that for the last six weeks of my pregnancy I should do manual "perineal stretching" daily to prevent an episiotomy (stretch it til it burns!) Don't know if it works, never tried it, and he was a month early anyway!

How many weeks? 11, 12 on Tuesday

Boy/Girl/Surprise? Too soon to tell.

How is the pregnancy going? Totally different from last time. No horrible cramps, no food adverstions, deblitating fatigue...this one is totally better.

BP? Iffy. Some MOST days it's around 128/70's. Late at night it's lower. Stressful days its in the 140's/80s. I have to baby it, exercise, right food, less salt to keep it happy.

Names picked out? A few.

Healthy snack suggestion? Dark Chocolate with a handful of almonds.

How many weeks? 31 Weeks. So glad to reach to this point and want to go full term

Boy/Girl/Surprise? Surprise for me

How is the pregnancy going? So far good. BPs are good. All the PE parameters look good. Praying that it stays that way until end. I would have felt better if I did not have GD. But I think GD is lesser of two evils. I would prefer GD to PE anytime.

BP? Can't be better. 100s/60s. Crossing all my fingers

Names picked out? None so far

Healthy snack suggestion? multigrain crackers with cheese. Avavacado with salt and pepper

weirdest advice you've gotten while pregnant? None yet
