Congrats Holly...I am sure you will reach your goal. It is really neat that you are not gaining weight just the baby. that's what we want, right? Less pounds to shed later on...

33 week Peri and OB appt

Postby mommy1st » Wed Nov 12, 2008 02:02 pm

I made it to 33 weeks all nice and safe, woo hoo!!! Today is the day when I had Brade, 33 weeks and 1 day!
Anyways, I went to my Peri appt. yesterday and baby is looking good, she now weighs 4lbs 14oz!!! She is in the 50th percentile I just can't get over it because Braden was 3lbs 11.5 oz when he was born so she is well past Braden's weight which makes me happy:) My NST at the peri's went fine and NO protein in my urine, YES!!! My Peri thinks that with how everything has been going that preeclampsia is not in my system as of yet and if it keeps up like this it could stay that way so the 18th could be happening for us in December!! Oh I didn't gain any weight in 5 weeks and my BP was a little up but within the normal limits so he was okay with that especially since it's really good at home. I am seeing my Peri everyweek now for NST, US, and vitals.

I went to my OB this morning and my BP was really good for being there, it's always high at my OB's for some odd reason, it was 132/78! I've lost weight too which in nice, I'm not even where I was 4 weeks ago in weight so that is really nice to be at a steady weight and not gaining tons it's just her who's doing all the gaining:) My OB was really happy with everything and said if I can make it to 36 weeks we are golden because anything beyond that the babies do fine. He said as long as my BP dosn't act up then the 18th could happen. I see him in 2 more weeks and then after that everyweek and I am doing the groupB strep at the next appt. I never got this far in the pregnancy last time so it's all new to me. He asked how my sugars were at home and I said fine so he was happy and that if they start to go up to call him and that sometimes this is where they can go up in the pregnacy but so far they are good!

So, as you can tell Í am very happy to be 33weeks and 1 day pregnant, thought it would never happen especially being DX with PIH at 21 weeks!
