Wow. I didn't realize how similar our situations really are! My due date is March 19th.

When I was hospitalized over Christmas the head peri said I wouldn't be pregnant much past 34/35 weeks. But when I was discharged they reminded me that everything with pregnancy (as with life in general I guess) is variable.

Prayers, thoughts and hugs for you - to stay pregnant only if healthy and that your delivery is simple, with a babe to hold in your arms.

(((hugs)))

Yay for more time in the tummy. I hope you reach your goal. But if you dont't, you're in a really good place. Yay to no grocery shopping! I was doing it with dh via cell phone yesterday. "No, no, not the pineapple rings, pineapple chunks!" I'm happy things are so far so good for you!

Take a good care of yourself now, and keep watching those BP's!

Also, keep us updated.

Thanks everyone!
I am home from the Dr now. He said as long as my BP stays at 160/110 or below, (assuming all other factors are ok) they will let me stay preg.
For now- I get to stay at home, and do essential duties only. No more grocery store trips even.
I need to keep taking my bp at home and if the # are not good, then I get head back to the office to see him or after hours I head over to L/D.
Our goal is still 38 1-2 weeks at this point- March 12.

Definitely sent! At 34 weeks you are at an awesome place even if something is going wonky right now. Let us know what they say if you can.

Thinking of you!
