Wow it's so great you've stayed healthy for this long! I will be sending light and good thoughts - and really really hope you won't get any symptoms even around delivery or post-partum.


April 14 is only a week away!

First of all, congratulations on reaching 38 weeks - and that you are still healthy! I don't know how fast preeclampsia can actually move, but with your numbers at 38 weeks, it doesn't seem very likely that you are going to develop preeclampsia in this pregnancy, does it? But I know that it is impossible to stop worrying. Anyway, I wish you all the best and hope that everything will go as smooth as possible for you :-)

Amy, I'm thinking of you and sending you lots of positive vibes for a good labor and no PE or HELLP after. Your dr sounds terific, and it's amazing you're at 38 weeks with no symptoms!

38 weeks is the place to be around here, huh? From the looks of it, you're in very good company! Hope your little guy makes his appearance very, very soon!

Today was my 38 week appt. I was barely 2 and 50%. Dr. went ahead and stripped my membranes. He said he would wait for 40 weeks...but didn't want to since my risk of pe and hellps would only increase. I was glad...didn't want to chance that, plus I'm ready. BP was fine, no protein, platelets last Monday were 162,000...didn't check them today. I will be induced Tuesday, April 14th if nothing happens before then. I am getting NERVOUS now...for labor and for still not getting pe or Hellps...I was dx until delivery last time...that's why it scares me so now! Send up some prayers please!
