I thought I did this... but I guess not!

How many weeks? 20 today!

Boy, girl, don't know? Girl

How's the bp? Good, I think it is a tad high, but it has been stable the whole time

How's the pregnancy going? Good, thank goodness!

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? Nothing really

What do you crave? It changes, for a couple weeks it was baked potatoes... nothing really right now. Pringles maybe?

How many weeks? 21 weeks tomorrow

Boy, girl, don't know? Boy :)

How's the bp? - doing GREAT on 200mg labetelol 2x day!!! Lower than it ever has been...

How's the pregnancy going? Actually it's going better than I ever would have expected. Thank you lovenox!!!

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? It kind of depends on the day - I normally love tomatos in the summer - but I haven't been able to eat many of them this summer.

What do you crave? - PIZZA!!! I could eat it for every meal lately... My family is sick of me suggesting it.

Boy, girl, don't know? Don't know, but can't wait to find out!

How's the bp? Holding steady with Labetalol in the 120's over 80's range.

How's the pregnancy going? Aside from a scare last week, not too bad- just a little uncomfortable and swollen.

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? Depends on the week- it seems to change all the time. Right now I don't want to eat (but normally LOVE) hummus.

What do you crave? Summer fruit (watermelon especially) and orange sherbet.

How many weeks? 19 tomorrow

Boy, girl, don't know? Don't know yet

How's the bp? OK. I'm on 200 mg Labetalol a day. in the 120's/60's best ever!

How's the pregnancy going? First trimester was worse then before, but I'm over all that now. Had a slightly abnormal result on my quad screen, and a high-ish 24 hr protein at 11 weeks, but it's back down now.

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? All my food weirdness is over with now :)

What do you crave? Nothing in particular

How many weeks? 13

Boy, girl, don't know? Won't know until September

How's the bp? 105/67. Where's my second trimester dip already?

How's the pregnancy going? So far, I've puked more in the 13th week than in the entire first three months combined. But other than that, great!

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? All dairy products, all candy products (including chocolate), my calcium supplement (any of them, and I'm aware of all of the options), most green vegetables especially if leafy, fruit in the morning. It's a miracle that I've gained any weight without any ice cream.

What do you crave? Crave? People crave stuff? I only have foods that don't turn my stomach on sight and those that do.

How's the pregnancy going? Not my best. Lots of contractions since 22 weeks, but not dilating past 1cm. Blood pressure climbing but labs still ok.

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? everything is ok now, but I had lots at the beginning
