How many weeks? 28w 5days

Boy, girl, don't know? Another boy.. looks like boys rule this year !

How's the bp? So far so good ! 120/70-80 ish since hitting the 3rd trimester.

How's the pregnancy going? Great! My little man is measuring 4 weeks ahead of schedule last week at my 28 week visit I was measuring 32 weeks ! Super excited about that.. little worried about the trace protein that showed up last week though.

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? It's still a no for fried chicken, couldn't tolerate with my first son and never ate it again also this pregnancy I can't even smell it with out gagging !

What do you crave? I too want to eat EVERYTHING in sight ! Which is a big change from the 1st and 2nd trimester when I lost 21 lbs due to morning sickness.

How many weeks? 22 today

Boy, girl, don't know? Boy!

How's the bp? It is great. No problems. I am on a preventative 25mg atenolol daily but it is just making it even lower.

How's the pregnancy going? Good. I have high cardiac output and I go back next week to retest and also a growth ultrasound. Hopefully all goes well then.

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? Nothing now. I'm even starting to want coffee again.

What do you crave? Changes daily it seems. Sweets are big this pregnancy.

How many weeks? 34!!!

Boy, girl, don't know? Boy

How's the bp? It's pretty good. At home it runs around 116/70 and at the doctor's office it runs around 140/78. So really good for me.

How's the pregnancy going? Great! I can't believe I have made it this far! I'm getting nervous and excited about the birth.

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? I want to eat EVERYTHING right now and lots of it! LOL

What do you crave? mexican food

How many weeks? 35w 2d (also more pregnant then I have ever been)

Boy, girl, don't know? Boy!

How's the bp? Great haven't had any issues at all!

How's the pregnancy going? Very good, I can't believe I am 35wks and that this pregnancy has been going so smoothly, I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. I might actually stop worrying when I hit 36w next week.

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? Nothing so far, though certain food smells bugged me in the beginning. Nothing seems to bother me too much right now.

What do you crave? Changes all the time, for a while it was seafood/shrimp, lately it's been salad's, at least the salad craving is more healthy then when I was craving Peanut Buster Parfaits from Dairy Queen for like a week.

Yay, thanks Heather! This may be my last check-in so I'm glad not to miss it. :-)

How many weeks? 34 w 5 d (and more pregnant than ever before - whoohoo!)

Boy, girl, don't know? second baby girl, Helena Rose

How's the bp? not great... around 130/90 lying, 140/100 and over sitting :-(

How's the pregnancy going? well, I'm grateful to be at almost 35 weeks, stable despite mild PE and not sicker; but the last 5-6 weeks have been tough and for now I'm just glad to get through every new day. I can't wait to hold baby Helena safely in my arms and then we're done! No more PE pregnancies!!!

What can you not tolerate eating (aversions)? NO aversions at the moment (though I had many in the beginning... strange?)

What do you crave? everything I can't eat on my GD diet... I even dream at night of eating chocolate or chocolate ice cream and baking my favorite cakes ... ugh!!
