How far along are you now? 33 weeks!

How's it going BP and other health wise? My pre-preg BP is around 85/60 and the last couple appts its been running 115/75 so not too bad just keep an eye on it to see if it gets worse or stays the same. Kind of a waiting game I guess. Ugh!

Anxiety level? Moderate. It was a little bit higher the last week or two but I'm trying to enjoy the last weeks of my pregnancy and I really like the dr I've had my last 2 appointments with so everything seems to be going well as far as that is concerned.

Free Range, Modified Bed Rest or Strict Bed Rest? Still modified bed rest. I can get up and move around or go to the store but I'm supposed to be resting as much as possible. Espeically when I start to get dizzy or whatever.

Cravings? Cereal & sweets. I could eat candy and junk food all day. W/ my daughter all I wanted was meat! LOL

Do you have any pets? No but I would like to get a doggie or a kitten soon. Maybe start of with a kitty and go from there after the baby comes.

Favorite TV show? Biggest loser, greys anatomy, I like desperate housewifes too but I don't watch it regularly and then get very lost! LOL

So far so good..BP has been pretty good and my last ultrasound looked good, I go back in a week for growth and dopplers.
Anxiety level?
Pretty high. I was already having high BP and was on bedrest with DS so I am a nervous wreck and I almost cry with relief every time I take my BP and it is okay. Who know what will happen if things start to go wrong!
Free Range, Modified Bed Rest or Strict Bed Rest?
Free Range, for now but when DS naps I make sure to rest as much as possible and DH has taken over some of the cleaning.
Cravings?
Strawberry Milkshakes and fountain Root Beer.
Do you have any pets?
Nope
Favorite TV show?
I like a lot of shows and pretty much anything on TLC or Discovery Health.

Oh - I am watching Desperate Housewives on re-run and definitely getting addicted! The hubby teases me since I used to be so gung-ho on working and always on-call and now the most complex task I do is set-up my DVR recordings for the week!! I have been advised to get Netflix so I can watch Heroes too!

27w2d

How's it going BP and other health wise?
Since last week, my bp has started hovering pretty close to 130/90, after being at or below 120/80 for the entire pregnancy. As of last Monday, no protein in urine, no IUGR (little man was actually measuring in the 90th percentile for size at 26w, 2lb and 3oz.)

Getting higher, since my BP is staying pretty high. Hopefully my Dr. can reassure me at my appointment next Monday.

Free range (for now at least).

Cravings?
Orange pop.

Do you have any pets?
A yorkie named Riley.

Favorite TV show?
Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice.

How far along are you now? 26 weeks + 4 days

How's it going BP and other health wise? BP is good, protein seems to be holding steady hanging just below 300mg, gestational diabetes takes up so much of my time now (between eating every 3 hours, blood glucose checks and night-time insulin as well as all the other message boards and research I am doing- ugh)

Anxiety level? I am going to go with moderate. I know PE can strike anytime so I am not letting my guard down but I am happy with things right now. I am moderately worried to very worried about how big baby boy is going to be. He was 1lb 14 ounces at 24 weeks + 3days. I have a u/s tomorrow to see where he is at now. My blood sugars are being well controlled so I hope his growth is leveling out.

Free Range, Modified Bed Rest or Strict Bed Rest? Modified bed rest - I keep trying to get freed but then something else comes up - now I am just getting comfy :)

Cravings? lots since I can't have most of them. What I love that I can have is multigrain waffles (2) , with 1/2 cup strawberries and whip cream . Yummy and great for my blood sugar.

Do you have any pets? 2 awesome dachshunds. Grant is a red piebald who is 2.5 years old (standard size) and Belle is a 1.5 year old black with a few tan spots mini - they are awesome!

Favorite TV show? My guilty pleasure is One Tree Hill, Grey's Anatomy and Deliver Me.

Wow- I can't believe how far along some of us on these boards are now! I remember all of our pregnancy announcements and they seemed so recent. I hope the time is going by quickly (but not too quick - we need a balance :p) for all of you as well.

Here we go:
