Wow there really are a lot of us at the same point right now, end of the 20's. It is a stressful point because it feels so close but still so far away to have a healthy baby.

1) 26 weeks
2) Very tired and a little worried lately. Had first BP spike in the last few weeks and some spotting, but so far baby looks OK. He is quiet today too, I hate days like that.
3) 28 weeks is my next milestone!
4) What are you dressing up as for Halloween? Don't do Halloween but if I did, I would be the big round deathstar and Luke would be lukeskywalker of course! LOL

1) 27 weeks tomorrow
2) Feeling good- but tired and worrisome lately
3) 30 weeks- somehow I feel like this is a magic number- that if I can just get to 30 weeks, everything will be ok. Hopeful I get to at least 34 1/2 weeks like I did with my daughter. Also goal is to try to not to be on bedrest at all
4) Barely want to get dressed in normal clothes with my belly so huge already- not sure I want to dress up at all- but will probably put something on to go trick or treating with my 2 year old

1) How far along are you? 26 weeks today

2) How am I feeling? like garbage. I am on a lot of medication, maxed on 3 bp meds, and they make me very sick. I am worried about not making it far enough. I am worried about my BP and the baby all the time. I just want to make it at least 1 more month.
3) what milestone am I looking forward too? 28 weeks because I know my baby can survive and has a chance, my first pregnancy I was diagnosed with pre-e and admitted to the hospital at 28 weeks. Then 30 weeks.
4) Halloween? i won't be dressing up. I am suppose to be on bed rest, but might take my kiddos out for a short trip. My 4 year old DS wants to be spiderman not sure about DD (2) yet.

1) How far along? 28w 5d
2) How are you feeling? Feeling great. A little sore down below when I walk a lot.
3) What milestone are you looking forward to next? I just passed my first milestone. I was put on bed rest with DS at 28 weeks due to his long bones being 2-3 weeks behind. Had a great growth scan this time at 28 weeks¡Kshe is 52% and 2lb 11oz. as of last Thursdayƒº. My next milestone is 30 weeks when I was diagnosed with PE.
4) What are you dressing up as for Halloween? Not 100% sure yet. A friend has a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader costume she wants me to wear¡Kwith my belly hanging out¡Kyikes.

1) 36 weeks and 5 days!
2) Generally I am feeling well, quite pregnant, but no PE symptoms!
3) Full-term is Wednesday.
4) It's enough for me right now to figure out what Bennett is going to dress up as. I think I will just be me this year.

1) 29 weeks (Alice died at 26 weeks exactly) so great to get this far even, baby estimated weight was 2lb 10 at 28+0
2) Feel absolutely fine
3) Really just to have a living baby would be great
4) not even thinking about it...

1) How far along? 21 weeks
2) How are you feeling? Pretty good except I am ALWAYS tired
3) What milestone are you looking forward to next? (e.g. feeling the baby, gender ultrasound, getting farther then you did with your last pregnancy) I guess getting farther than I did with my last two--that would be 34 weeks. I am shooting for 36 weeks which is when my MFM has decided to get the baby out
4) What are you dressing up as for Halloween? Not dressing up this year
