So far our plan is not in place. I really think they are kind of playing the waiting game. I was told by my MFM today that if my BP goes up any higher (even without protein) they will just do a c-section automatically. I guess I will see what my OB says on Thursday....I have to have a c-section no matter what due to having a classical with Kelsie.

Well ladies I am going to be 35 weeks on Wednesday and went to the MFM this morning. NO PROTEIN!!!! My BP was higher but stable which means the medication dosage is currently doing the trick. Had my ultrasound and from the looks of things the placenta is still working! They are estimating my little girls weight to be 5 lbs. 14 oz. today! So I am very hopeful that maybe I can get to 37 weeks. Only two more weeks to make it full term! Crossing fingers and toes!
