Looks like your baby is going to be big and healthy. Ever considered football as a possible sport for him? Also, it sounds like you've gotten the "priority worries" in order. Thirty-two weeks is great.

To the extent possible continue to monitor and relax. It seems that your doctor team is very much on top of this case and your role is to stay focused and keep all parties calm (except the doctors...they should be able to keep themselves calm). Good luck and keep us posted.

32 weeks is great. Hoping she can hang in there for just a few more. You guys are so close now. He is a good sized baby. Thanks for the update. I hope it continues to go well.

Well, we're feeling pretty good considering protein and BP is still rising... U/S today put him at about 68%tile which is pretty darn good I'd say. All measurements seem to be in line with each other too which is good...

Only lab of interest (i.e. all others still in "normal" range) is the 24hr which is now up to 480. Not great (up from 400 last week), but not alarming. BP now crosses the 140 systolic and upper 80's diastolic pretty regularly (ususally mid day). Getting higher highs and lower lows (first thing in morning getting 110's/lower 70's).

Continuing with the same wait and watch and wait some more routine. Mom feels fine (albeit a bit hungry... had to drive 30 miles to find a particular buffet restaurant she wanted, heh). Expect that lab work frequency may go up from once a week if protein continues to rise, but that's for next week's worries [:)] (have to schedule our worries these days, no point in getting worried too soon ya know).

Anyway here's to looking at 33 weeks soon!
