name: sam

gestation: 25+2 wks

Brags: good size baby for 25wks 2lbs 1oz approx, my son Jake had severe IUGR and was 1lb 70z when born

Drags: dreadful morning sickness until 15 wks, migraines since 5 wks but they are easing off considerably now, only just occasional sickness now from wretched heartburn/indigestion

BP: good, average out at 115/65 had a spike last week of 153/103 but that was totally stress induced probably due to an adrenaline surge, and it went straight back down to normal a few hours later (caused by a very noisy neighbour driving me nuts!)

Names: we have settled on Kitty violet Julia as we know she is a girl, named after david's grandmother and my 2 grannies
