Looks like we're on the same schedule! I'm 33 weeks + 4 days, and this is our first time with no IUGR!!! OUr last visit about a weeks and half ago was putting her at over 4 lbs!!!!! Our big baby was 3lb 9oz and at 35 weeks!! So we're thrilled we might be able to take her home with us! No pe symptoms or bp issues as of yet!

Glad to see you're doing so well too!!
Severe eclamptic seizures in the car-no pe diagnosis previously- at 28 weeks. Emergency c section baby born at 2 lb 11 oz. He's now 5 years old!

I'm 24 weeks with my second and my growth u/s this week measured the baby at 1 lb 12 oz and 93rd percentile. My DD was born at 31 weeks and was 2lb 9oz and 4th percentile. I think this baby's going to be a lot bigger!!
I'm happy for you!

Great news!

That GD does come in handy for us neurotic previous IUGR people, doesn't it? I had my last growth ultrasound at 31.5 weeks and he was estimated at 5 lbs so it sounds like our babies are on a similar growth track. :) (Our first was 10.5 ounces at 23 weeks and should have been over a pound, at the less than 1 percentile...this baby is around 73 percentile.)

Ms. CJackson,

Congratulations!!!! I am always so happy to hear great news.
I am planning to go on my my third pregnancy.

How long did you wait between pregnancy?
Are you on any special medication? like LOvenox? What medications are you taking?
Was there anything else different you are doing from your first pregnancy?

Thanks for sharing.

My son was born at 33 weeks 1 day, weighing 3 lbs. Today I am 33 weeks, 2 days and the baby is measuring at 5 1/2 lbs due to gestational diabetes! I have no signs of PE yet. (PE with daughter at 35 weeks, PE with son at 33 weeks). I keep waiting for the high blood pressure, protein in my urine or insane swelling but nothing. I'm wondering if I could actually have a PE-free pregnancy this time!

I just wanted to post because I'm so grateful that I got this far! I hope everyone else is doing well!
