26+2

It's official!
I am in brand new uncharted territory. I am officially more pregnant than ever before! But today wouldn't have been complete if it wasn't for my little trip to OB triage. It could have very well been built up anxiety or maybe not, either way my BP's were creeping up and my headaches have been terrible the past 2 days. SO, I called and went in to be checked tonight.

I guess I have come this far, I would HATE to shrug off symptoms due to anxiety when it could very well be beginnings of pre-e. I would hate myself forever. I am probably THAT patient that could catch the starts of pre-e before it even starts, no lie. I just watch myself carefully and I have good friends, awesome OB and triage nurses that make me feel 1,000% normal for being extra concerned given my unpredictable history.

So I am home, left with my orange jug (24 hour urine) that I get to be married to on Tuesday. It felt good to leave and know I am okay. My labs are unchanged, my protein was negative, BP's were not alarming after some monitoring and baby looked amazing on the monitor. One more day in the books that this baby is cooking.

I made it. One more goal crossed off the list. I said 32 weeks would be my next goal after 26+1, but I am going to be very happy if I get to 30. It looks like a lot of rest is in my future and I'll do whatever it takes to get this miracle baby here safely.

Good. That little sucker needs to stay put. Glad everything is ok. I had a high risk pregnancy the last 2 months of mine (nothing like yours though) and remember the feeling of calling the dr on a regular basis for contractions. I never got over the "Its probably nothing" feeling.

So happy for you and your uncharted territory!! My daughter was born at 26 week +2 days and she is as healthy as can be. You WILL have a healthy baby, I know it! I am praying for you to continue in uncharted territory for many more weeks! :)

Yeah for being more pregnant than ever before! I don't blame you one bit for going to be checked out when you weren't feeling well -- and I'm so glad that you are both doing well. Hang in there!

Hate another trip for you but so glad you feel comfortable in being safe rather than sorry. That's absolutely the way it should be--and there's not a soul on this planet who shouldn't be able to understand just making sure!

So glad the big guy was looking beautifully on the monitor and glad you were reassured!!!

Thinking of you!!!!!
