27 weeks and a CAR SEAT!

Here I am at 27 weeks!



My appointment last week went MUCH better than previous ones! YAY! My BP was 124/75. It was good for the first time EVER at my appointment!  Also, my protein in my urine dipstick was negative!

The new BP med. I am on every 8 hours is really helping me to feel better although I still don't do much without getting winded and exhausted. And she still has me on modified bed rest until delivery. I am grateful for each day she stays safe inside and continues to grow! My doctor says she will not let me go full term and will be THRILLED if I make it to 34 weeks-JUST 7 WEEKS FROM NOW!! YIKES!

Hearing that got my butt in gear!!! Since I gave most ALL of my baby items-including all baby girl clothes to my 3 kids birth mother 2 years ago when she had her baby.  I felt it was time to at least buy the car seat so if I go early, we are somewhat prepared!  Here is the seat I ordered-its shipped and ON THE WAY!  Its the Graco Snugride Infant Car Seat-ZOEY.  LOVE IT!


I have my 3-D sono, 24 hour urine protein & glucose test a week from today! I CAN'T WAIT!

Hope you all have a BLESSED WEEK!

  4. The reality that you might birth her in as little as 7 weeks is crazy! It seems like I just started following your journey, although it's been close to a year now, I guess! :)
