    Yesss! I can't believe it's that time!
    Well, for y'all that don't know me, I have 5 kids (see siggy)
    My first three kids were hospital births. Had one OK experience, one meh experience, and a pit augmented birth from hell. Since then, I went on to have 2 amazing home births. After my last birth, I had "post partum pre eclampsia" and ended up in the hospital. But this time I am on meds, my BP is holding steady, and the OB doesn't see any reason why this baby needs to be born at the hospital. So Yippie for that
    My appointment Monday was complete with a sono. Daphne is head down and approx 6lb, 4oz. My BP was 111/77 and my weight "gain" so far this pregnancy is -2 pounds.

    Welcome to your lodge!
    Glad everything is looking good! I didn't know you could get pre-e post partum. Good to know!

    It was wild! My feet and legs swelled and the headache was awful. I thought it was exhaustion. My BP got to 151/108. I got IV mag sulfate. It was nice though because I was able to take meds for it that pregnant woman can't.

    wow, I had no idea you could get pre-e postpartum either. That sounds incredibly scary. I can't wait to follow your journey with Daphne!!!! Welcome to your lodge! I can't believe you're getting this close.

    Welcome to your lodge! Glad everything is looking good with baby and your health right now! Is it normal for you to lose/not gain any weight in pregnancy? I have gained very little so far, but I'm only 21 weeks... with DD I only gained after week 20 as well...but then I still put on 35lbs.

    Can't wait to hear more about your journey!

    I have been terrified of getting pre e so I have been basically watching everything I eat. When you eat better than you do not pregnant, the weight kinda falls off. And I am obese anyway.
