Pregnancy

Went to the Doc today and got bad news. I gained 31 pounds in the last week (all fluid) and the protein level on dip stick was +3 to +4. Preeclampsia. Blood pressure is good though and no other signs, and all the babies passed biophysical profiling with flying colors.

Well another sleepless night. You would think that after three weeks or so I would be used to it but it almost seems to get worse. It is ok though because I know we are nearing the end! Soon we will get to see and snuggle our little ones. We are watching closely for full blown Preeclampsia.

Well tomorrow we will be 35 weeks!.....yay.... I am so happy we have made it this far and am really hoping to make it to at least 36 which is next Thurs.
