Nugget's hb was 155. I've gained a total of 8 lbs.

Glad your LO is doing well and I'm happy you like your doc, it's so important. My MFM doc is also understanding of PAL brain, he told me I can come any time for an u/s if I'm paranoid. Yay again for a healthy LO.

That's awesome Torie. I was measuring 2 days ahead last u/s too and it felt so good!!!

What have they said about the cyst?? have you talked to him about delivering early? Would you be induced or have a csection?

Thanks ladies...

They expected to see that the cyst had dissolved itself, however, it has grown slightly, it was 3.7cm and is now 3.8cm, they said they will continue to monitor it and as long as it doesn't grow it should be fine.

They could not see any septate in my uterus, they said that it really needs to be evaluated when I'm not pg, but that if I do have one it's mild enough that it is not noticeable right now, so that's a big relief!

The hospital has a NICU so delivering early is a definite possibility. He said by 36 weeks at least, but he will deliver me earlier if he feels the risks of staying in outweigh the benefits. He told me that if that was the case, he will do the amnio to check the lungs and as long as the longs are mature enough or can be given steroids to bring them to where he wants them, he will deliver me as early as 32, but most likely not until 34. We are not currently planning a csection, so they would induce me.

I also forgot to say that they did the NT scan today, turns out they will not do it past 13w4d and they're putting me at 13w2d so it was close. The measurement was 1.6, she said they like to see under 3 so that was good. They will call me when they get the bloodwork back and can give me the results.

I'm so happy that I like this doc, so very happy.

So my new edd is 11/27, I gotta go change the roll call ;)

Is the planned early delivery due to your previous preeclampsia?

Awesome news again Torie. What are the chances of pre-eclampsia again? I am so glad that your new doc is on top of things.

Yes Kim, but not just because of pre-e. It's because the pre-e came on so suddenly with no prior symptoms and so severe that it killed my baby within hours, that is actually why, to try and avoid it happening again.

Amy, I can't remember the percentage for my chances but I know that because I had it before I have a slightly higher risk of getting it again. I know that something like 0.2% of pregnant women get HELLP syndrome and since I've had that it increases to like 5-7% chance or something like that. I have those statistics written down somewhere!

This new ob seems very on top of things! He said he wants me to call for anything, even cold like symptoms and identify myself as high risk due to a 35 week stillbirth then tell them what's going on. He said he wants to be aware of everything that's going on. He said then he may be able to cut off anything that could be happening.
