ok, so I had my perinatal appt today...

first, ultrasound.

baby looks good, fluid looks good. baby is measuring 5lbs 11oz, which is HUGE for me lol, Claire was 5lbs 15oz at birth at 37.5 weeks heartbeat was great and we saw baby practice breathing


second, no protein today, BP was slightly high when I got there, fine when retaken.

third, lab results.

blood test was clean, liver enzymes normal, platelets normal. I am anemic, but they didn't seem concerned.

24 hour urine showed some protein, but it was under 300, so combined with my blood results, I was diagnosed CLEAR OF PREECLAMPSIA!

I am SO relieved right now. I am not 100% in the clear on my homebirth, but my midwife said we *should* be good to go ahead.

I have an appt with my midwife on Saturday to go over the lab results and figure out a plan......I'll be 35 weeks this weekend

Thank you girls for all the thoughts and prayers!

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Oh, I am SO excited for you. That is wonderful news! If I wasn't so darn pregnant and having contractions I would totally get up and do a happy dance for you right now. So, in lieu of that here is an emoticon to express myself
