Not too sure if anybody here remembers me, or maybe there are quite a few new posters here. Just dropping by to give you all an update on my 2nd pregnancy (I had pre-e with my first, which resulted in me having my son at 28wks 3 yrs ago).

I am now in my 27wks! Will be 28wks next week wednesday. I'm still holding my breath though and worry alot!! It was at 27wks the last time that the doc told me I had pre-e and had to be admitted to the hospital. Although I'm already in my 27th week, i'm still very nervous about something bad happening. As a matter of fact, actually at my 27th week appt, I was told I test positive for gestational diabetes

So I'm devasted. I know it's not as bad as pre-eclampsia, but I'm still very devastated because I just can't seem to have a NORMAL pregnancy!!! So since I found out, i've had to change my eating habits and cut my carbs and eat alot of vegetables, and cut out all sugars!! It's hard
But i've been trying to be optimistic and keep reminding myself it could be worse!!

Anyway, I've got 2 1/2 months left til my c-section. My doc feels it's best to deliver at 37wks. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed i make it til then!!! April 11th is the date. Oh btw, i'm having a GIRL.

I am so sorry about the GD, that stinks. But I am so glad you are 27 weeks already and on track so far! Those Lovenox shots must be doing the trick! Fingers crossed that everything goes well from here on out!
