looking like this will be preemie #2

Sigh.

We knew there was a risk of pre-eclampsia with future pregnancies. DS was born at 27 weeks 1 day due to pre-e/HELLP/severe IUGR.... and I'm starting week 3 of hospital bed rest on mega-doses of blood pressure meds with #2 - we were 26 weeks yesterday.

On the plus side, at 24 weeks this baby was above average size - the same size at 24 weeks as my son was at 27 weeks. Baby #2 appears to be doing well, even for all that's going on.

Ah well. At least we know what we're getting into, right?

So sorry to hear that! Hopefully they'll be able to keep you stable for a few more weeks at least.
