Hi all,

Think this may be my last Monday roll call! My protein level is now through the roof at 15 grams ( not meant to be over 0.3! ) and I am on the maximum dose of four types of blood pressure medication. For some reason my blood results are still ok ish and baby is doing well but the docs are starting to worry about lasting kidney damage etc so we have been booked in for a c-section on Wed! I am obviously worried about baby being delivered at 31+6 but after four weeks of hospital bed rest I am ready to move onto the next stage of this journey! I'm also feeling pretty grotty with all the meds etc- not sure how much more my body can take!

Hope you're all having a good week- has been great to know I'm not going through this alone! Xx

Almost 33 weeks here. Hoping to be off the bed rest this Thursday. Most probably we will have the cesarean date also this time.

Thanks for your support everyone. Baby Evelyn was born on 16th  July at 31+6 weighing 3lb 6. She's doing brilliantly- only one night on itu then moved to special care nursery. She didn't need any breathing assistance and has even had a go at latching on today!! My body is recovering from the preeclampsia but just so glad we made it an extra month!! Keep on cooking everyone! Xx
