This is my 5th baby. I have been induced 4 times due to severe pre-e. I am 30 weeks this week and my hands have started swelling, my face has blown up, I can feel that my BP has been up. I just KNOW that when I go to see my dr tomorrow (reg apt.) that he is going to have not good news for me. I will end up on bedrest at home at least. This has happened with the last two pregnancies and it was HELL.

On top of that I have my glucose test tomorrow and I think I am going to fail it for the first time. I have had sandpaper mouth for a couple weeks. Plus this pregnancy was practically on top of the last one and I am over weight.

UGH. NOT looking forward to tomorrow.

So here is the update. BP was 142/78

Passed the blood sugar test

I am 30 weeks 2 days and measuring at 33w 4 d

and estimated weight is already 5'3"

And Yes I know they can be off by up to 2 pounds.

hang in there.. I fail the screenings horrible for the GD btw and have passed the 3 hour fine with both of my kids now .. I forget what the fail rate for the screening is but it's pretty high.  I have major anemia issues in pregnancy and I always have that creeping BP and that trace of protein :).  With my first it turned pre-e but not until the very end. This time I"m at 33 1/2 weeks and I just pray each appt. :) :)  Hang in there.  Sending good karma!!!!!! :)
