Good luck to you! You're getting close... : )
Thanks! I did not think there was much that could be done. I drink lots of water, exercise, try to avoid salt, and rest my feet when I can. I was told by one doctor to try compression stockings. Don't know if the use is warranted for pregnancy.
I am considered "Advanced maternal age" and I can tell you my body is standing up in boycott at almost every turn. Just thankful I've been a fitness buff because I cannot imagine what this would have been like otherwise.
Yes, that I am so close has me pretty nervous. This will likely be our one and only.
