Hope everyone is doing well. It's been one of those crazy, busy weeks and I didn't have much computer time! Wow, there are so many new posters on here...I will have to take a few minutes to meet each of you and introduce myself.
In the meantime, to those of you that already know me, I had my monthly OB appt. on Monday afternoon. It went well, except for my blood pressure...which was up a bit. My OB didn't say a word about it, but the nurse left the cuff on my arm and so my paramedic husband rechecked her work (nurses drive him nuts...it's not a female thing it's a paramedic versus nurses thing!) and said my top number was about 140. He didn't get a bottom reading doing the technique he used.
My blood pressure was similar last month, but that was the appt. the day after the 4-hour car drive and I had all that swelling. Not too much swelling on Monday, but some...I sort of overdid at a family Easter celebration in the food dept.! LOL
Hoping that is all this is...I really need to start walking regularly and watching the sodium intake. I never had high blood pressure with past pregnancies.
Other than that, things are going well. Measuring normally so baby is growing fine. I am now required to have monthly growth scans since the PAPP-A hormone was low and the risk for Down Syndrome is there...even though the peri said everything looked good on 3/29.
Oh bummer...I have to have monthly ultrasounds! LOL
So that's about it. Dear husband has finally thrown up his hands in surrender and agreed to give me all baby-naming rights! Of course, now I'm overwhelmed with choices...I think my husband might be up to something and wanting to use this as a future bargaining chip! HA!!!
