1st appointment update
12
Tue, 04-20-2010 - 12:00pm
I had my 1st appointment yesterday and now know why I have been feeling so blah! My blood pressure is really really low! They are going to watch it for a while to see if I need meds but for now I have been told to stay off my feet! Easier said then done! My blood work it great! I have my first ultrasound tomorrow morning and am so nervous! It is still so early but if I don't see a heartbeat I will panic! Ugh!

Leanne,


How exciting for an ultrasound!
Please drink lots of fluids, keep yourself well hydrated. Did they check your hemoglobin levels? Have you had morning sickness? Sorry, I'll take off my nurse hat now :)


It's so early that if you don't see a heartbeat, it only means their equipment needs updating, nothing about the baby. I know what you mean, though, that first one is always so scary. And then the second one, too....


KUP after the ultrasound!

Hi Leanne :) Good luck good luck good luck - I hope you see that heart beat! Now go sit down - (how does one do that with a 9 month old and a 2 1/2 year old???) ......I guess lots of puzzles and toys and play in front of the tv!

Hugs, Jasmine

Hey Sunday!
You would make a fab nurse! They checked my HGC levels 3 times so far and they are great! I am trying to drink lots but feel so sick so it has been hard! Thinking of the baby makes it a little easier! The Dr. doesn't think I have morning sickness, this sick feeling isn't at all what I had with my first two (I had really bad morning sickness with them). He thinks it is from the low blood pressure! I almost fainted at the dentist on Friday (broke a tooth and had to get it fixed) so they had to give me oxygen:( I am going to eat some extra salt today since I was told that can help raise my blood pressure!

Thanks Diana!
As much as I hate following orders, I intend to listen to these ones! I do whatever I need to for my babies!

Thanks Jasmine,
I am lucky enough that DH is home for a couple weeks so he can help with the kids! Doesn't help that I babysit my cousins girls (3 and 5) twice a week!

Leanne,


If you can't get anything else in, try gatorade. Definitely increase your salt, and as many fluids as you can get in. Increasing protein can help also. If your low blood pressure is from anemia, iron supplements can help, so I'd ask the doctor about that. I hope you feel better soon!
