cross posted from FB Soooo heres my lonnngggg update: Went to my appt. They took my BP it was high. Had me lay on my left side. Came back and took it it went down to where it has been for the past week (150s/90s). The doctor came in and told me that my case was discussed at "High Risk OB Monday group discussion." They decided to do more labs. And send me to my primary doctor ASAP for a high BP work up. She also stated that my 24 hr unrine came back fine (what a relief). And my meds were upped to 200mg twice a day (instead of the 100 she had me on). So I go to my PCP on Wedn morning, and will prolly get more labs drawn. And then I come back to her on Monday. I also asked her about the brown spotting I had two morning last week and told her it was a small amount. She asked if it was after sex and I said no. She told me if there is anymore at all to call and she will get me in for an ultrasound. Kinda freaked me out a lil. I thought brown was okay. :/ Anyways. So hopefully this gets itself figured out. The whole thing is stressing me out more which obviously isnt good for my BP. Oh and I guess I have been following the diet good enough! I lost 4lbs since Wednesday of last week! Small victory! :-)

No feelings either way.... I dont want to get too attach to one gender over the other. With my DDs pregnancy I was sooo attached thinking boy and it ended up being a girl! I was soo dissapointed. I have my doctors appt today at 3. Hoping that it isnt more bad news. :-( I have a BAD feeling about it. :/ I got more bad news at work today... Our enrollment is dropping (too many parents cant afford care or whatever and are leaving for one reason or another.). Our hours just got cut last week and it seems they may get cut again or layoffs can be in the future. Its nerve wrecking! :-(

Well I made my first appointment for the 29th of the month. That will put me at 8 weeks. Also, being the dork I am I took another HPT last night to see if the line was darker a week later. I did the drops in the well and pretty much as soon as it had flowed through the window there was a positive line.. it got there even faster then the control line! I know I am not out of the woods yet but it makes me feel better.

Welcome back E!

Well I got all my son's clothes out of the attic. Not much I could keep for a girl but I did keep a little. So that means more shopping for me. Anyway I posted my clothes on craigs list and some other facebook garage sale sites. Well some lady wants to buy all my newborn through 6 months clothes. So that is exciting. I just need to arrange a time/place. I also have someone interested in 6-9 months too. So maybe I will get rid of these faster than I thought.

Hi Mandy!! :) I'm sorry you're having an eventful pregnancy! I hope you feel better soon :) I don't remember if I ever got to officially congratulate you, so CONGRATS! :) Do you have a feeling either way of boy or girl? I haven't had any feelings yet. I did have my first baby dream last night though, and it was a girl, with lot's of hair!

We are going to interview a doula this evening! I'm happy we are getting so much done lately, because once the holidays hit we won't get anything done!!
Everyone have a great Monday!

Hi everyone!! Long time no talk! I had been away from the boards for a little while already, and then the board change happened (ugh). I'm like Sandy, I almost exclusively got on the boards from my phone and now I can't. :( Took me THREE tries, but ivillage finally let me sign in today!!

I feel so behind! I hope everyone did okay during superstorm sandy! We did okay here in Virginia. Had two days off work, but mostly just lot's of rain/wind/and flooding. No power lost at our home thankfully. Big huge congrats to all the new pregnant ladies - Alyssa, Cassie and Christine!! So happy for all of you!  Also, congratulations on your little GIRL Sandy!!! That's so wonderful!

AFM - Since I last posted I have been to the doctor twice. Like the doctor so far. Had gained just 1 pound at my first appointment, an additional five by my next one. Have heard the baby's heartbeat twice. Everything is normal, healthy, and uneventful. I do have a negative blood type so I will have to get that shot later in pregnancy. I told work, we finished telling the rest of family in person, and I came out in person, so the world now knows we're pregnant! Also, I am definitely starting to show now! It's more obvious in some outfits than others. I'm still in disbelief though, as I don't "feel" pregnant yet and haven't felt the baby move or seen it on an ultrasound yet.

Our ultrasound is in 12 days on November 16th!! I am DYING to find out what we are having and have played around with all the old wives tales for fun. Can't think of anything else to report at the moment, just happy to be back and hope everyone is well!

Sandy – good luck making your own food this time. I’ve always wanted a bullet – I hear they work great!

Shawn – sorry the nausea is back – that’s never fun. Do you hope to have a name by the time the baby is born, or will you choose one after? Thanks for the positive thoughts and words.

Jules – thank you for your prayers! Sorry about the headcold, but maybe it’s  sign that the baby is coming soon!

Mandy – glad the meds have been helping. I can understand being worried about it. I know a few girls on here have gone through it, so they will probably have some great advice for you. That’s terrible about the accident! Hopefully that sorts itself out soon.

Em – I also didn’t feel okay with my last pregnancy until after when I had a m/c. Hopefully the next 4+ weeks go by quickly.

Cassie – thanks for the congrats! It is really great that three of us are due so close –it’ll be fun to see who has their baby first! I can really understand not wanting to go to the doctor or get your betas checked. I waited until 5 weeks when I was PG with Evan after my m/c. Your doctor will figure it out either way though, so if it would make you feel better knowing, I’d go ahead and make an appointment.

AFM – after all your supportive words I feel much better. I’m also temping still, and I feel more queasy/tired everyday, so those are both helping. I plan on getting another test done on Monday, so we’ll see what the number is.

Cassie- everything is soo wonky with siggies. The one I have is one I deleted a long time ago and its back somehow but I figure its better than none at all. lol My BP is getting lower. Not sure how long I need to be on meds before it gets to the normal range or if it ever will. :/ I am in the middle of my 24hr pee in a bucket screening. :/ Sooooo fun NOT! lol. I feel tied to my house. I did manage a walmart and costco trip but def had to come home to pee in my bucket in between. Today I dealt with my car accident stuff. My PARKED car was hit while we were on vacay last weekend. And so I had to call the people since we didnt get too much information that day (my first time dealing with something like this and I got like the bare minimum from them woops!). Anyways filled out the DMV form and emailed my insurance. They have the quote and so far its still in process. So hopefully it will wrap up very soon. :-) I am getting kinda worried about this whole BP issue. As I am afraid of the what ifs- like what if it turns into pre-e (or already has- apparently it is possible). What if they place me on bedrest?! All these are kinda scary. :/ Since the last SEVERAL babies on here have been boys I am ready to see some PINK!! GOOD LUCK November ladies!! :-) Cant wait to see the pretty lil girls!!
