17 Weeks, 5 Days

Standard

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I had a doctor’s appointment on Friday and after describing some symptoms to my doctor including severe headaches still (he was waiting to see if they would clear up after 16 weeks), trouble breathing at times, and black flashed in my eyes when I’m stressed, he said I need to watch my blood pressure.  He said my blood pressure that day was borderline so he wanted me to get a cuff and measure it on my own at home.  I am supposed to let him know right away if I get over 140 or 90.  If it starts getting high then he wants to talk about taking me off work.  I guess we will see.  It was pretty good all weekend and got a little higher today but nothing crazy.  I am trying to do my best to stay calm and handle things as best I can.  It is so hard because not only is work so stressful right now I am crazy hormonal on top of it!  I can’t win! lol

Other than developing Preelampsia everything else is going really well.  They heard both heart beats; 146 and 155!  Very strong 🙂  We go for our anatomy ultrasound on Wednesday, are sooooo excited!  I can not wait to find out exactly what we are having so I can really start shopping and planning.  Our goal is to get the nursery done by December 1 since my husband gets so busy in December (as do I with all the holiday happenings and to-dos), plus it will get harder and harder for me to do much.  So after Wednesday, game on!  I will be sure to let you all know what the results are!  Until then, baby dust to all! xoxo
