So glad that you went and got soem epace of mind.

I hope the bloodwork ends up looking good too. So sorry the antibiotics are making you feel bad. I've so been there.

As for the bp. If you are someone who requires the larger cuff, and they used a smaler one it can bring on a reading that is high, falsely. I hope that's all it was with that reading.

I hope you have many more wonderful weeks in this pregnancy!

Isn't it amazing when you can see the four chambers of the heart. I am so glad that things are going well!

Thanks everyone! I'm glad I made the appointment and went to it. I just felt the need to be extra sure everything was okay, which it is. My Peri is an amazing, calm and caring man and totally understood why I was there. He's great. So smart and amazing. I felt very comfortable yesterday with him.

Honestly, I am concerned that they can get high BP readings on me, even if it's right in the middle of my u/s, etc.... I will talk to my OB next week about how it seems to read high, then lower, etc...Are the readings really high? Or is it that the techniques are different for taking it? Again, they used a small cuff, then a larger one that fits, etc...So, I'm not TOO worried. My readings at home are good on my machine. And I really hope this is just a bladder infection. I think it is. I don't feel like I have PE symptoms. (fingers crossed!) My antibiotics are making me feel sick to my stomach. They warned me about this. Oh well. Anyway, baby is great and was so cute yesterday! Did I mention that we even saw the heart? Not just a beating blob, but the real heart! Up close, all the chambers, etc....They have amazing machines at my Peri's office. I was amazed. Very cool.

Glad everything went well. Gotta love boring! I know what you mean about going to the doctor every week. At my last visit, I asked my peri if he wanted to move in with us!

Very cool picture, by the way!
