[:D] After weeks of high readings, averaging 130/83, I am now getting much lower readings, averaging 118/78!! I know that may not seem much lower, but I chart my readings, and you can really see a difference in my chart. My husband jokingly said he thinks our monitor is broken!!
My OB warned me I could just be seeing the typical 2nd trimester dip a little later than most women (26 weeks today). And that seeing a dip in BP a few weeks before the PE hits is a common pattern. She told me not to get too confident and keep monitoring it very closely. Still! I am excited!!
This may sound crazy, but I have been so sure I would develop it again and have to do bedrest, I almost feel like I'm not having a "normal" pg (for me, anyway) now. I swear my brain just overthinks everything!! [:I]
