Not worried, nope, not me...

Not worried, nope, not me...

...yeah right. I have been trying to tell myself that I am prepared this time and have everything in hand. In a certain way, I do, but I also still have those fears inside.

The wife had "the headache" last night - a blood pressure headache - at 15 weeks. When she said it last night, it was like the bottom dropped out of my heart.

But I think I did very well - we took her blood pressure and yes, it was a little high. She got some water on her own and I got her down and resting. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that our 1 year old is not sleeping right now, but it was a little wake-up call for me.

So I got a little wake-up call and feel pretty good that I am not panicking and feel like I am ready to do this again. Just thought I would share that.
