24 weeks!

I'll be 24 weeks tomorrow!! So happy! That was my second goal! The little guy's movements still are not consistent, but it is such a relief when I feel them. I have an OB appointment today and hope they find the heartbeat fast. He has been moving around every time we put the probe on him that it takes awhile to find it, which of course puts me in a panic.
We are leaving for a week long vacation in Oregon on Saturday. Then I have another u/s on May 6.
I've also started a temporary relief veterinarian position this week, 20 hours a week for probably no more than 6 weeks. They know that I'm high risk and have to watch myself, but we need the money and it will be helpful to have the position on my resume!

My BP has been stable with the meds and my kidneys are doing what they are supposed to!
