28 weeks pregnant with #3. This has been a great pregnancy. BPs have been wonderful....the best they've ever been in my adult life. I've been feeling great. I've been so active this pregnancy. I couldn't have been happier. We waited for 5 years to get pregnant again after my last two pregnancies....and adopted three times because we didn't think we were comfortable getting pregnant again.....I have been so thrilled with how things have been going.
Day before yesterday I started getting some shortness of breath and felt like I was going to pass out. Normal pregnancy stuff. Yesterday I woke up puking. Figured I had a stomach bug. I took my BP later in the day just in case and they were rising. I had been around 110/75 for a long time. Yesterday they were around 130/85. Boo. Today they are more like 135/95....but they will go down if I lay on my left side.
I guess I just want to whine. My husband is out of town so he's not here for me to whine to.
I'm disappointed. I'm not worried because I've been down this path twice before and everything turned out fine in the end. I know what to watch for and have a good idea of when I need to go to the hospital. I'm just sad. It felt so good to be a happily and joyfully pregnant. It felt so good to be active. I had grand plans to lay a patio, paint my living room, and landscape my front yard before the baby comes. I don't think that's happening. Bummer. But if feels good to get it out.
