Pregnancy after loss is such a rollercoaster of emotions. I hope you find some peace at your appointment- I hope you'll also talk to your doctor about coming in early if you're having one of those days where you just need the reassurance. Your peace of mind is always worth it. I remember sitting and stewing and freaking out and then finally just calling and the whole office understood got me right in to hear the heartbeat. It meant so much to know I could do that whenever I needed.

I'm keeping crossables crossed this is just the run of the mill 2nd trimester bump up in pressures and keeping you close in my thoughts,

It is so hard to remain calm, and sometimes just impossible. I remember days of panic. No fun at all. After the 2nd trimester dip, BP goes up a bit, so it might just be the normal range you will see from now on. I will be thinking of you and let us know how your appointment will go tomorrow.

I have spent the good part of the day crying, to the point where I gave myself a nose bleed this morning. I can not wait for my doc appointment tomorrow. I hate this feeling, I don't want to go through went I went through last time or worse. I don't want to put my new husband through that either, and of course I want me and the baby to be healthy.

its normal to begin to get anxious i think ....i really dont know how i will handle it when i get to the point at which PE set in i try not to think about it .....being home from work may make matters worse as you may really start worrying ... try to find some distractions but trust your body and your instincts

So since yesterday afternoon my BP has been over 100/65 a few readings over 110/70 (all under 120/80)... I no this is still in the "normal" range but considering it had been under 100/65 up until this point I'm getting really nervous (which I'm starting to wonder if that is making my BP go up). I have a doc appointment tomorrow. No swelling or anything yet... there is a conflict between me and the doc on due dates to according to them I'm 23 weeks 5 days and according to me, I'm 24 weeks 3 days... I don't know if I'm just getting stressed because I'm getting to the point where I had preeclampsia last time and that is what making my pressure go up... or is a slight rise after the second trimester dip okay? When not pregnant my normal b/p is 110/70. I have a doc appointment tomorrow, I'm thinking about calling off sick today and seeing if maybe they will take me out of work for the next three weeks to get me through this point in the pregnancy.
