Appointment went well, no protein which of course was a huge concern. BP at the office was 130/89 and I was LOST 5 pounds. Luckily the appointment was with the nurse practitioner who is the person I saw most when I was pregnant with Veronica and she has PTSD right along with me when it comes to be being pregnant. I explained to her that I wasn't doing well emotionally, my b/p was up, I had been crying none stop and she said given my history she can justify taking me out of work. So no more work until the baby gets here. She told me to rest and make sure I was eating because losing 5 pounds in two weeks was a lot. She also sent me home with a tube of urine test strips so I can test if I get nervous or notice I'm going to the bathroom less.
Since I have been home my blood pressure is slightly higher then it was early on, but most of the readings are in the low 100s/60s. Tonight it was 98/67 which made me really happy.
Tomorrow by my dates, I will be 25 weeks 2 days which is the day I was admitted with Veronica. I have no swelling, and my bp is good, so I'm hoping and praying that tomorrow is uneventful. Since the doc and me have different due dates, I get to go through that day again on Sunday. I feel like my date is right though, because with there date I got a BFP at 4 dpo which makes no sense.
My next u/s is 9/11 and I'm hoping and praying that little guy is close to two pounds, at 22 weeks he was 1 pound 4 ounces, so if he is gaining 4oz a week we have a shot.
I so badly want to see week 28, then week 32, then week 36 and then get to meet our baby and take him home!
This is such a roller coaster, I'm so happy I didn't try to go through this with my ex. My new hubby is amazing, and giving me so much more support.
