Thanks again ladies! labs came back, and from what I can tell they look normal! OB is sending me in for an ultrasound to check out my gallbladder today. I have seen stories of women here who's doctors write off their pains as gallstones or something of the like, but it ends up being HELLP. I rest easier knowing he did all of the labs necessary to determine thats not the case with me. However I seriously doubt this gallstone thing. I tend to get a lot of pains that no doctor is able to pin point. I bet it has something to do with my major back surgery I had a year and a half ago. Who knows?! He did double my BP meds again, seeing as right now they are doing nothing. I have more hope today that I will make it a lot farther along than I was thinking I might even just yesterday. I started getting really depressed and thinking I'm a lost cause.
The other day my husband's cousin was over, and we were talking about my pregnancy. I didn't keep it a secret that I'm having bp problems again. Later that day I got a voicemail from her mom, saying something along the lines of "I better NEVER hear of anymore babies from you! Unless they are adopted!" That REALLY ticked me off. Maybe I shouldn't be pregnant again, but that is between myself, my husband, and my OB! I haven't called her back and really don't plan on it. But now it has me worried... I didn't really think about the fact that maybe my OB will suggest I don't get pregnant again. I wanted at least 3 or 4 kids. And to adopt on top of that. I do see others here that have gone on to have more pregnancies. Is it just up to the person, the doctor, or who??
