Last week!

So I know you can beat me all you want I have been bad about blogging!  Well let me start from last weeks mess.....I was at work on Wed.  and it was a pretty busy day we were really moving patients.  I noticed I had a headache that wouldn't go away!  So I decided I would take my blood pressure just to be on the same side.  Sure enough it was high at 157/75 I was upset about it and continued to take it throughout the day and it was still slightly elevated.  I called my OBGYN and she said that I couldn't wait to see the High-risk specialist until the 19th and she wanted me to see her two days later on Friday the 12th instead and to let her know about the blood pressures.  The next day Thursday I was really upset so John told me to stay home and take it easy he went that night to also buy me a home blood pressure cuff to montior it at home.  I decided then I was going to be very proactive and put myself on a low sodium diet for the health of the baby in hopes of keeping any blood pressure issues at bay.  Well Thursday my blood pressures were okay slightly elevated with activity.  Friday for my appt they were good and I got to see the baby wonderfully bouncing around so much that they couldn't take proper measurements!  We tried to wait for the baby to calm down but didn't work baby was definately up and in the playing mood.  It would bend its knees all the way down and then POP back up again using my uterus at a moon bounce!  Would wave its hands in the air and play with it's face.  Was a wonderful sono and I am so happy cause it made me feel so much better.  The doctor told me to watch out take my BP daily and then come back in one week.  Baby's HR was 176 since it was so hyper!  Here is a picture of the baby at 10 weeks 3 days gestation.
