Chet- What are they saying about your blood pressure? Why is it so high?
It was 193 over 101! I think it was due to stress though, but because I had Pre eclempsia in my first pregnancy, they want to keep an eye on me. Did you have a private scan? I'm so jealous, I still have 12 days before m scan!
No, my doc said that at my 9 week scan he saw 2 subchorionic hemorrhages that he wanted to keep an eye on. He told me to get another scan in 10 days, well on Thursday I had a bit of spotting. So I freaked out and doc sent me for a scan the next day. All is well! It was such a relief to see that little angel with a strong heart beat. Baby is back to measuring 1 day ahead, so I'm feeling really good now. No more spotting, so I'm just taking it easy.
Wow! That blood pressure is high! Mine has always been really low, but I went to my GP a few weeks ago it came out really high. So I asked her about it and she said not to worry, its probably the machine. I just looked at her, so she checked again manually. She was right. When they did it manually it came out to my normal low level. I guess its because I'm fat, the machine doesn't like my big arm.
Aww I've been waiting for someone to comment!! Hehe.
Hi Scot! We r gonna be plums tomoro!! Yay!!
R u ok? I've had my scan, last Wednesday! Days were spot on. Got my next one on the 6th June. Counting the days!
I'm fine, feeling good now no more sickness. I've got an NHS scan next Frday so something to look forward to. Still hearing the heartbeat on the Doppler in the morning when I've got a full bladder so that's reassuring. Hopefully the time will go quicker once we're past 12 weeks. I'm not keen on being a plum lol I think that's smaller than a lime!
Guess its probably heavier tho, maybe? Either way, it's going the right way up the ticker! Lol.
The last week has flown by to be far. Now people know about it it's a lot more fun! I'm amazed by the kindness and generosity people are showing, and amazed by how horrid some other pregnant "friends" can be.. But the good is outweighing the bad defo! Just can't wait to start feelin normal and not like a zombie all the time lol
