    Aaaargh! Spent the night in hospital last night after a big mix up over my blood pressure! Went to have my 38 (+4) week check yesterday and my bp was presenting at 170/112 after 4 attempts and a break in between. Sent up to the hospital to find bp had gone down to 129/86 (normal for me!) It turns out the GP should have used a large adult cuff, not a small one as these don't always give accurate readings on heavily preggers ladies! So a waste of time had by all.... although it was nice being on the monitor and listening to LOs hb alot.... oh and my overnight bag works so that's good too!

    Off to bed now to catch up on some sleep... that labour ward is not a place to sleep in!
