    So i spent near enough the whole day sat in PDC on my own!

    Went to the midwife yesterday morning and my bp was 130/100, wayyyy higher than it normally is and had protein in wee.

    So i toddle off to the hospital where they stick another needle in my, my god i could of cried, they can only take blood from one arm cos of excema scarring.

    After that i got hooked up the the fetal monitoring thingy for an hour is i failed miserably. My stubborn baby would just not move plus his heartrate was all over the place and not between 130-160bpm. Tried toast, cold water and lucoazde and he wouldnt budge.

    By this point i was well and truely shitting myself! They decided to send me for a scan to check his heart, growth, fluid and placenta.

    By this point it was half two and he'd decided to wake up and wouldnt stay still during the scan. She estimated he weighs about 4.9lbs which is bang on average for 34 weeks.

    So basically he's ok but just decideds he wants to play silly buggers sometimes. Been told if i don't feel movement for more than 4 hours to ring up and get checked up.

    But my kidneys are fine and no pre-eclampsia!

    Big thanks to Lesleyann for updating :hugs:
    Now today im moving house lol, must be mental!!!

    Take it easy moving house because if nothing else sends your bp soaring again, that will!!
