Location: Washington, United States

I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

Back from the OB

The OB didn't seem concerned about the stars, told me that they really only worry about that at the end of pregnancy (though I do not think that is necessarily the case...I think the hypertension clinic may think differently). My blood pressure was definitely up, but again, he wasn't too worried. It was 142/78. He increased my insulin with meals, but made no changes with my blood pressure meds.

I see the perinatologist next week (and I am hoping either my blood pressure is down or he will take it a bit more seriously...), and the OB and the hypertension clinic the following week...I have moved to every two week appointments and I start my nonstress tests in 2 weeks...For now, all appears to be OK, according to him. From my point of view, things are definitely starting to change, like my blood sugars are unstable and my blood pressure rising, but hopefully he knows what he is doing! (or at least the perinatologist will next week!)
