Quoting echupko:Yesterday was not a good day. I was extremely busy. Teaching multiple classes, dr appt, getting LEDs where they need to be so I could go to dr!
Well about 45m before my appt I put my 13 year old chihuahua in the fenced in back yard to go to the bathroom. She goes out there everyday. When I went to get her 20m later, she was GONE!!! I ran up and down my roads crying and barefoot trying to find her! She only weighs 2lbs I just knew I was going to find her dead. A car saw me and came and asked me if I was looking to a tiny dog! She had seen her a few minutes ago! I found her!!!!!! Afyer 20 long minutes i had her! She had squeezed through the tiny crack by the gate and fence (and we have a wooden fence!)
Then at my OB appt my bp was high...I have a history of HELLP syndrome so this was VERY scary! I cried the rest of the day. I Che led it at home and it was still high. The dr thoughts the it could be from the stress of Abby and that I had drank coke (I NEVER drink soda bit I was puking and I sounded so good). He told to just keep doing what I'm doing and come back in two weeks. If its still high, we can start worrying then...
Needless to say I did not sleep last night. I read several articles online about caffeine temporarily raising bp.
I checked it this morning 2x and it ranged from 124-130/71-77. I feel so much better! I was so so scared. Please pray for us though, I just can't imagine losing this sweet baby. I'm 12w1d and baby looks so good.
And 1 more thing.....today is my son Paxton's 4th birthday!
Quoting Irene1923:I am doing well. For the first time yesterday, I felt truly excited and that everything was going to be ok this pregnancy. I kept getting a stupid grin thinking about August and its been a very long time since I have felt that way about anything.
On a slightly less enthusiastic note, my car needs about $1500 worth of work before baby comes. I love my car but putting 110,000 miles in about 4 yrs has ran it ragged. :(
Happy Birthday Paxton!!!! 4's huge!!! I'm so glad you found Abby, I get so worked up when I can't find my pets...cats, dogs, anything. That's probably the reason why your BP jumped up, that and the Coke. Especially if you never drink it. I'm sure the baby bean is just fine.
I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. (hugs)
So glad baby's doing well. That's got to be a huge relief and we worry about so many things now. It's consuming almost.
Sorry to hear about your car! I have almost the opposite problem where I live. It's so rural, there's no place for me to go!!!! LOL!! Well, there is, but lots of driving is included so I try to do it only a few times a month.
That's a super cute little guy you've got there. I bet you're one proud mama!!!
Quoting echupko:My birthday boy!!!
Happy Birthday to Paxton!!!
I'm sorry you had such a scary day :( But on the bright side, everything turned out just fine, and your BP sounds really good today! Big sigh of relief! I'm glad baby looks good :)
