Appointment Yesterday

So I'm just now getting a chance to tell you guys about my appt yesterday.

So....my blood pressure was high, so now we are going to have to monitor that. They gave me some symptoms to watch out for like vision problems and headaches that I'm not having, so I'm hoping it goes back down by my appointment next week.

Also, I gained 4 lbs in 2 weeks! I haven't gained much all pregnancy, so I'm not worried about it, but it was kind of weird to suddenly pack on 4 lbs in 2 weeks. Whatever.

Also, by measuring my fundus, Rocket is measuring at 38 weeks. Big boy continues to be, well, big.

Other than that, I guess it was a good appointment. We are still waiting to see if the dr is going to recommend inducing me early.

I'm now on weekly appointments. :eek:

Boo for the high blood pressure, hopefully it will come back down for you. I had an 8 lb. gain over one of my 4 week stretches which averages out to 4 lbs in 2 weeks, so that doesn't sound too surprising, especially if you haven't gained a lot overall. Crazy that you are on the weekly appointments already! We're going to start having babies on this board very soon!

I too gained 4 pounds in two weeks about two weeks ago. I thought it was weird too but the doctors didn't say anything. hope everything gets better with your blood pressure. Is there anything that you can do to help lower it or keep it low?

Hope your blood pressure goes back down. 38 weeks! Holy moly! How big was T when he was born again? He was born at 37 weeks right? If you popped at the same time then you would only have 2 more weeks!! You know too, they said my friend's baby was going to be a huge one, they guessed over 9lbs and he ended up under 8 lbs. So you really never know!

OMG, we're all so close. It's CRAZY! and exciting. I hope you don't have too many issues with your blood pressure. Where you induced early with T or did he come on his own?

Elizabeth - T was 7 lbs 6 oz when he was born, so that was totally doable.

Joan - He came on his own right at 37 weeks. I keep trying not to think about how 37 weeks is only about a week and a half away because we are NOT ready. LOL
