Well, lets see. Weight - down 4 lbs from 2 weeks ago. BP was 128/82 which they said was fine, but that's a bit high from what I'm normally sitting at. Went in, the Nurse Practitioner did my appt. I had originally scheduled with her anyway, but then they switched it to the MW so I could discuss going on Zoloft with her. But she called in today, so I saw the NP anyway. Measured me, listened to the HB, which she said was between 130 and 140 and perfect. Asked me was the Zoloft helping. Told me to come back in two weeks and then after that I'm on weekly appts. She said during week 35 they do the strep test thingy. That doesn't sound real fun to me.
Anyway, quick appt. I can't believe I'm almost to weekly appts. EEEEKKK
Yay, sounds like a good appointment! Could the Zoloft affect your blood pressure at all (not that it was concerningly high or anything.)
I have an appt today too! We seem to be on the same schedule, lady! Mine is not until this afternoon though.

They're testing for a form of strep. The same virus you get in your throat, but it lives in your hoo-hah. Completely fine if you DO have it, it's normal. But it can cause complications for baby on the way out... so they give you an anti-biotic during labor if you're positive. All they do is swab your hoo-hah and ...my doc said "around the back" too, but not "in the back" lol
