    Thank you so much for sharing that. Would you mind sharing some of the things you learned? I ask because although most of us know there may be someone lurking just as you had and this may be the first place the stumble across.

    Oh goodness, where to even begin LOL! I guess the main thing I learned is that there is a risk to everything - even the old "tried-and-trues" like epidurals are not completely safe! It's just a matter of being informed and knowing what those risks are, and if they are worth taking in your situation.... Don't go in there blindly trusting everything everyone says - that was the most important thing I learned!!!


    So my blood pressure has been jumping all around today - 140/76 this morning, then 110/82 around lunch, then 119/70-something in the afternoon.... Had my mom and everyone at work completely freaking out on me, and of course my doctor gave his usual response of "normal".... I have an appointment tomorrow morning, so I guess I'll see how it looks then! I am just resting in bed right now with my feet propped up - my head is still aching....

    Try not to worry about your BP. It sounds completely normal to me at those levels (wish mine were that low!)...

    I hope your appointment goes well and make sure you KUP!

    Love,

    Great advice for someone lurking.

    Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. Hope you get better soon. Resting is a very good idea.

    Hi Melissa! I'm a bit late here but Welcome to your Lodge! Your story is heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. I'm glad that you two have found a good ballance. Your baby will bennifit from your strength!

    Try not to stress about your BP, stress can only hinder any help your trying to give your body. Drink tons, rest often and keep your circulation moving a bit now and then.
