Appt today..

So a couple of things happened today..

1. My glucose test blood draw went good. Smile

2. First time ever that they took my BP a couple times because it was high.. Dr said "the top" number was higher than he wanted to see but the "bottom number" was just fine. He didn't say what they were and of course like a dunce, I didn't ask. :roll:

3. I'm measuring 30 weeks :shock:

4. I've gained 8lbs since the last appointment. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! Up a total of 40 lbs now!! :pissed:

5. Rh shot went a-ok!

6. Since I'm in an "odd" week, I go back in 3 weeks to get onto an "even" schedule then continue on with every 2 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW! Biggrin

Yeah, I wouldn't worry too much about the BP unless it's high again.. but it happens.. especially if you're stressed about something. Which I know you have been!

I believe I go back every 2 weeks now too.. bc I go back in 2 weeks lol Happy 28 weeks to you Smile

That's what I was wondering.. I've been under a LOT of stress with work and home and and and.. so I'm wondering if it was a fluke.

I called back this morning and asked what the results were cuz I felt dumb not knowing lol.. She said it was 148 / 64. My mom (a nurse) said that's not too bad.. but was a little up. OB office said my avgs have been in the 120's so for me, it's up there a bit.

Personally, I think unless the GD comes back showing something, it's not a big deal. Biggrin But I think I"ll be a-ok with that.. I just don't have a gut feeling that anything is wrong! Biggrin

That sounds like a good appt. I also wouldn't worry about the BP...it can vary based on your stress level and diet. BOOOO on the weight gain. I can feel mine creeping up and I'm trying to be mindful of what I put in my trap (aka pie hole) but it's so hard. Pregnancy is the one time I'm less hard on myself for stuff like that. Please don't take that away from me. Blum 3

Sounds like a great appointment! Can't believe we're up to 2 week appts now. I go back in 2 weeks too....
Hoping your glucose results come back good! And I'm sure the bp was stress related. Have a relaxing weekend!!!!

Yay for a good appointment! I know nothing about blood pressure numbers, but I'm glad that you have reassurance that its not terrible. Some people's blood pressure just spikes by getting their blood pressure taken. You are measuring 2 weeks ahead of me and I'm due a week before you. I wonder who will pop first? Haha!
