26 week appt

Well, I just got back from my 26 week appt. It was pretty boring. Gained 1 lb since my last appt still down 2 lbs from pre preg weight. Blood pressure was pretty good for being at the Doc's office 130/74. I have really bad white coat syndrome and I panic everytime they hook me up the blood pressure cuff. Sometimes, I panic when I watch someone else having it done. (I know it is crazy) I have to keep a log at home so that I can show outside of the office I am okay. I am measuring 28 weeks. I am not sure how accurate that is. I go back in two weeks for another ultrasound, bloodwork, and appt.

Sounds good! I have pretty low bp at home, then as soon as they call my name it spikes. Then they check my weight, little higher.... Then they check my blood pressure. I think I'm going to start logging some readings at home to prove White Coat Syndrome!

Sounds like a good appointment! I always measure big too. With my first they told me he was going to be 12-13 lbs because I had always measured so big. He was 8-5, so not tiny, but definitely no 12 or 13 pounder! I measured the same with DD but they knew that was standard for me so they didn't go nuts on me that time :). It all depends on how your body carries baby, all out in front, more down in your pelvis, or more toward the back.

Don't always believe those measurements. Sorry your BP goes up at the doc office. That's gotta stink. But smart for taking your BP at home to show them that it's normally normal.
