Really good appointment today!

I'm measuring at 24 weeks, perfect 'cause I'll be 24 weeks on Saturday, so right on track.

But the GREAT NEWS.... my blood pressure is DOWN!!! WOO HOO. It was high by this time in all my other pregnancies.. and was high at my last 2 appointments, the appointment before that was borderline high.. but today it was... get ready for this.... 128/60!!!

The only bad news.. my pap was abnormal... which happened to me once before. So she'll do another pap in 6 months, hopefully it'll be normal by then, but if not then it'll be off to a gynocologist to get biopsy and colpolsocpy (sp?).. had it done once before about 7 years ago and it sucked.

Basically it's a complication from a history of HPV, which I have had. Basically this syptom can come and go, and since our imune systems are a little compromised during pregnancy, she said it's fairly common to pop up during pregnancy... so it could be normal next time, or not.. we'll see.

But it's not a big deal when treated, so I'm not that worried about it, nor am I going to stress over it... 'cause that would raise my NORMAL blood pressure!

Weight was up a little higher than we would have liked.. but I had also JUST eaten (McDonald's quarter pounder with cheese, apple pie, and an un-sweet tea from Taco Bell)... so it might not be that bad in reality.

So.. there it is. Great appointment over all.

Just wanted to share... Oh, and my ultrasound from 2 (or was it 3) weeks ago confirmed that I DO have an anterior placenta, so that's why we still can't feel baby from the outside. Bummer.. but baby is healthy so I can't complain.

God bless!

Yeah for a healthy babe and great appointment. That is great BP.

I am betting the higher weight is from the high salt of Mc Donalds. but boy does that has me wanting a cheeseburger and fries LOL!!! Drink some extra water.
