Moving Right Along!

I had my Drs appt yesterday, and things are going about like they did with my last two pregnancies. I have high blood pressure :( It is not to the "alarming" stage yet though...140/90..so the Dr is going to just monitor it for now and have me look for warning signs of preeclampsia since right now it is gestational hypertension. So, I am trying to relax so I don't have to be put on bed rest.

I have the ultrasound to see about the baby's stomach on the 27th...so I am praying that, Lord willing, everything will be fine. I am already dilated to a 3 so that is good! Thank you so much for your prayers!

Your pregnancy sounds a lot like Molly's. She developed high blood pressure toward the end and eventually had to have a C-section. I'm praying that all with go smoothly for your little baby boy! Love in Him...

3cm already?? That's not fair! :) Jamie told me the other day to just remember that your babies are always early, and not get upset if you have your baby boy a few weeks before me. ;)
Praying for your high blood pressure. Please do try to take it easy--as much as you can with three little girls! Mine has been elevated also, along with all the face and hands swelling, blurry, spotted vision, etc., so they told me to "take it easy" too... so it doesn't become full-blown pre-eclamsia. But that's a whole lot easier for me to do, being at home by myself. ::hugs::
