So today was my ultrasound and consult with a specialist about weather or not I have high blood pressure and any issues with the baby. The ultrasound was awesome I have a perfectly healthy strong baby growing and measuring 6 days a head of the due date. The consult was great too, the doctor actually listened to me about the panic attacks, looked at my at home bp cuff and they checked my BP and I was 124/84 barely above normal. Since the baby shows no signs of me having high blood pressure and all the tests they have done have come back normal the doctor said he isn't concerned that I have a blood pressure issue, I just get freaked out at the doctor. I still run a 6% risk of preclampsia because of my age but that's a 94% chance of having a normal pregnancy.
I like my OB a lot but I honestly think she feels that all overweight people have high blood pressure period. I also know after this baby is born it is my goal to get down to my goal weight once and for all so when we have baby 2 I hope to have less worries.
Now on to the best part!
He/she looks just like Daddy! I can hardly wait until the day I get to see this beautiful face in person!
