With Clark, I'd like to say I had a pretty uneventful pregnancy, with the exception of the Kidney Stones I had, I would say not much happened.
I just wonder if carrying a girl would have been such an ass kicker if I had a girl first and a boy second?
The morning sickness, the 'other issues' that came up recently, and now, just this past week I went to the doctor for my regular check up and I thought all was well until they said my blood pressure was high, they re-tested me and sure enough, it was still up there. I guess I also hadn't been listening the first time around because they also found protein in my urine.
Lucky me :S. I guess you could say the high blood pressure could be caused by the fact that I am constantly on the tail of a toddler, and sometimes he does things that just get me so wound up I lose my cool. But the other thing, I can't explain. Of course this is all coming on the heels of my sister getting married. The doctor really didn't want me to travel, and when she said some of the problems I could face could be seizures if my condition got worse and developed into preclampsia, I was upset. I was upset for many reasons, I blamed myself, I've been stressed out lately about the house being clean, and about Clark behaving, and just making sure things were tidy and in order at the house. Currently there are books and toys scattered everywhere, I just can't be bothered to clean it up, I don't feel like it and I'm not the only person in the house who knows how to clean. I talked to my sister who told me not to stress out about not being able to come, and as much as I try not to be upset, deep down inside I can help it. How many times do you get to see your sister get married? (once and only once is the correct answer here). So while I am waiting for tests to come back and blood work to come through I can only hope the doctor tells me that things are ok. I don't feel like going on bedrest, and I really don't want to have to deliver at 37 weeks (although the plus side would be having a baby near my birthday).
To my friends and family that read my blog, I will keep you all updated, but for now, i am in the waiting place....
