32 weeks

So the doctor's appointment went fine, blood pressure was a lil high...but it was also after about 5 attempts to even get the machine to read. The most outrageous news of all? THEY SAID I GAINED 16 POUNDS IN A WEEK!!!! Hahaha, I know for sure that is not possible. They have a small floor scale, the old kind with a round dial and I am so sure it was off :)

The only thing I didn't like was having to argue with the doc about frequent ultrasounds (it's been 6 weeks since I've had one). I told him the genetic counselors told me it was vital in pregnancy for frequent and detailed ultrasounds to watch the baby's growth. He told me, "If there is a problem there is nothing to intervene."

WHAT!?!?!?! If there is a problem I NEED TO KNOW SO WE CAN PREPARE THE BEST OPTIONS!!! I wasn't happy, and it made me miss my old doctor's in Kansas City even more. I do have an ultrasound scheduled for Friday morning!

And I think I fixed it so you can leave comments now, so sorry!

Doc in Morning...

So the last two Monday's, I have been sent from the doctor's office to the hospital for high blood pressure. But guess what? As soon as I get to the hospital it seems my blood pressure is fine. I mentioned it to the nurse at the office and she said "I hear that a lot from mommy's, that once at the hospital they are fine!"

Does this sound funny?!?!?! Maybe there is something wrong with the machine in the doc's office? So I've decided that when I go into the doctor, if my blood pressure is high...I have my own solution. He can write me a prescription for a home pressure monitor and I can check it at home, and call in results to him. It is TOO HARD for me to be in the hospital one day a week and it seems to turn out to be nothing!

Now for my freak out moment of the week...I looked down in the car today and the diamond from my wedding ring was GONE. I cannot explain the pure terror that ran through my body I couldn't even think of the words to tell Chris what was wrong I just sobbed. He told me he would buy me another one, but that didn't help. This is my wedding ring, I don't want another one! It was horrible, I'm pretty sure I would have had a nervous breakdown (if I wasn't already) until about 5 minutes into my crying Nadine found the diamond in the back seat! Thank you God!
