You can only stare at my loud shirt......




So I went for my pre-natal appointment this week, and it was a pretty good one. First of all, I found out that I am 17 weeks pregnant (making me due on Oct. 23) instead of Nov. 05 which is what the doctor was saying.... That is the way to skip through pregnancy!!

Other then that we heard baby's heart beat for the first time...it was 140, but the little monkey was moving around so much that the doctor was having a hard time keeping up with him/her.... My blood pressure is up, and so I will have to go Tuesday, and make sure that it is back down where it is supposed to be again. (I have teens-what can I say- and I am sure the hour and a half wait in the waiting room did nothing for my blood pressure either....) I am not too concerned about it, as I have never had any trouble like that before.... so basically although I am considered high risk, my health is pretty good, and in a lot of ways...this pregnancy is going far better then my one with Jeremy! Yaa me! Oh...and the best part..(and I was very excited about this...) is that I only gained ONE LB this month! making it 7 so far this whole pregnancy! I can live with this....

If only every month you could gain an extra week, it would be over in a snap! I think all parents of teenagers have high blood pressure.

Have a great weekend.

Teenagers = High Blood Pressure
Yeah, it's a given. One pound a month, that rocks!

Someone had popped your tummy out! Hmmmm, maybe send the teens away for the summer and your bp will be normal? Just a thought.
