How many weeks? 22 weeks exactly

Boy/Girl/Surprise? Girl!

How is the pregnancy going? Not too bad, but could be better. My blood pressure is labile and on the rise. I am now taking two blood pressure meds (aldomet and hydroclorothiazide) and it seems to be working, but I still have spikes. Also, I found out on Monday that I have marginal placenta previa to make things more complicated. But, I am hanging in there and the good news is that the notching that they saw last time had improved. Yeah!

BP? generally 120s/80s, but with spikes into 130-140s/90s-100s

Names picked out? Lily (husband is still thinking about the middle name)

Healthy snack suggestion? carrots dipped in ranch or salsa

weirdest advice you've gotten while pregnant? not any advice really, but I am surprised at the number of people that ask me "didn't you want a boy?" when I tell them we are having another girl. Um, I had no preference and it is not like I can do anything to change it. Usually, I just respond that "no, we are excited for another girl" or that we are excited to give Emma a sister.

weirdest advice you've gotten while pregnant? how about weirdest response? ... I went to a health fair to have a lady excitedly ask me when I was due, when I said in a couple weeks she asked if it was my first, I said no, 4th .. and she then turned sour and said "how can you afford them all" ... I just looked at her in shock for such a rude reaction as if it was any of her business... I've lost a lot in life as well, a husband, a son .. but I didn't answer her... I just walked away...
