It's great to know that everything is going great with you and your baby!

I love the part where you get to have a nurse go to your place instead of having to go through the trouble of traveling to the doc's office. I wish I had that.

I'm sure my BP would read much better if this was the case [:D]

I always panic whenever I go to the doc's, so my BP reads high the first time and the next minute its ok.

XOXO

Therese...

Girl, I know how your feeling!!!... Our milestones are HUGE and even something as simple as ordering bedding is a huge deal for us.

I still can't believe how far we have gotten and were so close to holding our healthy little boys.

Here's to another great month ahead of us!!!

30 week, 3 day checkup

Postby twolfgram » Fri Jul 09, 2004 05:42 pm

I had my weekly checkup on Tuesday, with BPP. The baby scored a perfect 10 on the BPP and my BP was 104/70!! Lying down, but I've been taking them sitting up at home and they've been low, too! I am now having a nurse come out on Fridays to my home to do NST's as well as the weekly visits on Tuesdays with the hole shebang! Today was the first visit and baby passed with flying colors and my BP was 120/78, sitting up! Next week I will have another level 2 as well. I can't believe I'm this far already and feel so good. I just love this dr's office. They're so good about always making sure I know that whenever I feel something isn't right, to call or go to L&D. I can't help but feel that if my old OB's office had said to go to L&D instead of making me wait four hours for an appt that Erik MIGHT still be with us today.

Anyway, another big milestone for me - I orderd a border and bedding for the nursery!! It is actually going to be ready for this little one when he gets here!

Well, it's off to the couch to stitch!
