So sorry I didn't write back yet I just got so busy and excited after I heard from them yesterday. They called me later on in the day to tell me everything looked PERFECT on my test!!!!!! I am so glad everything is okay right now! I think they are going to have me start coming in once a week to do bp checks for a while just to make sure they aren't trending upwards.. I'm just so thankful that they are being proactive. Thanks guys!

Has your Ob's office called you back with results? And how is your blood pressure?

I am seeing the doc. every two weeks now and I went in this morning at 11:00.. My bp goes as low as 94/43 at home and as high as 120/73 in the office because I get a little nervous. Today, though, it was 128/86 which i realize isn't bad but since my low is 90's/40's it got the doctor a little nervous. She said she was having some bloodwork done today and I am just waiting around for the results. I get so nervous at this time. I am almost exactly where I was when I had my first little munchkin (28 weeks and 5 days) and the day I had her my bp shot up from 120/80 at the office to 200's/high 120's within about an hour and a half..

They said they were doing the bloodwork stat so they should have them by now.. I called and spoke with the receptionist but she said she would have to have the nurse call me back sometime this afternoon. I HATE the waiting!!!! It's driving me crazy!
