Today is my first official day alone and my empty apartment is driving me crazy.
Yesterday after dropping M off I immediately went home and cleaned. When you've been gone for two weeks and barely cleaned before leaving you can bet how messy my apartment was. I literally cleaned from 230-6. That helped take my mind off things but once I sat down to relax realty set in and I looked around my empty spotless apartment and cried. Luckily a good friend of mine saved the day and invited me to dinner so I didn't have to be by myself.
My mom also surprised me by booking a trip to visit. Win she called yesterday wrote M left I was in the background crying hysterically asking her to come. She immediately booked a ticket and will arrive tomorrow. I'm so glad I won't be alone
I know I gotta get over this. Just being sick, pregnant, and alone is hard and throw in pregnancy hormones and you have one emotional army wifey
No sleep isn't helping either. After dinner my friend and I started a movie. A half hour in I left to go home cause I was exhausted. Only to get home and toss and turn all night long. Finally at 330am I fell asleep only to wake up at 530 for my dr's apt
I had my first actual apt today. I was so nervous. I dreaded the pap smear lol. When I was called to get vitals taken I told the nurse I was so nervous and tended to have high blood pressure at first. She took it, it was high and tool my pulse which was 137. She was like yup your nervous but didn't take my bp again. So when I saw the dr she expressed concerns. I showed her my vitals from when my mom took my bp at home this past week and she said that reassured her but that she wanted to be cautious and ordered more labs for me to test my kidneys and liver. She said if it was high I could be put on meds but she also told me to keep taking it at home and bring my results in at my next apt. She said it did seem like I just got very nervous but ordered the labs in case. So off to the labs I went and am hoping for good results. Im sure fatigue, stress, and nauseua and vomiting didn't help calm me down nor make my
Bp normal so we shall see what the lab results are. I'm praying they are good
One major plus of the day, hearing my peanuts heartbeat. Good and strong at I only wish M could have been there
Tomm I'll do a 10 week update. In the meantime has any of you dealt with high blood pressure during pregnancy. Any pointers or concerns?
