Some days I still can't believe it

It's amazing I am over halfway through this pregnancy and I still have days where I look at my belly and go "Is this for real??" In approximately 4 1/2 months I am going to be a mom!! I spent so many years thinking this was never going to happen, that there was a good chance I would never have a child that its just hard to get past those thoughts.

My OB has labeled me Chronic Hypertensive (which just means an early onset of high blood pressure) The blood pressure pills seem to be doing there thing, my blood pressure has not been up like it was since I started them... Although still slighted elevated a heck of alot better!!! He was pretty 'frank' in expressing to me that there is a good chance I will have an early onset of Pre-Eclampsia. So I am on a low salt diet, walking (as much as I can), making sure to drink plenty of water, and watch my weight gain. He said in doing these things I can hopefully hold it off for a little while or at the very least if it does happen I will be the healthier for it!!!

I will have to be getting blood work done to make sure the blood pressure pills are not causing my platelets to drop. If they are I will have to go off of the blood pressure pills, because a drop in platelets could cause me to bleed out while in labor... I don't know what we do about the blood pressure if it comes to that, its not like I can just walk around with elevated blood pressure cause that can cause its own set of problems.

I have another U/S on the 1st which I am looking forward too =D Happy to get to see my little guy again, I love being able to not only feel his movements but watch them as well!! He is a little acrobat that is for sure, moving everywhere and kicking/punching me all over the place!!! The movements William can feel are still very few since my placenta is anterior my OB told me to expect that.... Hopefully soon we can both regularly enjoy the movements of our little miracle; Nolan Fredrick =)

It's a BOY!!

So we found out on the 4th that we are having a lil boy!! DH is beyond excited I can't even begin to describe =P We almost didn't think he was going to be able to tell us, because apparently I am not U/S friendly LOL but luckily he moved just right so we could see his dinkie!!! I was right about his positioning too his head is right at my belly button and his feet are in my crotch!! I tell you I have experienced much more pleasant things than kicks to my crotch *eyeroll*

No good U/S pics to share they hardly showed anything interesting at all, so I have to go back on Nov 1st for another U/S so my OB can finish getting his measurements! My blood pressure was up AGAIN at this last appointment so he put me on blood pressure pills to see if that gets it under control... I am hoping so... I am way too early into this pregnancy to be labeled as high risk already...

Lost 2 more pounds this last appointment, so I am hoping by the next one I will at least put on a few pounds FX!!! Anywho... No more updates for now =)

I am so aggravated with myself that I haven't had time to update this, but better late than never ;) I have officially started to feel this LO move!!!! It started on Thursday at 19weeks 1day!!!! I still can't believe it! Now that he/she has started moving he/she seems to never stop LOL I am now just waiting until they are strong enough for DH to feel them, but at the rate this is going that should not tbe too much longer... Or at least I hope!!

So the big day is Monday!! We get to find out whether we are joining Team Pink or Team Blue! I am still voting Pink LOL I am really really hoping that this LO chooses to cooperate so that we can see the goods =P Either way though it will be nice to get to see him/her... Man am I tired of having to say him/her LOL It gets really old!! Well nothing else interesting going on right now, better get back to laundry!
