Week 14
~ High bood pressure this early? You gotta be kidding me!

14 weeks 6 daysHey guys!!! I'm exactly 14 weeks and 6 days today, and have been sick free!! I love it, except for the fact that I'm starving all the time!! My main craving, which I have been eating every day for a week now, is at a little fast food place called "Frosty Freeze." I eat two baby burgers with cheese with extra ketchup, tator tots with cheese and a Cherry Milkshake!! I'm hungry now for it and it's 9:00 at night!! It's funny too, because my absolute favorite foods just don't appease me now!! I just want greasy bad for you stuff!! I was lucky to lose a few pounds in the first trimester, but I'm sure I'm not going to have a problem gaining it all back plus some!!

So today has been a very interesting day! I had a check up at my obgyn. I've only gained 3 pounds so far which makes me very happy. Everything was going great until they checked my blood pressure. When she checked it, she said it was 146/90 which was high. She then took me to my room where I waited to see my doctor. When he came in, he did the usual--measured my belly and listened to the heartbeat. He then looked at my chart and said, well because of your elevated BP you have to have blood work today, and do a 24 hour urine test, and he put me on Methyldopa 250 mg! So of course I've been so anxious today. Being my hypochondriac self, I've done the wrong thing and researched 'pregnant with high blood pressure' and everything those women have including symptoms, I have now!!

Besides all that, I went on Monday and tried to see if we could determine the gender. My friend that did it for me says 90% boy, but my only problem is with Hallie, they said she was a boy!! I've been looking at different ultrasound pictures of gender online and for my week, it seems like male and female are both still protruding out! Guess I'll have to wait and see!!

I just checked my blood pressure, and it's 129 over 91! Pray for me; I do think that a lot of it is anxiety though!! I'll see you guys next week and I'll update my blood work and urine test. Oh I almost forgot, he scheduled an ultrasound for next week so maybe the genitals may be more noticeable since I'll be 16 weeks!! Talk to you later!!

God bless!!
