Ob appt with a different ob this week - loved her! She had actually read my file and remembered lots of details from it. She took the time to answer my questions with explanations instead of just yes/no/maybe. I tried to get back in to see her next time, but she's booked solid (she's very popular and I can see why) and just hope that I can get every other appt with her. I do have to go back in 2 weeks for another check - my blood pressure was 160/90!!! It's never been high before! (but baby was fine with a heart rate in the 130s) They had me lie down and it went down to 140/84 within a few minutes (less than 5) but that's still really high for me. Hoping spring break next week gives me a chance to relax so that it stays in the normal range.
However, relaxing will be difficult for me this week. I have a million things to do. I really need to get the baby's room ready, do some spring cleaning, register at Target and Babies R Us (already registered at Amazon.com), get the guest list for her shower finalized, do a day long check on one of the cat's blood glucose levels, along with just the little things that need to be done on a daily basis. I'm also baby sitting for my nieces one day this week - but that'll be lots of fun :) I have crafts, games, books and new toys all ready to go. Also want to go into work one day to get some things ready for next year (some other early learning teachers have offered to share their materials with me, so I need to get those copied and organized so next year goes smoothly without too much work needed outside of school hours). And, of course, this is a great time to see some friends that I don't get together with very often. Guess spring break needs to be longer!
