So maybe I overreacted just a tad

Update on the mind-wandering anxiety:

My blood pressure, while still higher than usual, is not in the hypertension/preeclampsia range anymore.  My scale is out of whack, apparently, as I gained only 3 pounds in 10 days, not 5 pounds in a week. And to top it off, my fundal length increased from 22 cm to 25 cm in 10 days.  My doctor was amazed; he figures that this growth spurt spawned the temporary hypertension, as it may have been causing some stress on my body.  He wants to see me in a week to make sure that everything goes back to normal.  Oh joy: sitting in the doctor’s office for another 2 hours while trying to entertain the dude with the scant-rancid waiting-room toys.

So to summarize:

  1. Not dying
  2. Not hypertensive
  3. Baby growing
  4. No stretch marks
  5. Matthew was still tasty
  6. If you have no friggin idea who Matthew is, go back and read this.

  1. I am so happy your not dying! It so easy to overact when pregnant, I can relate! I cracked up when I got to # 5. Still can stop the wondering brain.

  2. Pregnancy-induced hypertension can be a bitch! I had it with both pregnancies and it’s no fun! I’m glad you don’t have it and the doctor’s explanation sounds about right. Also? Take any cold medicine? It will do the same thing in the BP area. Blech.

    Doing great!

  3. Glad you and the baby are doing okay. Good luck keeping little dude entertained in the waiting room…that was the worst for me when it got down to the once a week visit. i was grumpy, Woodrow was grumpy it was no fun at all.

  4. Yikes! I would freak too. I had to go back & catch up. I had pre-eclampsia late in my pregnancy and gained 12 pounds in 1 week! Sucked, sucked, sucked.
