Appointment today

So, apparently, my blood pressure has decided it doesn't want to stay down. Today was 142/94 with small amounts of protein in my urine.

No sugar in my urine though-so that was a good thing. I have lost a lb...bringing my total pregnancy weight gain to just over 1 lb. Luckily, it doesn't seem to bother Dr. Lowder much! LOL

Baby sounds good. He is head down already, confirming my guess that he had moved and that was why I had lost half my belly! LOL

I was told to take it easy over the next few weeks and we will see how my pressure and urine are at my next appointment.

I am so glad that he is not quick to rush to any quick interventions or suggestions of what needs to be done.

That is it. Picture to come soon!

ok, for those that have asked

We've received requests from friends and family asking what we want or need still for baby Harrison.
This is what is left on our list.

* A diaper pail. Diaper Champ or Safety First

* Rain Forest soother

* Size NEWBORN prefolds from Green Mountain Diapers

* Longies, size small

* size small proraps cloth diaper covers.

* Nice thick hooded towels

* Lansinoh disposable breast pads

* Paul Mitchell baby shampoo

I hope that helps!

32 weeks already

So, tomorrow is the big day. We hit 32 weeks in this pregnancy and I cannot believe how time has flown by!

I am on light bedrest right now due to contractions that I was having pretty regularly last week. I am hoping that we are seen on Wednesday that I will be released from that! I also am really sick and had to get on some antibiotics to kick it, and I am starting to feel a bit better

My blood pressure was up Friday. 140/92. That worries me. The last few births I didn't start raising my pressure until closer to delivery (about 37 weeks) so I do not like that it is high already! Hopefully with all this rest, it is going down and I will get good news Wednesday.

So Harrison has turned position. He is no longer laying trasnverse (sideways) which is good. I am not sure if he is breech now or vertex (head down) but I will ask Dr. Lowder. The bad news about him turning is that due to my anterior placenta he is all in my back, right on my spine and hips which is causing me more pain in my SI Joint problem . I also have lost half my belly! LOL and am not looking nearly as pregnant as I was.

So my friend Darcy asked for a picture of my new funky glasses. I promise to have one tomorrow along with new belly pictures!
