37th week appointment
I had my 37th week appointment today. I lost a pound, Zoey's heartbeat was 147bpm, she is measuring at 36 weeks (which he said is still good), and my blood pressure was up a bit. It seemed to worry the doctor a little bit. He started doing the reflex test on my knees and said I was a bit jumpy (whatever that means). The first time they took it, it was like 120/92. The second time they took it was like 130/82 or something like that. He said that it was still high compared to what my blood pressure has been. He told me if I start having headaches, seeing spots, or if under my right rib starts to hurt, to call him and get my blood pressure checked again. Also, I am a finger tip dilated. I go back the 17th for a regular check up. Hopefully I will make it that far! I told the doctor that I didn't want to have her before the 15th and I would be really happy if I didn't go until after Thanksgiving. He laughed. Oh well. We'll see what happens!!
