doctor appointment

This morning was yet another appointment. Everything is going well. They had hard time, again, finding the heart beat but the baby stayed still long enough to get a rate of 155. We have an ultrasound on the 27th, which feels like too long, but I'm sure we'll manage. My blood pressure is a little high, but they figure it's due to the stress of the appointments.
Other than knowing that the baby has a heartbeat and is moving around, other good news is I have only gained 1 pound, even after the cravings of onion rings, mexican pizza and bean burritos from taco bell, chinese food and bbq pringles (not all at the same time). YIPEE!...I celebrated by having Mexican food.

Oh good. I hope that everything continues to go well. Your weight gain is amazing. The 27th does seem a long ways away. It will get here quick though. The summer days always fly by.

yummm, onion rings. I love those. I always loved the fact that I could eat bacon cheeseburgers, fries and shakes 6or 7 times a week when pregnant and only gain 10 pounds the whole pregnancy. Not lovin' the fact that I have extra weight. Thoughts, prayers and onion rings!! Love you!

I am glad that things are going well. I know what you mean about the high blood pressure due to stress. Mine was high at first but now, I am more relaxed so it doesn't seem to be a problem. GREAT news about the weight gain!!! I wish I could say the same thing. But my doctor has not mentioned anything to me about it yet. Oh and I craved the Bean Burritos too from Taco Bell at first too! How funny! I think my mom did too when she was pregnant with me. LOL

I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions. I lost a daughter last year to another defect and I am so nervous and shocked again! I will send you my email if you don't mind sharing some info. with me on PKD.
Thanks
Melissa
