The doctor's appointment went well today. Little One was very active, but the doctor was able to narrow the heartbeat down to between 140 and 150. Little One does NOT like that doppler being put on my stomach.
My blood pressure was UP to 114/62. Of course, I had just had blood drawn and the woman made me really nervous. Then she couldn't find a vein and she poked at me way too much - on both arms. Within 60 seconds of that experience my blood pressure was taken, so I count that as the reason I had a blood pressure high enough to almost be normal.
The doctor said my blood pressure, weight and measurements were perfect and all looked well. I have been feeling great, which is wonderful.
I had blood drawn to test for diabetes and anemia. The doctor said I would hear either today or tomorrow if there was a problem. Otherwise, I wouldn't get a call at all. I didn't hear anything today, so I am going to believe that all was as it should be.
We are starting to get very busy around here - Christmas parties and Christmas traveling. My Pain Management Nurse had to cancel our appointment for tonight because she has the flu. SO, we ended up with a free evening at home. It has been very nice. Tomorrow night I should be able to take pictures of the new stuff for Little One and get those posted.
