Yes friends, I have joined the ranks of Kelsey, and soon enough will also be a mommy of three. Kinda of scary, right?
We’ve known for a little while now, but I finally had an appointment on Tuesday, where I got confirmation via ultrasound. Today I go back for another ultrasound to confirm the due date, but according to nonscientific calculations, I should be exactly 12 weeks today and due July 25, 2014.
Currently, I’m feeling pretty good. I get extremely tired in the early afternoons, but other than that, I can’t complain. I was feeling pretty nauseous for a couple of weeks while we were still in the hotel, which was not pleasant at all, but that’s all passed. Thankfully!
Unlike my two previous pregnancies, I was automatically tossed into the high-risk category for this one, because of my blood pressure issues. After meeting with my doctor on Tuesday, I found out that I’m not really high-risk, I don’t really have blood pressure issues, and he wasn’t even sure why I was started on blood pressure meds to begin with. Oh well!
The doctor assured me that high-risk pretty much only meant I’d receive some extra special attention, and that he wasn’t overly worried about my condition. Since I’m considered high-risk, I’ll probably have appointments every two or three weeks versus every four to six weeks, and for the last few months I’ll have to go in twice a week. The only thing that worries my about that is that the hospital is a tad far, and the parking (as with everywhere else in Hawaii) is kind of ridiculous. So far, I haven’t had any issues though.
