22 weeks - and a check up

Ok so I tried to post this on Friday, when it was fresh but blogger was being stubborn and I haven't been on the computer since!

Today was my 22 week appointment... relatively boring.
He measured my belly, listened to the baby (HR @ 140) and sent me on my way with this nasty little orange drink. I did learn that my blood pressure is a little elevated... 138/72, where I am normally around 110/60, so we are going to keep an eye on that. I guess it's a good thing I'm an MA, my aunt is an LPN and my grandma is an RN so that is covered! lol I am also up to 145 lbs. (from 125 pre-preg)... 10 of that has been in the last month.
So my next appointment is April 7th... the day before my birthday. It is the glucose/blood draw and pelvic exam appointment that they wanted to do ON my birthday but I wasn't having it... last year, I spent the morning in the drs office confirming that I was in fact miscarrying... I'd like to enjoy my birthday this year!
