I have been on the blood pressure medicine for 6 days now & it is working. The only side effect is DROWSINESS! UGH! I don't like not having energy and feeling like a "LUMP".
I saw my Dr. on Thursday. She showed me my lab. I am "leaking" protein into my urine but my kidneys are okay & still doing their job which is good. She is considering me to have chronic hypertension. I am high risk & will have more Dr. visits and monthly sonograms to make sure baby is okay. WHICH MEANS in just 22 days we have our next sono and will most likely know if we are having a boy or girl! HOW EXCITING! The baby measured perfect and the heart beat was 156!
My doctor is still shooting for my July 10 due date BUT...My risk for pre-eclampsia is high and if I do have high blood pressure later, the baby will come early. I am so thankful to be on the medicine & that it is helping.
Thank you Lord for getting us this far, for loving us, protecting us & for the miracle of this sweet baby.
