Spanner in the works
So yesterday I had the appointment with the registrar... A registrar is something between a midwife and an obstetrician.
She was really really lovely. There was a student Dr. with her who was really nice and it was great that she had to explain things to the student, so I got a little more information than usual.
All was going well till they checked my blood pressure... 145/100 OUCH! not good... Bloods taken, and I was sent off to the day clinic for a day of observation...
I was devastated. I couldn't stop crying. I have had the best pregnancy. I feel great.
I was hooked up to a fetal monitor. Passed with flying colours. BP checked again... Still high.
I was then sent for a urine test... Fine. A little protein, but fine. BP checked. Getting better.
I was then sent for an ultrasound. This I was excited for! A chance to have a sneak peak at Buggy! She is prefect! current weight around 2.9kg's and all looking really well. BP checked again. Better again!
Results from bloods back. All good. Meet with the obstetrician Woo Hoo! Allowed to go home. At 2pm.
I just need to take it easy and rest up.
I am allowed to do stuff. But just take it easy.
So I went to Bras and Things and picked up 3 maternity/feeding bras for $7 each!!! total RRP for these bras would have been $160 !!!
And they are nice! Have some lace and are really comfortable! I'm happy!
I also had a more than desperately needed haircut!
Feeling a lot better today.
Went to a breast feeding clinic/class at RPA this morning and I'm feeling a lot more confident!
Can't wait to meet our little girl!!!
