First day of School and my Dr. Appt..

This was first day of school last year.

And this was this morning..these pics are not good because they were taken with my phone.

I had to drop them off at 7:30 because I had to be at the Dr. in Little Rock by 8:30 and I gave myself time to go inside with them and for traffic. They could care less if I kiss them goodbye on the first day anymore. They are too old for that:( Camden in is first grade for the second time, and Laiken is in 3rd, and Cade is in 4th. They had great days and they have not stop talking since we got in the car. They were starving and so I offered to cook them dinner and all they wanted was hot dogs and grapes. Yummy;)

So I rushed to Little Rock, got stuck in a wreck, made it there right on time and waited for 35 minutes to be called back. Once I got called back and did the whole hoorah, the nurse told me my BP was 156/102 :(( I have never had high BP unless it has been in late pregnancy and I did have high BP when was pregnant with Ryan. Anyhow, the Dr. came and spent alot of time with me. In December when I had labs and my pap at the post partum check up, my glucose was really high. So they made me do a one hour glucose tolerance test and that orange stuff made me queasy. So then I had to have another pap because my last one had abnormal cells and they FORGOT to call me. :( But anyhow, I have had heart issues my whole life. I have an arrythmia, a mitral valve prolapse, and a murmur. Apparantly my heart is working too hard so my BP is high. I am supposed to take medication but I don't, so they are referring me to a new cardiologist to follow me. They drew my lab to recheck clotting factors. They are going to see me back in two weeks because of the heart and BP issues, and I am going to have another ultrasound to check for clots and such. But baby looks fine!!!! I am praying that this baby just loves it in my tummy and wants to stay for awhile. ;) People who know keep asking me questions like "What can they do to prevent you from losing your baby?" The answer is nothing. It just happens. But they are going to follow me closely and I feel really comfortable with that. Thank you all SOOO much for your sweet comments and prayers, keep the prayers going!!!

I'm soo soo glad that everything went well at the doctor today!! I've just been praying so hard for you guys lately! My specialist told me the same thing pretty much. They would follow me closely enough this time that they would know that there was a problem even before I did so that maybe they could do something in time this time.

Lots of love and continued prayers!
