We have a heartbeat!

We had our first ultrasound yeaterday. Everything looked good with our little white blob - heart beat and all. Everything is pretty much on track for growth right now at 7w4d. So that's all good.

BP on the other hand is not so good. It's a little on the high side all of a sudden and it's been GREAT up until now. I've got an appointment with my internist next week - I'm very glad about that. I'm sure it will mean a higher dose of Labetelol - but I'm completely OK with that as long as it means my BP will go back down.

I'm sure it doesn't help that the rest of my week has been insane. In the furniture industry there is a week long trade show twice a year called Furniture Market. If you live outside of NC I'm sure you've never heard of it. It is an amazing gathering of furniture manufacturers and retailers from all over the world. It used to be a lot bigger than it is now...thanks to China and a crappy economy. But it's still pretty cool to walk around and see all of the designs you or your team have worked on for the past 6 months out there on display.

But now that Furniture Market is over it's back to business... getting ready to show the "new" line in May and June and finishing up the December line at the same time.

There just isn't enough time in a day.

Yay on the heartbeat!
Condolences on the high bp . . . hope they get that figured out soon and without too much trouble!

The labetalol seems to be working for me this time.... I hope a higher dose does the trick for you (although I really, really hate that drug, it is the best for pregnant high bp-ers like us).

A heartbeat is awesome! Congratulations! Aren't the little ultrasound baby blobs the cutest things?

I'm so glad that you saw your little one and all is well! That is great news!

High BP... Not groovy. Mine is higher than it should be too. I hope that things get straightened out soon- for you and me both!

Yay! Yay! That's all I can say. So happy for the heartbeat.
