Health Update & Randomness

I managed to make it to my blood pressure recheck last week,since hubby took the girls on over to their dental check ups.  Unfortunately I had to wait an hour to get the recheck done as they work on a number system.  Hubby was done with the girls, they had come back and to play and they were about to drive over to my dr appt and wait outside. Yes that is correct, they had their 6 month check ups, played and yet I was still not done lol The good news is that it was 131/60 which was down from the 140/90  the week before, the dr was pleased so I was on my way. 

In a couple more weeks I get to go for my nasty glucose test and also to get my 2nd rhogam shot for this pregnancy.   Of course it was scheduled for a Tues morning but I requested off so hopefully there will be no issues.  I've been quite sick since going back to work in Jan, I can't seem to kick these colds I pick up at school.  So due to this and my bp issues I am trying to figure out what to do in regard to how much longer to work.  I honestly could quit now, but am trying to hold out another month, but just two days week is so exhausting to me. We'll see how it goes. 

I've been asking around about the 3d/4d ultrasounds that friends have had, and I am definitely interested in doing this.  However it is around $120-$150 out of pocket to do so, ouch. I still think its worth it though.  This is my last pregnancy, I would like the girls to see, they weren't allowed in for my 20 week ultrasound and also to ease my mind it is indeed a little girl I am carrying around. I am going to talk to hubby about it more, but I think he'll say yes.  

I am still irritable so if I bite your head off, I am sorry!

Thanks Devan! :) Hubby said yes, so it's just matter of scheduling and paying!
