- The first time my blood pressure has ever been up in my entire life. It was just slightly elevated (I think the number was 146/86). The doctor was not concerned about it at all since it has never been high only low so I am not concerned yet. We did go by a very cheap blood pressure machine tonight since I have been having bad headaches recently.
- Secondly, it was the first time they could not find one of my babies heart beats. But again, I was not concerned because I had just felt him that morning. There was an old ultrasound machine in the room so she just started it and I got to see my little baby. He looked great! His little arms and legs moved all around and his heart beat was 140. I am referring to the baby as a boy because usually 140 heart beats means boy and usually 160 heart beats means a girl. It can change a lot but the heart beat usually stabilizes around 16 weeks or so. I will not know for sure that it is a boy till July 20th. She could not tell on the old ultrasound machine what the sex of the baby was. We are so excited! I cannot wait to meet this precious gift from God.
