How are you feeling? So ready to be done with pregnancy and meet this little one!
Anything exciting or that concerns you lately? My blood pressure has been a little elevated and we've been trying to reduce it through diet and exercise. I have another check tomorrow and if it's not down then I'll have to consult with an OB and possibly not get my birth center/water birth. Trying not to be too stressed about it.
Have you tried magnesium/calcium supplements to help your BP? When I'm pregnant, I can only drink water and eat mostly a raw high protein vegetarian diet, and must have mag every day or my BP gets out of control!

I was induced with my first two because of my BP and had to have mag during labor, and when that didn't work, I got the epidural, which helped enough till the BP went down.
