We made it back last night but I have felt horrible so I'm just now getting back on. My legs were so swollen it felt like the skin was about to rip. I really think I could have accomplished my appt over the phone instead of wasting a 6 hour drive one way, paying for a hotel, eating on the road, paying for dog boarding plus loosing my mind with all 3 kids in the car. My BP was still up at the appt so she added a BP med to the one I was already taking 2 times a day, I only gained 4 pounds in the past month which is good, the baby sounded pretty good and that was all that went on. I will say it was one of the quickest appts ever. She made a comment that the High Risk and Genetics drs had said they were going to try to find me a dr up here so I wonder if she put in as little effort as possible since she thinks I will be switching soon. It's been over 2 weeks and I still have not heard from anyone about an appt so I don't know what is going to happen. I have a month until my next appt so maybe I will hear something soon.

wow 6 hours!! i hope you can find something closer...that is crazy!! on the bright side...uneventful appts is better than one drawn out with any bad news...my last one was a quickie also so i know what you mean but that sucks that you had to drive so far and make all the overnight arrangements for it so hopefully you will hear from them soon
6 hours is a long car ride! and with 3 kids in the car! I am surprised you are still sane. It's good that everything sounded good with baby though. Sorry you are feeling so sore. Hopefully you will get some relief soon. I really hope you can find a closer doc. That trip is not gonna get any easier!
