As many of you know, I had a bad visit with Satan Midwife last week. I was experiencing shakiness, pounding heart and dizziness. My blood pressure was 142/78...which was elevated. The midwife I saw had no words of comfort but instead made me even more scared about what my body was doing. I saw my regular doctor today to go over my bloodwork and I have a clean bill of health. My blood pressure was 124/78...YAY!!!! He found fluid in my ear which he believes is the culprit to my dizziness. The shakes and pounding heart have gone away and he said he has a strong suspicion that it was my body reacting to my new hormones and I was unintentionally having anxiety about it and also that my body is getting used to my new diet..or lack there of . 16 days and counting until our first ultrasound

I am so glad that you got a clean bill of health. Being pregnanct is a very stressful time, and it can have some crazy effects on our body. I hope you don't have anymore scares!
