Okay I have my 22/23 week appointment today at 11 am.

They are "interested" in my frequent headaches and they will do a u/s to be "sure" its a girl (u/s tech was not sure)

I imagine I'll do a urine test to check for protein. Anyone batteling headaches? I have a bad one maybe every other day and then everyday I have a mild dull annoying head pain....hopefully its just par for the course, we'll be able to rule out preclampsia if my blood pressure is still good (its been good so far) and not too much protein in my urine, so wish me good luck

Hope your appt goes well!! Since you are going in, mention the urge to push, etc to them. I know, I know... you don't like vaginal exams, but it might be worth it.

Yep, I have headaches too, but I think it's from exhaustion. I have horrible insomnia lately...

Baby is still a girl, haha absolutely NADA between the legs, haha So I will be on my lavender, spring pretty color shopping binge in a matter of weeks

Baby is very active, she must have gotten a kick out of the Fruity Pebbles I had for Breakfast

Baby is actually kicking and rolling around everywhere right now.

I now have a fav nurse, her name is Jamie and she ROCKS!

now my BP is high and I have gained 10 lbs since Jan 30th....so Iam kinda pissed about that, I told her I was having a rough week I mean literally every day a new stress!

He said we'llsee how it goes with the headaches

cervix is closed, everything looks ok says he

so all in all I am doing well, my going home orders: relax.....yea right!

Yah for your great appointment. And although it's not alwys possible - YAH!!!! for a Dr telling you to rest more - far better that being told to get moving - lol.

I think you should convinve Dh that you need regular massages - from him & a professional. I was a massage therapist for a long time & it's great for stress & BP - so it's not such bad advice to take
