13 week appointment

so a couple of weeks ago i was diagnosed with high blood pressure. after some testing, my dr. (the FABULOUS dr. shah - thanks aunt julie for the recommendation!) put me on a low dose blood pressure medicine. i also have a machine at home to take my reading 4 times a day. i've never really had high blood pressure before, but often times women get it from pregnancy. today i went in for a check up and the blood pressure medicine has really brought it down! thank goodness the medicine is doing it's job! the good thing to come out of my weekly dr. visits is that i get to see baby every week too! dr. shah is amazing and now does an ultrasound every visit! today i am 12 weeks 5 days and baby is measuring at exactly 13 weeks. always moving around and he/she finally is starting to look like a baby!!


  1. Look at you go - a baby AND A blog :) Excited to read all of your updates and see pictures of your ever-growing baby bump. I couldn't be happier for you. Cheers to you and Nick!

  2. My they have come a long way with ultrasounds. I remember almost standing on my head to trying to figure out which were the arms, legs, head, etc.

    Jess, exercise is good for high blood pressure too so try to take a walk at night after dinner.
