OK, here is the dealio:
Doc said she emailed me, had her assistant call and checked my lab results all within half an hour today. she didn't get my message from 8 a.m. To her, it looked like she was being incredibly responsive. To me, it looked like I just wanted a call from HER (not a nurse) and I couldn't get that.
Predictably, I cried a lot at the appt. Unpredictably, she did too. She said it really bummed her out at the thought of me thinking she didn't care about me (follow that?). She said she loved having me as a patient and loved my spunk. :) I said I'm really nervous and anxious and seeing her every week would really calm me down. She said no prob and agreed I've had a rough pregnancy, especially with the freaking GDM being all over the map. We hugged. Twice. Once with my pants off, which you know means we both meant it.
Now for the bad news: my blood pressure is very high (149/92). They checked it twice, and sent some lab work in, and I have to go back in 90 minutes for another check. I'm swelling like a mo-fo, so I guess it's possible that preeclampsia is here. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Send me good vibes that it's not. Then again, if that means the baby comes out sooner, maybe that's not such a bad thing?
