My brother's wedding was beautiful. He was the handsome groom and she, the stunning bride. They looked so in love and happy. I can't believe my baby brother (25) is now a married man...oh how I feel old. The weekend was filled with family events and good times all around. My dress came out beautifully and it managed to give me a waist! It is still so unbelievable to me that I finally wore the maternity to a wedding. There have been so many 'what ifs' over the past five years that it was a bit surreal to actually be wearing a dress in the correct size for once. During cocktail hour it was a bit too much for me to handle emotionally at times. There were many guests who I haven't seen since they heard our news and the congratulations and heart felt thoughts were overwhelming. I didn't cry, but I did need to take some time for myself. It was just another reminder of how long people have actually been waiting for this news. I am so lucky to have so many people who care about and love A. and myself.
Yesterday I had a follow-up appointment with the OB Internist to check on my blood pressure. It came in board line at 140/90. She again reminded me that between 20-24 weeks the blood pressure naturally drops and we need to see where mine lands at that point. I am to take my pressure once daily at home for the next two weeks and then go back.
Today was my dreaded eye appointment to check on the fluid around the macula. Thankfully the specialist didn't see any fluid and told me eye is normal! Such a relief. I have been so terribly worried about that needle going into my eye I have lost sleep over it. Crisis averted. Next stop...cyst eyelid draining on Tuesday and anatomy scan on Thursday!
