What an odd day its been today. This morning I woke up with a whole hand width (plus some) of room beneath my boobs. Last night the baby was so high up that when he moved so did my boobies lol. Now I can breath!!! Then this morning I got the terrible runs. Like going to the bathroom every few minutes for an hour.

Then there was the visit to the ER. I was sitting on my computer when all of a sudden my right eye started bugging me. Like I could see sparkles out of the right side of it. I.started.freaking!!!! Called DH and he came and got me. Found out my OB is away on holidays until July sometime so I had no choice but to go to the ER. They checked my BP and it was REALLY good compared to what it normally is at the clinic or hospital. It was a good 15/15 lower than it normally is. He checked me out and everything is normal!! Then he tells me that the meds I am on can cause visual disturbances like I explained and that it can also cause low blood sugar....which would explain the shakes I had as well. I have very minimal swelling, no headaches and no right upper quadrant pain so he said the visual disturbances were almost definitely due to a mixture of the computer screen and side effects from my meds. Thank goodness. I can breathe a sigh of relief now.

Whew. That does sound like a crazy morning! You are having a very eventful pregnancy. I'll bet you wish it were more boring, huh? I'm glad your bp looked good and that you don't have any other pre-e symptoms. Now calm down little baby! You'll be here soon enough!
