My blood pressure has been hovering around the 140/90 mark ALL DAY. I've taken it super easy. It was up yesterday, but I totally was overdoing it, so I wasn't surprised. But today? No reason.

I'm getting a massage pretty much first thing tomorrow morning, and DS will be with a sitter until about 11:30 or noon.

He has been a super pill all day, so perhaps having the morning off from mothering him, and focusing on caring for myself and mothering the one in my belly will help get my bp back down!

wow....I keep telling myself that I can hold on for a few more weeks, but I dont know if my body will
