Thanks for thinking of me . I have been a bit rough lately...but to be honest I am pregnant...I can't really complain can I?
Blood pressure is now 'seeming to' stabilise or so the midwives say! At it's lowest though it's still 140ish over 90. Headaches and sparkly bits still here. Protein is 'trace' apparently and my feet have swollen right up and now includes my legs to my knees.
Went to see a consultant yesterday....what a biggest waste of time ever. She just told me everything I said was 'normal' - don't these people realise some of us have never been this pregnant before so don't know what to expect?
She talked down to me like I was a little girl and obviously not capable of having a child. I only asked for help with my headaches and swollen feet!
I was asked to go back on Friday to see the consultant again and see a midwife next week but I refused, I said I was fed up of them wasting my time, making appointments with me at home and not showing up etc etc
Yes I've probably just rambled on there, for which I'm sorry about LOL! I'm just a little wound up.
I have started using Clary Sage, Pineapple, anything to help things along. The Clary Sage is strong but things seem to be moving in the right direction!
I've decided to just get on with things myself as I don't seem to get any help from the NHS! The only worrying thing is what happens if soemthing happens to my baby! They're covering their backs now by writing in my notes that 'i chose not to attend suggested appointments'
Ok I'm calm now!

I've had braxton hicks since about 24 weeks but now they're getting rather intense...which I think is a good thing...things are moving in the right direction!!
No plans for anymore. In our eyes this was a miraculous conception anyway as I was always told I'd not be able to have any children after some previous silly overdoses (not suicidal!!) as a child. I took a few packets of my motheres pill when I was 7 cos they looked liked smarties! So since then it's always been said I couldn't. Then I had 3 years suffering from bulimia when I was 17, so again that affected things. God you're getting my life story today aren't you!! Sorry hun!
But no, no plans for more. We'll be happy with the one xxxxxxx
