Cardiologist Appt. 12.04.2010

I had a cardiologist appointment this morning and was given the all clear for the aorta - no changes since the last check up 6 months ago. ECG was also ok, but the one thing that struck me as strange was my blood pressure: 110/80.

I guess it was a leftover from the blowout on Friday ;)

Tricky Dicky

I thought that I had better start using the forums correctly - so I need a blog. Firstly this is for you all to pore over, secondly it is for me to see any changes over the course of time.

Have fun,

I also think I hit a bit of scar tissue from a previous reading because it hurt like buggery! Ho hum... Will measure again on Tuesday to make sure...

tears? Times when the fear comes back and you wonder if the end is near.

But without a countdown you… Continue

My Story

My story: I was 34 weeks pregnant(12/14/05) and developed what I that

it was not painful or really bothering me but I could not take my mind

off it. I called both my midwife and my doctor and both advised me to

take some maloxx. After being awake a...ll night because my brain was in

overdrive when my boyfriend woke up the next morning around 7am or so I

told him I was going to try to take a nap… Continue
