Happy Halloween!

Today is lots of things. Halloween, 32 weeks, and I just got done with my doctor's appointment.

The doctor's appointment was fine. I forgot to ask how fast the heart rate was, but it sounded very fast. We talked about my side, and she thinks it could be rib pain from all of the expansion in my belly, but it could also be my gall bladder. Because it tends to hurt worse after I eat, this is a symptom of the gall bladder issue. We should have a better idea on Monday when I go for the ultrasound. Even if it is my gall bladder, there is nothing they can do for it until after the baby is born, at which point they will refer me to a specialist. Apparently pregnancy can sometimes cause problems with your gall bladder. In the mean time, it's just going to hurt.

In other news, they did this scary thing again (they did it last time, too) where my blood pressure was high when the nurse took it the first time, and then they took it again, and said it was fine. This time, the doctor took it two times in my room while I was laying down. She said it was fine, but it was sort of scary having them do that. I don't understand why it can come across as high at first and then normal the second time, but I guess that's why I'm not a doctor... :)

I hope everyone has a fantastic Halloween and gets lots of candy! I can't wait to see pictures of all the little ones in my family in their costumes. Maybe I'll be creepy and camp out somewhere in our neighborhood and watch all the little kids in their costumes. I can't wait for Hosey to be here next year. We'll go trick or treating... Even though Hosey won't be walking yet.
