I feel a completely changed pregnant person. I actually made it past 10 am without once thinking of how tired I was – because I wasn’t. I kid you not, but for the first time in about 10 weeks I felt good. All thanks to Adalat.

Hypotone  wasn’t controlling my blood pressure at it should have. My diastole just didn’t want to drop below 100. That’s when my doctor decided to put me on Adalat. She warned me that I’ll be feeling terrible. Her exact words were along the lines of “If you think you feel bad and are tired now, for about a week you’re going to feel like crap!”. Urg, and I did.

Two days ago was the worst though. On top of the tiredness I was felt lightheaded and a like I had a cold coming, even a bit hypoglycaemic. But most excellent news was that my diastole dropped to 83. 83!! Doc sad my body would take about a week to adjust to normal blood pressure; since it had to cope with high bp for so long.

I felt so good today! I hit up several shops and bought some craft supplies. I’ve had all these ideas, but absolutely no inclination to start (or if do I don’t finish it) and just thinking about hunting down the supplies and preparing a work space and making time to craft… just couldn’t be bothered. But I can feel that THAT has changed.

So I raise my glass of tap water, and crack a silent nod to glowing, crafting and smiling the rest of this pregnancy.
