Time for a bit of an update I suppose. Our second child, a girl, is officially due towards the end of Nov
ember. Holly's been in and out of hospital the last few weeks with high blood pressure, much like last time.
In Australia the obstetricians all seem to consider pregnancy + high blood pressure to mean pre-eclampsia, which is very serious. Everywhere else in the world, you need high BP and protein in the urine to meet that classification and they recognise a syndrome of just high BP in pregnancy (pregnancy induced hypertension), with quite different first line treatments. They also do a whole lot less caesarians outside Australia. Go figure.
Regardless, we're ikely to get to meet our little girl in the next week or two. Holly's quite ready for it. The house is all ready. Louis is primed to meet his little sister. For now we just wait and see.
When it all kicks off, I'll be mostly updating Twitter
if you want constant updates. You don't need to actually join Twitter to read that.
