Bed Rest Update - Day 6

Today I had a doctor's appointment to show my doctor how much I improved since Friday.  I thought I was doing better...my weight is down, my swelling is better, but...

My blood pressure was higher than he would like and he thought my face looked too swollen.  Because of worries that this might develop into preeclampsia, I have to see him again in 2 days and possibly will be checking into the hospital to have Jack sometime this weekend!!!

Normally this kind of news would put me into a frantic state, running around doing last minute errands and going into house-prep overdrive, but I can't because I'm still on BED REST!!!

Luckily my mom has been so, so helpful by running around doing errands for me and cooking meals...thank God for her.  Without her, I would have probably given myself a heart attack by now. 

Looks like there might be a chance that our May baby will end up being an April baby...maybe Jack heard how crazy May is for us and wanted a birthday month dedicated to him only!  Smart kid.

  1. Ah! I had hypertension (that turned into preclampsia)... It's no fun being so swollen! I feel for you. Hope bedrest continues to help and all goes well when Jack comes!
