I am on bedrest. Last night it was scary high- 172/105. Today it is 133-142/80. I believe my Bishop's score is in the 3-5 range. Thanks for the c-section birth plan referral!

Spent the night going to the bathroom every 60 minutes, resettling, drifting to sleep, having alarms/nurse/IV...

I was up walking from 1:30 until 5:30am...first outside on the curb and sidewalk alternately (I think I got her back down head into my pelvic region, body straight) and then for two more hours at the Walmarts. On the upside of being at the Walmarts at 3am...I got cord to string my birth bead necklace finally! So now I have a project to do although I don't think I can do that and walk simulataneously. DH and I were wracking our brains for how I could sleep standing up. ...
Congratulations! Jenne
