So I went to get my iron shot this morning. (I've been going 3 times a week for several weeks now.) I mentioned to the nurse that I had quite a bit of swelling over this past weekend, moreso in the right foot. So I asked her to check my BP (which has been a problem in the past). It was high. So the midwife decided she wanted to do an appointment today instead of Friday since I missed my appointment last week. My BP came down a bit after lying on my side for a while, but not enough. So she put me on bedrest and i have do 24 hour urine and go back in on Wednesday. I'll be 39 weeks on Wednesday, so I'm at the end here, so it's not the worst thing. I still have several things to get done here at home, but I'm not super-worried about that. But I am a little concerned that this will lead to talk of induction. I guess we'll see. Hopefully, this baby will just come in the next couple days and there will be no worries.
