Had Dr's appt this morning, I've been feeling bad since last Tuesday, swollen legs, hands and face, headache, seeing stars and spots. They took my bp this morning, was very high. They sent me to L&D for monitoring, hooked up to machines for a few hours. Baby is just fine and all, my blood pressure is wacky though.

So, I get an ultrasound this week, on bedrest until further notice, we talked about maybe having to take the baby out via CS early because of my bp. I told her that I would be full term in a week and a half and if bed rest keeps my pressure down, I really want to wait until at least then. She agreed as long as my pressure stays at least borderline.

So, all and all, this is just a repeat of what happened with dd. I was fine till month 9, then everything just weirded out. But it's ok, as long as the end result is a healthy me and a healthy baby I don't have any problems with it.

mama!

You are so close! At least it's only a couple weeks of bedrest, and not the whole nine months! (Though I'm sure that thought doesn't help much right now. ) Glad the babe is doing well, and I hope everything works out the way you want--here's to a happy and healthy mama and little one!
