So I just need to vent for a moment. Hope you ladies dont mind
I went to the midwife on Tuesday and my blood pressure had significantly increased. They tested my urine for protein and didnt find any so they sent me home just telling me to take it easy. Wed. I started to get dizzy at work and was getting a headache so I decided to call the midwife and get checked out again. My blood pressure was still going up (now at 142/102) I havent gotten my test results back yet, but they have put me on bedrest until the baby comes.
I feel like I am so close. I have had hard painfull contractions on and off since Saturday. My system has been flushing itself like a mad man
And on Monday night I got this burst of energy from nowhere. It was the best thing in the world, I could touch my toes again and do stretches!!! Went for a brisk mile walk! I havent been able to do that stuff in months.
And now after the midwife checked yesterday and swept my membranes to get things moving, I am 4cm and 80% effaced, and feel like I am going to be stuck in this bed forever! (To all of you bedresters out there. . .you are amazing and wonderful women!) I just keep getting my hopes up, and then nothing happens. I know that I am being ridiculous, because chances are this baby will be here in the next week or two, which is definately not forever. I am just feeling ultra sorry for myself today.
Thanks for letting me get that whine out. Just need to put it somewhere.
