for the last three weeks, i've been a little high on the whole protein/swelling/bp scale for me. nothing that's crossed a line or gotten any worse yet, but am only 38 weeks (fully expecting to go 42) and want to keep my happy homebirth plan. i see my backup (hosp) midwife today...and am just getting over a cold, but have been taking it waaaay easy. my homebirth midwife was (as always) very reassuring and said that everything is still fine but "don't get any worse" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"> she also said if my hosp mw visit was less than happy, then she'll stop by tonight as well.

Yeah, try to think "My BP is normal" over and over again while they are taking it just to keep it from going up due to being nervous. I have a bit of white coat syndrome and I always have to do this.<br><br>
I really hope that it stays normal for you and that you get your homebirth. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/goodvibes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Goodvibes">:
