Well, my midwife basically put me on bedrest from here on out- my blood pressure spiked earlier today to 155/92 so I think I pushed my limit of just "taking it easy". I realize that I need to do whatever I can to keep my baby healthy (and myself) but I am really stressing in my head over all the things I procrasinated until the last few weeks. I'm not ready for baby at all, and I really wanted to just nest naturally, go into labor naturally, and have my baby naturally. The hopes of staying out of the hospital seem to be getting bleaker by the day...although I am still trying to talk myself into envisioning my perfect birth.<br><br>
I go in tomorrow to get bloodwork, check urine/weight/etc...so I'll know more after that, but the best I can hope for at this point is bedrest at home, well controlled blood pressure, and a smooth delivery at the birthing center. That's what I'm going for!!!<br><br>
Now, what to do sitting on the couch?! I'm bored already LOL.

good luck momma! i might be right behind you on bedrest. my bp has been up the last couple of visits, so my mw was talking about me doing half days at work, or being on bed rest if it continues to go up. right now she has me taking calcium magnesium supplements, and taking in lots of protein to help get it back down.<br><br>
((hugs))

Do you have boxes (and boxes) of small items like photos or papers laying around the basement or somewhere? I'd station myself on the sofa with cooler full of snacks, Netflix and start sorting through stuff I know I'm never going to get through otherwise. I know it's not your baby nesting plans, but it's always satisfying to do some major clearing out!
