It has been an interesting week. 4 trips to labor and delivery, 2 appointments with my doctor, and lots of unknowns. My blood pressure numbers have been all over the place. As of now, I am on bedrest to keep these numbers down. Right now things seem pretty stable if I am always down, but my doctor said things can skyrocket for no reason and take a turn for the worst. In that case, we could have a baby any day, but if things stay the same, we are aiming for 37 weeks or more. So, it is pretty weird not knowing a real timeframe. (I am almost 34 weeks)
They say this happends in 7% of all pregnancies and it is just the way your body is reacting to foreign tissue in your body. The only cure is to deliver the baby... There is nothing I could have done to prevent it from happening.
It is pretty exciting that I could be meeting my little baby soon! But, I am most worried about her having to come too soon! We would love to have her with as little NICU time as possible.
But all is well from the bedside! I just feel bad for not being able to help Evan out more. It is weird to just be lazy everyday. And if you have any suggestions of TV series, activities, or other things to occupy my time, let me know!
