Monday OB appointment.

Looks like a double birthday is looming on the near horizon. My urine showed 2+ protein, the highest it's been so far. My initial blood pressure was 140/90, weight up the two pounds I lost last week......Babies looked good during the NST, but seemed to react a bit slower than my OB would like. The slower reaction could have to do with effects of my elevated blood pressure. I feel a bit off, too. As soon as I came down the stairs to leave for my OB appt, I started to feel crappy. Activity tolerance is getting to be less and less as each day goes by.

The office is going to check the surgery schedule for Wednesday to Monday. Chad is going out of town on Friday, leaves early AM and returns in the evening. I asked if we could possibly do Monday....so, hopefully I behave until then and we can hold off until Monday. Now, nothing is concrete, so please do not make plans (MOM)! Once I know an exact date, I'll share the news. Until then, we are still taking it day-by-day.

I'm to call the office on Wednesday to report how my blood pressure has been while at home, on bedrest with minimal activity.

I think that's enough excitement for now......
Later, Jennie

Jennie,
You have done a fabulous job and I know how hard it is. Especially when every day there is a different scenario. I also know the farther along you get the harder it is for you physically too! Please don't hesitate if I can do anything to help. I hope they are able to put it off until Monday!!

I agree you've done great keeping them in cooking so long - just keep on resting and know that they are in great hands and I'm sure all will be well.......

I will be thinking of you over the next week. I will be driving through Indy on Sunday and then again the following Sunday. Maybe if you have babies by then, I can stop by and see you.
