This morning I went to work for about 45 minutes, then I took off for my 36 week check-up. My blood pressure was a little high (141/92) and my doctor decided to run labs and do a non-stress test. So, I have some markers for preeclampsia and she ordered me to bedrest. I am able to get up for the bathroom, fix a sandwich, and take a shower (quick one...good-bye clean shaven legs!). That's it...no laundry, no chores, no nothing!
I go back again on Thursday for another check-up after a non-stress test. My doctor is then going to decide when this baby is coming. She said she will not let me go past 38 weeks, which is Thursday, March 19. So the bedrest thing won't last much over a week at most.
I'll keep you posted. Tomorrow I plan to do a post about Caeleigh's birthday weekend. We had a really good time. She was so excited about her new DS games (Barbie Fashion Designer; Imagine Wedding Designer, Imagine Babysitter, and Ener G Gym Rockets) and some Littlest Pet Shop toys. Nana came up to help with the party and had a sleepover with her. Then on Sunday Sean's mom, aunt, cousin and her family came over for a small family gathering. A very nice weekend, though I was wiped out! More details tomorrow!
