Oh, fudge!

At my appointment today, my BP was higher than usual. (135/90) They did recheck it after letting me lay on my side for 10-15 minutes, but it was not any lower. Darn it! And things were going so well!

I had a non-stress test, which showed a happy baby. Heartbeat is good, and he is moving well. I was then sent to the lab for blood draw. I hopefully will get the results tomorrow. Depending on the results, my OB may want to see me more often. (Like this weekend.) No signs of labor. (Darn it, again!) No dilation at all. He actually seems pretty content to stay in there a while longer.

Will post more when lab work comes back. Until then, I have doctor's orders to rest. Can I just say I really miss being active?

I am sorta jealous of being able to do nothing, much much better then working! Rest up and watch some Christmas movies :).

eek...you are definitely in my prayers. Hopefully your LO will decide to show early and you won't have to keep worrying about your BP....at least the NST was good.

Merry Christmas!

Rats. Resting is no fun when you HAVE to do it.

Happy baby is good! Don't miss being active so much it raises your BP.
