Another Boring Day

I went to the doctor yesterday and they told me to not plan on getting off the couch until the baby comes. My blood pressure was high but not too bad so I think that are doing this more as a preventative measure. I guess that is good. I will now start going twice a week to have a non-stress test and ultrasound until the baby comes. This really puts a kink in my plans since we were supposed to go to the beach next week but oh well. I have to do what is best for my baby. If anyone has any ideas of good names, I would love to hear them.

Bed rest AGAIN!!!

Well, this has been a busy week for us. On Monday night my wonderful mom was giving me a pedicure and noticed how large my legs looked. I am a big girl but my legs have never been really big until now. After mom said this, I thought that I may need to go home and check my blood pressure (I had high blood pressure/preeclampsia with Price). Sure enough my blood pressure was 150/100 on three different occasions that night. I got a friend to check it the next morning and it was 147/96. I called my doctors office and they wanted to see me. There it ws 140/100. They told me to lay there for 5 minutes and they checked it again. This time it was down to 140/80. They put me on bed rest, told me to have no caffeine, not to go outside in the sun, and to eat a low sodium diet until Friday. I go back tomorrow for them to tell me more. I am having to do a 24 hour urine sample and they took my blood to check my liver. Hopefully I will know more tomorrow.

I feel like the baby is big so if they have to induce me again, I am really not to worried. Of course, the longer they put it off the better but I really feel good about the babies growth now. Please keep all of us in your prayers. It is hard being on bed rest with a 3 year old running around but I have a great sister and great friends who have been having Price over to play for the past 2 days.

Hopefully I will write some good news tomorrow.

I am finally finished with school. We celebrated with another weekend at the lake. That has become the norm for us on the weekends. We had the Rotans out on Saturday then yesterday we had the rest of the Rinker crew out for fathers day. Price gave Will a raft for the lake but he told me to take it back. He didn't like it but oh well, it is the thought that counts. Will's cousin, Dalton, has a ski boat so Will and Price spent much of the afternoon on it. Will learned how to wake board. He was on cloud nine. I am very jealous that I can't do much on the lake. I have been trying to jet ski at a very slow pace but that just isn't as much fun as flying around like Will and Price. They have so much fun.

This week Price and I don't have many plans. I have a doctors appointment on Friday but other than that, we are just going to clean the house and spend some time at the pool. I guess that is all for now.
