I love my Doctor!!!!

Well, I have had a very stressful week. I have gone to the dr. 3 times in one week, had three different drs, and each dr has told me different opinions about my condition. This really stressed me out because I hd no idea which dr. I need to listen to. I ended up calling my dr. that afternoon. He called me back yesterday afternoon with some great news. He is letting me off of bed rest and told me that I can go to the beach next week. He is a wonderful dr, not because he is letting me up but because he took time out of his day to call me to let me know what is the best action for me. Many drs would have had their nurse call but he called me himself. I love him. He is great!!

When I went to the doctor Tuesday, I had an ultrasound, a non stress test, and I met with the doctor. The ultrasound showed that my baby girl is already 6 pounds. The nurse said that this means she will be about 9 pounds when she is born. I just don't know if I can handle delivering that. I guess I don't have a choice, huh? Other than that, everything else looked really good. Her fluid levels are good and her development both looks
good.

I will be 35 weeks on Saturday. He says that I don't have preeclyampsia but I have gestational hypertension which can lead to preeclyampsia but I am not spilling any protein so I don't have it yet. Please say a prayer for me that I will have a safe week at the beach and can make it home before this baby comes. I really don't want to have the baby at the beach. I am going in for an NST (non stress test) this morning at 8:30 just to make sure everything is still going well.

Jennifer,
I am so glad that you get to go to the beach! Have a great time!

Oh, I was reading one of your previous blog entries and you were asking for name suggestions. What about the name Briar? Someone from my adoption board just named their daughter that and I thought it was so beautiful!
