Saturday is the Day!!!

We just got home from the doctor just a second ago. He is going to induce us at 7 am Saturday morning. I am really excited but still nervous. Price is going to stay with Chrissy so she doesn't have to sit at the hospital all day. Thank God for great sisters. I am already dialated 2 cm so he says that things should progress pretty fast. I will keep you posted if anything else happens in the mean time.

She is coming soon!!!

Well, I ended up coming home from the beach a couple of days early. Will came home Monday and by Wednesday, my blood pressure reached 180/112 so I decided that I needed to be at home. I know the beach is not supposed to be a stressful place but it kinda is when you have a 3 year old running around. Luckily my family is great and took her alot so I could get some rest but I still felt like I needed to be at my house. My pressure did come down some once I got home and relaxed. The weather was great and we did have a really good time.

I went to the dr. yesterday for another NST and a check up. My NST looked fine but my blood pressure was still up. He decided to put me on blood pressure medicine just to get me through the next week. He would really like for me to get as far along as possible. I got really lucky with Price that she was so perfect yet early. I go back on Monday and we are going to talk about inducing me next weekend. The thought of having 2 kids is kinda freaking me out right now. Price is at a great age where she is self sufficient. I am very nervous about starting all over. I was talking to one of my friends earlier today and told her that like with Price when she would get upset during the middle of the night, we would throw her in the car and ride around the block. We can't do that now because Price will be at home sleeping while we are tryiing to calm the new one down. I am going to have to try to come up with new ways. Please pray that this baby will be healthy. I am sure that I am not the only one that worries about their child not being healthy and something being wrong with her.

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

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.
