The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

Bed Rested.

For at least the next few days. But, it looks like I am headed for pre-eclampsia. My feet swelled to epic proportions today. I swear people were commenting on my feet from down the hall. Then, I went down to the nurse and she took my blood pressure and it had spike to pre-eclamptic levels. So, I went for some stat bloodwork and testing. I have to do a 24 hour urine... And I might have pre-eclampsia.

I have been a good bedrester today and the swelling went down a bunch. My Mom came over to take my blood pressure and said... oh you're ankles are so bad...I was like... yeah, I was just admiring how good they looked compared to earlier today. She was like.... That's NOT good. She took my pressure and it seemed that 5 hours of laying almost completely still reduced my pressre a bunch too. So now I continue to rest and wait for all the test results.

Keep me and baby in your prayers. I am pretty scared.

Pre-e is pretty scary. I was diagnosed at 23 weeks with my last baby - and with bedrest they were able to keep it at bay for two weeks.

Keep your head up - you never know. If it is pre-e maybe they will be able to control it for a few weeks! Drink your water and just rest.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

Times like these we must be so thankful for the knowledge and expertise of our doctors. You are in good hands and everything will be fine.

Take it easy, honey. I'm thinking about you.
