I'm behaving!!!... I guess you can say it was most likely nerves that set off this round of high BP numbers. After coming home and really thinking about the day I really think it was because I walked the bridge, didn't have a chance to sit down and collect my thought before being called back for my NST. Then failing the NST and dealing with the nasty tech with ultrasound just made it all the worst.

So after laying in the pool this evening my BP was just fine and I can go on with myself just checking it three times a day.....oh well, back to beddie for me....

How high was your BP that they wanted to admit you? My little guy regulary fails his NSTs and as long as he gets the full 8 pts on the BPP, they aren't too concerned? How often are you taking it at home? You better behave, girl! Sorry, we won't be having c-sections at the same time, I don't think my doc will go for 35 weeks. She said 36, so maybe a week after!!

Oh, T! You keep us on our toes! You stay in bed-you hear. I can't believe it is only 3wks away! Yay! I am so excited!!! Don't you hate that non-reactive NST but, then that sweet little one passes the BPP and everyone breathes a little easier (me included :)). Hang in there, T. Good news and bad news...

7/14 - 32 weeks update....

What a day.... It was a day that I almost was admitted but promised to behave and lay around on the house or in the pool (yes, I still have permission to be in the pool as it lowers your BP) My day started off with an NST (which we FAILED) then a BPP and Ultrasound (which was to be today anyway) which were both fine. Casey is now 4 pounds 5 oz and everything looks good with him. Fluid is back down to a normal level so they were very happy about that. The only thing they weren't happy about was my BP. It was a little high (even for me) the doc went back and fourth on what he should do but said I knew the sides and I had to promise to call ASAP if anything was happening otherwise it's sit in the hospital for 2 - 3 weeks. We did discuss the wonderful shots today and decided not to do them until we know for sure what's going on. I do have labs to do tomorrow morning and if things look a little crazy they will admit me and start the shots and etc.

We finally have a date...[:D] Amino will be done either the 4 or 5th and the c-sec (if everything is ok) will be on the 5th!!.. That makes 3 weeks!!!! I can't wait I'm to a point I just want Casey here!!!!....

So good news and some crazy news...
