It's been a heck of a week, to say the least. I hadn't even had a chance to update on yesterday afternoon's happenings before the next round of issues arose. To put it simply, my blood pressure continues to be a problem (181/111?!) and L&D and I are becoming close friends.

I currently have a bottle of pee collecting in my refrigerator.

I spent a few hours getting IV pain medication in L&D last night while Matt was at work, cell-phone-less, with no way of being reached until 9pm.

The swelling continues.

I'm on blood pressure medication.

After handing over my bottle of pee to the nurse (gotta keep it for 24 hours! including trips to the hospital), I promptly vomitted my dinner everywhere.

NST's twice a week.

Delivery by 38.5 weeks, but that was determined before the L&D trip, so who knows if that will stay the same.

Follow-up today at 3:45. Matt is coming along. We're hoping for the I word.

It's a darn good thing I'm not working, what with the 4 trips to the doctor and 3 to the hospital this week.

Can you see how I would be ready for this baby to be here now?

You poor thing...I too had to do the 24-hour collection...not fun, but worth it if it means keeping LB safe!

Keep updating when you can, and I will be keeping my fingers crossed that they utter the "I" word for you. Let's mean this little girl and get you back to yourself already!!
