I haven't been updating much this week, as I've been home, resting.
On Monday, the doctor decided that my blood pressure was high enough that I shouldn't be working, I should be home. I quickly agreed! I completed a 24 hour urine collection, we'll see if there is enough protein in the sample to warrant moving up my scheduled C-Section by two weeks. I'm pretty sure there will be, as my blood pressures have been high. Well, I say that, but they've been high everyday at home and not as high at the doctor's office.
I will take any extra days that the baby wants to stay in! We hit 36 weeks tomorrow and I am very excited that the little guy is taking his time getting here.
Aside from the blood pressure issues, everything has been fine. My Biophysical Profile Ultrasound on Monday was great. The change in his diaphragm/breathing in a week was amazing and his movement was strong and easy to locate. The technicians like it when babies cooperate and actually do their 30 seconds of practice breathing up front.
Today I go in for a Non Stress Test and hopefully that is all. I am feeling pretty good this morning, so let's hope that's a good sign! I'll also get the results of the 24 urine! Ew. It was gross...
