Default On bedrest :(

Well this stinks! I'm sneaking on the computer now because I can only be on my left side so much before I go stir crazy!
I went for my check up Monday and my bp was about 160/95 then she had me lay on my left side and it went down to 138/80. So needless to say, I'm done with work and on bedrest. I have yet another 24-hour urine collection to do
and I go back Thursday for a biophysical profile ultrasound to make sure everything is fine with the baby. They are supposed to check out Morgan and her breathing, etc and check my fluid levels and whatever else they do in this ultrasound. Then after that I'll be at my midwive's office for an appt. The goal from Monday is to at least not delivery Morgan until I'm 38 weeks, so 2 more weeks. And I'm hoping its not a c-section, but whatever is safest for us both will be fine. So not sure if I'll be able to update on Thursday after my appt, but I'll def. try and keep everyone updated.

So crazy how I went from having a great normal, healthy pregnancy to my BP just shooting up out of the blue. Darnit! LOL Take care and everyone stay nice and healthy! And Chandy I'm just as bored as you are! LOL

Oh what a bummer!!! I hope everything stays within healthy ranges now and you can survive the bedrest. Luckily it's only a few weeks at most. Now get back on your left side, young lady!
Oh and... you're the only one I was counting on to go all the way to mid-September with, please don't ditch me!!
