Baby Update...

As you know, yesterday was our first day back to school. Honestly, I never thought we would make it BUT we did! I am glad though because my sweet sub and I were able to meet our kiddos and spend the day learning with us. We had a great first day, the day went very smoothly, especially for the dreaded first day. I woke up that morning feeling pretty good, by the afternoons my feet are the size of Texas and I start resembling a penguin when I walk, it just hurts! It really is a funny sight...

After school, I had my 4:00 appointment. My sister met me there and we giggle as I waddle to the elevators! She thinks it is hysterical to watch my misery!;) We went back to get the normal weight/blood pressure check and my blood pressure was UP AGAIN! My results came back with protein in my urine, so BACK to Labor & Delivery we go for more monitoring!

Little man had not been moving a lot that day, but usually when I am walking and busy he isn't as active. When they put on the monitors he started having his very own dance party in there. He can not stand when they put the straps around my belly.... he goes CRAZY! After about an hour of monitoring, he looked perfect, thank God, and my blood work came back normal. After a discussion with the doctor, we were sent home. 
We are scheduled to go back Thursday morning, which going in the morning will allow me to see my doctor. I am sure a plan will be made this time, fingers crossed. By the way, we still had NO progress... he is still snug as a bug in there.

My doctor was not thrilled with me trying to go back to work in the first place and the blood pressure/protein scare again... Lee and I decided it would be best for me to stay home, rest, and take care of our little man as well as mommy... just not worth the risk

I will definitely update when we have a plan... maybe we will have a miracle and he will decide to come on his own! Anything is possible, right?! :)

Have a BLESSED Tuesday!
