Rest you must

15 Dec

so I made it to 36w6d without any bed rest. until now. went to the hospital this morning for another shot to strengthen wiggler lungs. in slippers. in -7 degree weather with 18+ inches of snow on the ground. i asked to have my BP checked while the wigglers were monitored. higher than yesterday. the incredible nurse was concerned and started checking my reflexes (they were brisk?), noticed some specific swelling around my eyes and said I was just looking not so good. so she called my dr and ordered more labs. essentially she didn’t think I would be leaving today. BP readings remained high. wigglers kept moving around like usual. labs were borderline so I was sent home on strict bed rest until medically required induction on Thursday morning. with specific instructions to just come back if anything changes. of course the wigglers may have their own plans in the meantime…

Yay for defining family and their awesome beta today!
