Bed Rest? YUCK!
SO, my last doctors appointment....not so fun. First, the lab technician tells me via ultra sound that little Bristol has nestled her head right under my ribcage. I thought it was her butt this whole time! So, just start praying she turns! Second, the lab tech informs me that I am at 35 weeks 5 days, but Bristol is measuring at 37 weeks and 2 days, and 6 lbs. 9 oz. She is a big baby already. So, the newest of news is that I will probably not carry full term, or else I'll have about a 10 lb. baby. EEEK! So, with this news I proceed to ask if a nurse can check my blood pressure. 158/98....too high! The doc rushed me up to labor and delivery for some monitoring, and because my blood pressure did not want to come down, I am now a permanent resident on the couch. SO FUN!!! NOT! Lets just hope that this doesn't last too much longer! I do have some good news, little Bristol has hair! YES! We could actually see it in the ultra sound!
