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!

Steph! I had no clue you were so far along, that is crazy/awesome. Sorry to hear about the bed rest though at this point I would be ok if it happened to me, I need an excuse to quit my job early and lay on the couch watching America's Next Top Model reruns :) We had a little scare too, I just found out I have gestational diabetes! It was scary but it should be under control with the right diet, our baby Ryan is going to be big too, so let me know how that goes! Oh why didnt people tell us that pregnancy isnt all rainbows! Im glad that you're going to be ok. Have fun relaxing before you cant anymore.

Wow! That is so fun that you can see Bristol's baby hair- and not fun that she is growing so fast! At least she is healthy right? I am so excited for you and hope that everything continues to go well. Let me know if you ever need anything! By the way- what are you guys going to do this summer?

SO she'll be born before I get home...darn. Hopefully that book I got you will keep you company on the couch. :) Love you!
