I'm too impatient for this.

My NST started out as the others...blood pressure 160/106 and protein in my urine. I had the blood draw, new IV put in, lying on my left side, yada yada yada. After two hours my blood pressure was normal and my blood work all came back ok. So they sent me home and back on strict bed rest. My next peri appt is Wed (New Year's Eve) and I'm hoping to get some answers from her. I am losing my mind and getting very stressed and I need her to put my mind at ease that my high bp isn't harming EJ in anyway.

Oh, and before I left L&D, the nurse said to take it easy to avoid any seizures with my blood pressures spiking high so much...um, way to freak out a hugely pregnant lady!!! LOL.

So now I'm off to bed. Well, at least until I have to pee again in 40 minutes :)

But please leave your comments and let me know what is going on in the outside world!!

Oh goodness-you would think the nurse would think before she speaks. Tell little EJ that he is grounded when he arrives for making you worry so much.

I hope you get some answers soon. Seizure comment was weird...what a way to scare a person!

You're almost there. You can do this. If you're a good girl, I'll let EJ wear a penis hat for one whole hour.

Of course, any longer I'll have to take him.

Hang in there you are so close. Hope you get good news Wed. and this New Year will be the best ever. Hold on little man - you will be in your mommy's arms before you know it.

Do you have a BP cuff so you can check it at home? Since it comes down when you are resting after awhile, maybe it's just the tension of going to L&D that spikes it? L&D makes me so nervous, I do breathing exercises for about 10 minutes before I let them take mine to calm myself.

You're getting so close!

Oh poo, I'm sorry things are so frustrating. Stupid nurse. Stupid bedrest.

There is no outside world right now--the week between Christmas and New Years we're all sitting around eating leftovers and staying out of the cold, so you aren't missing anything!

(Hi EJ! Be a good baby and entertain your mom with some awesome kicking to let her know you're fine! Auntie Newt sends her love.)

I place my bets on a New Year's arrival! C'mon EJ, your mommy is so over this pregnancy!!!

Thinking of you!!!
