So remember in my last post, about how I would finish everything up and take pictures? Well, as of this week, that idea won’t be happening. 🙁 I got placed on modified bed rest due to pre-eclampsia. What is it? It’s a pretty “normal” pregnancy complication, which effects me and not as much the baby, unless it goes undetected. It is generally diagnosed after you have high blood pressure and protein in your labs… I only have the latter. Other symptoms are horrible headaches, nausea, vomiting, pain, swelling, vision changes, and in its worst state, seizures. Luckily, I’m pretty mild at this stage, and I have none of the associated symptoms, but it’s still hard to deal with. The last doctor I talked to said they just want to get me to the 17th of January (or 37 weeks). It’s crazy. We, possibly, have less than a month until she makes her arrival. I’ve started having some Braxton Hicks, and I think she’s starting to drop, so I’m happy for these little signs that we’re getting close, especially if I have to be induced.
I’m pretty lucky that the planner in me got a lot of things out of the way before this happened. I have most of the nursery organized and just need to do massive amounts of laundry. My mom had already asked to help when she’s out here, so now she really has no choice 😛
We just bought my new mom car
and attended and hosted holiday parties.
Most purchases for baby girl have been made, and we had just done a good cleaning job of the house. So while this is a big bump in the road, I can get through it, even though I’ll need help.
Maybe it’ll make me blog more 😉
