Operation Baby Watch

Highlights from my 39 week appt this morning:

*down one pound from last week
*BP up higher than they would like
*Baby's heart beat was 156bpm
*I passed the Non-stress test
*cervix very soft but not dialated enough to really start anything down there, lol.

I go back on Monday for a BP recheck since it's been textbook for the whole pregnancy and now that's it's higher, they are a little concerned. My Dr did say that it's very unusual for someone on their 5th fullterm pregnancy to develop toxemia, when they never had a problem before....unusual but no impossible. They want to keep an extra eye on me :)

The nurse said that maybe I would go in before then...yeah, fat chance, lol.

Baby girl was moving all around, doing her thing...8 days and counting....

Dropping a pound is a good sign, so "they" say. lol. I laugh at "them" haha. (As I furiously pop EPO capsules).
Praying your BP goes down.

Wow, it's hard to believe you're almost at the finish line. Take it easy on that BP. Rest, rest, rest.
