After 2 full days of modified bed rest, I think I'm finally finding a rhythm.
I get Miss O. up in the morning, get her breakfast, dressed, and on the bus. Then I usually take a nap, get up, eat lunch, and spend the afternoon surfing the tv or reading blogs until the bus drops her back off.
Surprisingly, I'm not as bored as I thought I would be...of course, it's only been 2 days.
It's really nice to spend time with Miss O. If nothing else, it's giving me some quality time with her, one on one, before we turn her world upside down.
I headed in this morning for another NST. The babies look good, but as always, they were kicking the monitors and ducking away. My blood pressure was much better...I think the last reading was 124 over 65. I must be doing something right!
With the little bit of research I've done, I'm guessing the reason I was pulled from work is because of the "trend" of my BP. This whole pregnancy my BP has been hanging out anywhere from 106 over 60 to 120 over 75. Last week, the bottom number was up in the lower 80's...and this Monday was 88. This, coupled with my lovely swollen feet and ankles, is concerning enough for my doctor to want me to rest.
I'll admit, my "cankles" look better than they have in weeks...the tops of my feet are still puffy, but not as much as they were.
Next chance to leave the house? Saturday, for another NST.
