Well, what a fun day...
I'm home and the babies are still baking...thank goodness.
M. and I weren't sure that would be the case, in fact, we were told that we might be saying "Happy Birthday"!
I headed in for my doctor's appointment this morning with Miss O. in tow. My blood pressure was up, I gained almost 3 pounds since Tuesday, and I was still spilling protein, again. Enough to have my doc send me straight to labor & delivery for a NST and blood work. Her final words to me, "You're 36 weeks today, I'm not going to hesitate to take these babies at this point.".
After calling M., and having a quick cry, we headed home to meet him and head up to the hospital. Once there, they strapped on the monitors, drew some blood, and took my pressure. The babies looked good on the monitors and my BP wasn't nearly as high as at the office, and best of all my blood work came back okay!
I don't think I've ever been so happy to be discharged! I just wasn't ready to have these babies today. I really want them to have at least another week to grow and chunk up, you know?
More resting at home was ordered, and I will do just that...
