38 weeks and 2 days pregnant. Bed rest. Not how I would like to end this pregnancy.
After two months of dealing with high blood pressure, it has continually climbed and we are now just waiting until I get to 39 weeks. I am on bed rest until Friday when I see my doctor again and we decide if I will be induced this weekend. I am really, really hoping that my body is ready and I go into labor on my own before my appointment. My doctor gave me hope that it is not only possible, but likely that the baby will be making an entrance in the next 48-72 hours, but who knows.
My poor little guys don’t get it at all. It is absolutely unacceptable that I cannot travel up and down the stairs every 5 minutes and hop up for endless cups of juice and milk. And I have to say, I am a terrible at bed rest. Because I, too, find the whole thing unacceptable.
I know that I am lucky that this hasn’t been the going on for weeks and I really only have a few days to suffer through.
I would love if you will keep our family in your thoughts as we are getting through the next few days and welcoming our little boy into the world 🙂
