*le sigh*

Okay so on Tuesday my blood pressure was up slightly.

My OB threatened to put me on bedrest which would suck because I have two weeks of leave left before I have to start using up my 12 weeks of Family Medical Leave.

I have seven weeks till the Puff's anticipated arrival date. I would much rather spend those twelve weeks when the Puff is on the outside.

I went back on Thursday and my BP was up a little bit again, but when I was lying down for the fetal monitoring, my blood pressure went down to a little lower than normal so all was well.

The nurse says that I am to stay off my feet as much as possible, lie down as much as possible while I am home, and lie down for 15-20 minutes three times a day while I am at work.

I work in mental health, we have plenty of couches in the office, and I have an very understanding boss, so this will not be a problem.

But if I have been neglecting you lovely people on my flist I apologize. It all has to do with the whole having to be upright for long periods of time.

And yes I am doing my best to stay hydrated and not to stress out about things and such and so forth.

And the Puff is fine. Still Nameless, but fine. He enjoys playing Alien Baby and showing off his little legs and feet through his mommy's belly. He is getting rather good at it, unfortunately his favorite time to show off is around 11pm. I try to go to bed around 10pm. Ah well I suppose I need to get used to that type of thing!

Okay I am heading back to the dinky little couch in my office for a bit more of a lie down. I will catch you when I can!

*hugs*

these last weeks are the hardest, and I'm sorry you're having to deal with other stuff along with it. But it'll fly by and you'll have a little warm bundle of love!

*pets your Puff*

Please please keep a close eye on your blood pressure. I had toxemia. Any headaches etc should be reported to your doctor right away. You should also try to sleep on your left side because that keeps circulation moving better.

*brings you some tea*

It's decafinated honest!

No headaches at all so far, and I have been lying on my left side as much as I can during the day and at night. And staying off of my feet as much as I can the rest of the time.

I was on my left side for the fetal monitoring and my BP went right back down to 120/60, So for now it is manageable. Keep your fingers crossed for me that it stays that way!
