I just thought I would update you all on what is going on in our lives in the last few days. I have been put on bed rest for the remainder of the pregnancy (only 2 more weeks or so). My blood pressure has slowly been rising over the last couple of weeks with swelling to my feet and legs as well as some protein in my urine (I know, TMI!). Anyway, these are all precursors to preeclampsia, so instead of taking any chances, my midwife is taking me off work and on bedrest (quite a jump). I can take a shower (thank the Lord Joel is saying) and I can do one outing a day, errands, lunch out, doctor's appointments etc. Otherwise I have to be in bed or on the couch. Not exactly easy for me, but I'm trying. I have an appointment with my midwife on Tuesday. They will do an ultrasound to check how big the baby is as well as the amniotic fluid. We are hoping the baby comes without having to be induced.
Additionally, our sweet white dog, Patah has to have surgery on Tuesday. She has had an abdominal 'bump' that has been getting bigger. We had it checked out today and the vet said it is either a tumor or a hernia. We are kind of worried for her. She hates vets and we just feel bad we can't be there with her until she goes under.
We hope you are all doing well. Blessing!
