Good for you, Joanna. I hope that however much time you have left before your c-section that it is smooth sailing (if bedrest can be considered smooth sailing!).

I had a doctor appointment today and it went pretty good. My BP was acceptable while laying down. I've been on bedrest the last few weeks and it seems to be working. I had another NST and it went well and was reactive. The doctor and I talked about dates for my c-section again. It is currently scheduled for April 25th which would put me at 39 weeks and 1 day and I asked if I really have to wait that long. He said this Saturday he is on-call at the hospital and that if I come in then with elevated BP he will deliver me. I also started another 24 hour urine test today and if it comes back at 300 or greater he said he will deliver me right away. The protein in my 24 hour tests has been at around 250 the last 3 weeks so I don't know if it will go up or not. MY BP goes up and down so I don't know if it will be high Saturday but I feel better knowing that the end is in sight and he isn't going to make me wait if he can find a reason to deliver me. I made it to 37 weeks today and I am very pleased with that. No preemie for me. [:D]


Update 04-13-2007
Well I was a little afraid I would be delivering the baby today, Friday the 13th and I thought to myself well if he comes today I can always name him Omen, lol.

It looks like we will be trying to have a baby tomorrow. I will be going into the hospital and if my blood pressure is high which it has been lately then the doctor says he will go ahead and do the c-section. I will be 37 weeks and 4 days pregnant so this kid will have exactly one week longer of baking time than Elijah did. At my doctor appointment today I was having contractions show up on the monitor but I didn't really feel them. I'm not dilated at all. If the baby is born tomorrow he will be sharing his birthday with my nephew Andrew who is turning 14.

Wish me luck for tomorrow and any prayers you want to send my way are always appreciated. I'll will update when I get home from the hospital. [8D]
