YOU GUYS!!!
I cannot believe it, BUT...I passed all my tests again!!

B/p was 157/100 on my back upon arrival. Then 5 min later on l/s 138/85, the 131/80, finally 120/70.

So the bedrest continues.
Urine was negative, bloodlabs were good.
Sugars were higher, which they anticipated.
I am increasing my insulin by 2-5 cc's to see how it effects me.

So, the next step is my regular weekly OB appt. on Thursday at 36 weeks!!!
Nst friday, and nst/afi tues, b/c of holiday monday.

Wow! We are still in shock.
Luckily, Mom will be here tommorrow so that my babygirl can see the light of dayand splash in her pool.

Love you guys,
I'll KYP.

Thanks,
I'll update here after the appt.
I am getting a little anxious. Fear of the unknown, I guess.

I did see some floaters today- but nothing major and no headache.-It passed quickly- probably paranoia, but I will still mention it.

I am going to try to relax;)

Thanks guys!!!
Love, jennifer
