I have been on hospital bedrest.since.Feb 27. We are inducing next Thursday unless I destabilize between now and then..for the.most part.my pressures.are.great.as long as I am down and quiet. Simply chatting with my friend about nothing and my systolic has spiked as high as 180. So I am supposed to stay as still and quiet as I can. I still get.'why I am here' feelings when I have these.gorgeous readings but I know they are only when I am doing my best imitation of a bump in a log. There is no way I could stay so quiet and calm at home. Is probably just end up back here.

Baby is still looking awesome. Failed one part of the bpp but it was just the practice.breathing..and no one is concerned since the.nsts are always perfect.

Keeping my fingers crossed for a few boring and uneventful days. Bed rest can be very tiring ;) people look at me strangely when I say that. But after 5 days in bed I wanted nothing more than to be done with it.

I sleep on and off all day. Nurses say they see it all the time with moms on bedrest. They sleep more and more. Of course I was up until 2 last night with headache.

Glad to hear you have made it so far but I hope you are feeling better today.

Only a few more days, how exciting! I bet you can't wait!
