today's appt.

Today's appt was not waht I was hoping for. blood pressure is up and He said my cervix is "holding steady" but baby is totally down and engaged. which is why I have SO much pressure. he said he could completely feel baby's head. I go back on Thursday unless the pressure gets to be too much before then. Im thinking otmorrow it might! Its getting harder and harder to walk.

Sorry to hear the appt didn't go well. Sad Perhaps the world is telling you that you should slow down and take a break. *hugs*

well since I was ok'd to work I have to now pack up my entire classroom. by Wednesday at 4..... Hoping to get most of it done tomorow so I dont ahve to go in on Wednesday..... Even the kids were surprised I was back. I also measured smaller today than I did on Thurs.. which the dr said is because he has dropped so low. I ended up seeing the same dr I had which is probably why my blood pressure was up... I had a 9:45 appt with someone else and didnt get taken back until 10:40. and had to be on the road by 11:20 in order to be at work on time (and somehow figure out lunch in between) when they took me back it was with the dr that I had been seeing. I was hopign for a second opinion today. Thurs my dr is in surgery so I DEF have a different one. curious to see what HE says.

Ugh... can you ask one of the other teachers to help you pack up the classroom? There must be someone willing to help! You need to get some rest too - maybe if you sit down for a second to catch your breath, the baby will decide to come out! And if not, at least you'll have gotten a moment.

problem is we are all in the same boat... minus the teacher that had her baby on Saturday... the other preg teacher is packing while trying to prep for not being htere at hte beginning... I do have a teacher aide (who is so much more than an aide) that has been in my room all day today helping. She finished out all of my report cards for me, she finished leveling some books... and she's comingn back in my room tomorrow to help too! right now its hard bc its at a spot that I need to sort stuff and just can't. im going to try to go in super early tomorrow becasue by the afternoon the building is disgustingly hot.

Oh man, heat does not help at all! Hope things go quickly for you tomorrow and you can get done so you can have a break Wednesday. Smile
