So Im home...they monitored for a bit. Had several contrax while there but nothing serious. Got baby girl to move finally. She did check me and said while my cervix was still "pretty long" I am a fingertip dialated (which I wasn't even that at 38 weeks with Cole so we'll see how things go). She also said Alli was still pretty high however at my last OB appt 2 weeks ago they found her HB a good 2 inches above and to the left of my belly button....tonight she found it dead center and about 2-3 in BELOW my BB.

Anyway i have an OB appt on Tues and he told me he would start checking me then so we'll see if anything is really going on...

I have felt like crap all day today though.....my feet and ankles have been swollen all day. I've been so tired I can barely keep my eyes open AND have had a headache all day. When they took my BP last night it was 133/70something. She tried to assure me it was normal even though I argued with her that for ME it was HIGH.....mine is usually 99-104/60ish. She just kept on insisting it was normal. Anyway thankfully my mom had a BP thing here so I've been keeping an eye on it. It was still 130ish/69-70. I plan on asking my OB about it at my appt on Tues unless it jumps much more then I'll head back in to L and D

I know it's hard but if you feel like that you've got to drink some water, sit down & REST!!!! Your twins are old enough to watch the other littles right? Put those boys to work. Feel better Mamma!

We live with my mom so when we are at home its no biggie.....I do usually sit with my feet propped up. I work though so thats when I run in to a problem as I'm on my feet at work my entire shift. Also all 3 big boys have football and we have practices or games everyday but Friday and Sun.

In fact tomorrow is the twins first JR HIGH football game Smile

I'm glad to hear everything is alright. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well! It also irritates me when nurses and Dr's don't listen to you in terms of your body (they follow the textbook numbers despite the fact that everyone is different). I have the same issue with my blood pressure (normally in the low 90's) and trying to explain to someone that 125 is higher than normal for me is like banging my head on a brick wall.
Hope everything is well and you're able to get some rest!!!!
