I had a 32 week appt with my ob today. I am measuring 46 weeks, my thighs are so swollen they are painful. I also have a crazy rash on my legs/arms - but the dr said since it's not on my belly it's ok so far. I also let her know I've been really nauseous lately, so I got medicine for it. Funny aside, the pharm made sure to tell me to be careful it might make me really drowsy...tis ok since I'm on bed rest. lol
My first bp reading was over the boarderline @ 147/89. After measuring and baby hb's she took it again and it was going down 136/86 maybe. She called my MFM and talked with her about the bp and queasiness and they agreed I should go ahead and go in. 3 hours later, all is fine and I'm sent home again. My bp got down to 117/60-? They said I did have a few contractions, but I'm still not certain what they feel like. Nothing painful that's for sure. I did have some low back pain, so I wonder if that was it. I also wonder if it was just the babies moving under the contraction monitor and kinda faking it out.
So, at the end of the day - no matter how much I wanted to serve eviction notices I was sent home to incubate some more. I do know mentally it is the best thing, but physically this is really starting to take its toll. One a good note, DH said when he comes down next weekend he may just stay and start his telecommuting b/c he knows we're getting closer and closer.
Hang in there with me Jennie and all others!
