I wish I had posted on Christmas day because we had a wonderful Christmas. The last 3 days though I have been so sick. Nausea and vomiting. I figured I ate something bad but was still feeling yucky this morning. We had our normal midwife appt today that took a wrong turn. My blood pressure was 155/90! (High blood pressure can be a symptom of pre-eclampsia also called toxemia) So, she did the non-stress test and I worked on relaxing (sometimes my bp is high when I’m stressed). When she took it again it was 148/something. I had to go to the Birth Center for a bunch of blood work and more fetal monitoring. I was there for 4 hours and during that time my blood pressure went back to normal (112/74) and my blood work all came back good. The fetal monitor showed a healthy and very active baby! I don’t know what happened today but it scared the crap out of me. I go back on Wednesday to monitor my blood pressure and in the meantime my bedrest has been stepped up – more rest and lots of lying on my left side (which hurts like hell because of my shoulder injury – ugh).
