Nicki has been having a lot of trouble with her blood pressure running high in the last week, especially after she'd worked a shift as a nursing assistant in a nursing home.

I'm sorry to hear that she has been having BP issues, but glad that they have her slowing down - she's a hard worker and she's been doing a lot during this pregnancy! The story about her being so sad to take off her engagement/promise rings is actually so sweet; they seem like a very cute couple. I hope the last few weeks go by quickly (for all of you!). :)

They are a very cute couple... and Tim just dotes on her these days.

The blood pressure doesn't have to be 200/100 to be pre-eclampsia.

I strongly suspect that she'll end up with a pre-eclampsia diagnosis before all is said and done, she's just not there yet.

Poor kid.. Time to read all those books she hasn't had time to get to, put her feet up and rest.

Hope she doesn't go too stir crazy these last few weeks. Sounds like she's getting lots of TLC from all of you - T sounds like a real sweetheart. Let us know how her next appointment goes on Tuesday!

I hope things will go ok--maybe she will be lucky & deliver the baby early.
