What, no news from our grads last week????????!!!!!! How are you all doing? Laura have you had your baby yet? Maybe that's why you're not here? And the rest of you? Appointment, updates, news? Prayer requests?

sorry i havent updated in awhile! im 34 weeks and 4 days today. been having a lot of issues with my BP. i was taken out of work on wed by my doctor. if my bp continues to be a problem, she may induce me at 38 weeks. we will see. i had another appt today. BP was high at first 160/80 then they rechecked and it went down to 130/92. we talked for a bit, she was contemplating putting me on meds. then she asked me how i felt overall and i told her i feel fine. so she said as long as i feel ok, she wont medicate me because then it could bring it too low and make me feel worse. but she still wants me out of work and resting, and monitoring my BP at home and logging it for her. she asked me to come back monday and see her in L & D. she is on call. then she asked her secretary to call and make an appt for me at the perinatal unit for a NS test, ultrasound, and consult with the doc there. so we are going to do that instead of doing the NS test in L & D. i had an ultrasound scheduled for nov 12th and was kinda annoyed that it wasnt for another 2 weeks, and when i told her it wasnt for another 2 weeks, she said no thats not ok, we will get you a closer appt. and she did :) so im really excited to get to see stella again! we havent had an ultrasound since 20 weeks. and most likely i will be seeing the doc 2x week now till we deliver.

i really dont like being on bedrest, because it just makes think more about the stuff i still have to do and im feeling anxious that its not done. but my mom is going to do her best to help me. she said if i rest tonight and tomorrow, she will take me out later tomorrow to finish up my returns and exchanges i have for the baby. and then there are a few things we stil need to do in her room, hang a few things. then i just want to make sure i have my bag packed, and the carseat set up and ready. and there are still several things i need to get that we didnt get from our showers. mostly little things, onesies, monitor, etc. so its not much, but its important stuff and i feel like i have no time! :) but i know rest is the most important thing for both of us right now. so thats my update for now! hope everyone else is doing great :)

Hi Melinda, sorry you're having such a rough time. I pray that you'll get over the pneumonia and that what's left of your pregnancy and the birth will go well. Keep us updated and let us know if you have more prayer requests.

Hi Kara, Great to get your update. I've been following you on facebook too! It's great that the doctors are taking great care of you. I can imagine being on bedrest must be pretty frustrating. Although from what I saw on facebook, your BP seems a bit better now? Anyway, keep us updated and let us know if you need prayer for anything. Great picture of Stella, looking forward to seeing her after she's born!
