Alright, here is the latest most up to date information for all you blog followers and friends!
I am 39 wks and 3 days today. Since last nite I have been feeling very nauseous, in fact, I threw up last nite. This morning, I was still very nauseous. So I headed to the doctor for my weekly checkup and as soon as I walked into the waiting room, I began to feel light headed as well. They took me back and my blood pressure was HIGH, I'm talking 140/90. yikes! So because of my high blood pressure, light headedness, and nausea, my doctor sends me to Labor and Delivery Triage to be monitored. Apparently when your blood pressure gets that high this close to the end, it could be very dangerous. So they hooked me up to all these machines and monitors, do bloodwork, and have me get yet another sonogram. Three hours later, all the results showed up normal. Baby girl was super duper healthy and measured in at 8lbs 4oz--perfect size! Thank goodness!
However, because my blood pressure was as high as it was, my doctor informed us that the longer we wait, the more dangerous it could potentially be. Soooo...onto the BIG news....we go back tomorrow nite to begin the induction process! We will head the hospital tomorrow nite around 6pm to get this show on the road!!!
It is so surreal. We will have a baby to actually hold and squeeze and love in a matter of days. It is crazy to think that this road of pregnancy I have been on is about to come to an end. It has been a long and hard road, and we are so ready to meet this little baby girl. (Say a little prayer for our dog, Duke, he has no idea whats about to happen to his world! ;) )
Saty tuned for more updates. I plan on bringing my laptop to the hospital tomorrow nite to help pass the time! We'll see how that works out. :)
