38 week OB visit

0cm dialated and 0% effaced. And she hasn't dropped. I also spilled my urine sample on the floor and cried. I also didn't realize how much it hurt when they check you. The doctor said I can start walking though. And my blood pressure was down.

I've been having a LOT of drama lately. And you wouldn't fully understand unless you have been involved in the situation the entire time. I'm hoping it can get sorted through soon though.

Christmas is approaching. I'm so excited to have the best present on her way. Hopefully she'll be here soon but mom went over due with my brother and sister so I'm not worrying about it. If I've made a happy home for her then I'm glad I could do that. :) I still love feeling her move. It's really amazing. It's getting a little uncomfortable though and I'm ready to meet her. :)

Black Friday!!!

I'm on bed rest and can't go. The first year I actually want to. I think it's because I can't and I'm a very defiant person. lol The doctors made sure I knew shopping was NOT allowed. :) We don't have any money anyways unless we went to Macy's or Khol's (we have cards for those places). O well. Happy shopping, everyone!

36 weeks ♥ 9 months preggo

So at the doctor they said if she decided to come they wouldn't stop her. I want her to come when she's ready although I'm hoping she comes a little early because I'm miserable. We finished her nursery today I'll post pictures tomorrow. :) Here's how baby is doing:

Been looking into labor and breast feeding a lot. I hope she's able to do it. I'm trying to go into everything realistically. I don't really have a birth plan except I DO want an epidural and I DON'T want a c-section unless absolutely necessary. And I want to breast feed but I realize that for one reason or another we may not be able to. But I'm going to try my best to stick with it and hope for the best.

When I went to the doctor they put me on bed rest and mentioned Toxemia/pre-eclampsia. So I started doing a little research on it. Here seem to be the symptoms of Toxemia(the ones with the check marks are the ones I have): elevated blood pressure ✓ , protein in the urine (find out Monday), bloating of the hands ✓ , feet ✓ and face ✓ due to fluid retention, and hyper-reflexia. And here are the ones of Pre-Eclampsia: high blood pressure ✓ , protein in urine (find out Monday), water retention ✓ , fatigue ✓ , abdominal pain ✓ , headaches, nausea, the inability to tolerate light that is bright ✓ , blurred vision ✓-sometimes, shortness of breath ✓-sometimes, and infrequent urination. So I'm a little nervous about the results for Mondays appointment. But we'll see. Apparently they usually induce or tell you just to stay on bed rest depending on how bad it is. Please keep us in your thoughts.

Ok that's it for now. I still don't have my thank you cards done but I did make a big dent in them. :)
