Me and the Couch
We had a doctor appointment this morning. I've been having quite a few Braxton Hicks contractions this week and I was hoping the doctor would tell me that I was close to going into labor. Well he still thinks I could go into labor in a day or a week. Unfortunately though, my blood pressure was high today...so...I was told to go home and take it easy!
I was actually surprised that my blood pressure was high - last week it was only 110/70 and has not been high at all through my entire pregnancy. It has always been perfect...until today. So the couch, Dax and I will get to spend a lot of quality time together this weekend and until I go back to the doctor first thing Tuesday morning. I guess we'll see what he has to say then!
The good thing about being home is that I can actually rest - something that I have not been doing much of this week. It seems like I am only sleeping 3-5 hours each night, so hopefully I can get some good rest before the baby comes. I'll certainly keep you posted on the progress, but until then, I'll be on the couch!
