Back in the Saddle Again

Hi, friends! So, I may be blogging more than usual over these next weeks as I have been given strict orders from the doctor to "take it easy". Yep, high blood pressure....again. This happened with Luke, but it wasn't until I was a little further along. Good grief.
When they took my blood pressure Monday, it wasn't dangerously high, but just high. So now I have to go in weekly and I just got through doing a 24 hour urine analysis. Sick. There's nothing like collecting samples of my "deposits" in a huge orange jug for a day straight. I'm supposed to find out the results of that test today, as they are checking for protein in my urine. Good grief.
As many of you who read my blog know, I am a busy-body. I often have more than one thing going at a time, and I am definitely a little high strung. I have been at this taking it easy thing for 2 days and I am about ready to go batty. But, as a good friend reminded me, I'd be even battier if I had to be on bed rest in the hospital or even extremely batty if I had to deliver this baby now, at 32 weeks. Therefore, I am resting. Good grief.
Bill has been awesome. He does the laundry, brings it to me, I fold it. He has really taken over with Luke in the evenings. I'm doing the best I can with him during the day. Maybe having a 2 1/2 year old has landed me some high blood pressure. I'm sure that has a little to do with it! Have I said "Good grief"?
Anyway, keep our family in your prayers and please e-mail or call...the Lord knows that I will need some different activity during the long days. To boil it down, I need to keep resting for another 5 weeks, until I'm considered full term. Please pray for this goal. Pray hard.
Good grief!

I hope you don't go too batty trying to take it easy there! But what a great excuse to make Bill do everything!!! hehehe...

I know I'm a ways a way, but please let me know if I can do ANYTHING for you!!!

Love you and you and the baby are in the prayers!!

I don't think blogging at 5:45 am is considered taking it easy there missy. :) I'm praying for you. AND I'll be checking up on you.

love you.

Yeah...the time is incorrect. I just finished a blog and it said 5:23 when it's really 7:40. Don't worry, Mom, I'm resting!
