Bed Rest

I have spent the last 4 days on bed rest because my blood pressure was high last Thursday when I was seen at the hospital to make sure that I was not leaking fluid.

When I was released from the hospital Thursday night, I was instructed to follow up with Dr. N on Tuesday and to be on bed rest until then.

During these last 4 days on bed rest I have found myself more rested than ever, ha! I watched every lifetime movie entertaining enough, got tons of fall/decorating ideas from HGTV, and discovered at least 15 different recipes for fall that I need to make from the Food Network! I am pretty sure that I will be at least 10 pounds heavier by the time that baby Jett comes due to the fact that there are so many new things that I need to make, ha!

I was up bright and early this morning for my follow up appointment. I made every attempt to stay as relaxed as possible this morning to try to avoid any increased blood pressure. As I sat there patiently waiting to be called back I prayed that everything would be fine. I prayed that my blood pressure would be normal, that baby Jett would still be great, and that I could be released from bed rest to return to work. All I wanted was to be able to continue to carry this sweet baby and get ready for his arrival.

My prayers were answered this morning, Praise the Lord! My blood pressure was below normal like it has been through out my pregnancy so far {113/76} and there were absolutely no traces of protein in my urine from the 24 hour test! I almost started crying I was so thankful and excited!! I was released from bed rest to go back to work tomorrow and I don't think that I have ever been more excited to go to work, ha!

Thank you to all of you that prayed for me and sweet baby Jett! Now that things will be back to normal around here I need to get back to regular blogging! I still have to do some weekly preggers updates along with updates on the nursery decorating...super exciting!

  2. Wonderful news! I had high BP with my first, and was on modified bed rest the last month or so of my pregnancy with him. Thankfully I haven't had any issues with this one!
