In case you didn't know that we're having a baby...since--you know--I never talk about it or anything...we are.
Except instead of happening in a week and half like my "due" date says, we are having it Thursday (unless she decides to come sooner).
Here's the scoop. At my appointment last week my blood pressure was slightly elevated and my face was very puffy and their was some protein in my pee. All those fun things put together equal something called Preeclampsia (you can click on the link if you want to know more about it...otherwise I won't bore you with the details), which happens to some women late in pregnancy...and basically if there is something that can happen...it's going to happen to me. So I was ordered on bedrest (in case you have been wondering where I have been) where I have been in between lots of doctors appointments, and one trip to the hospital (because I was sure the baby stopped moving...she didn't, I'm just paranoid). So all the labs and tests tell me the baby is fine still, but so as to not tempt fate, my doctor is inducing me on Thursday.
Kind of anticlimactic to know ahead of time when your baby will be born, but totally insignificant when compared to their health and safety. And Preeclampsia is not anything to mess around with. Mine is very mild, which is why we are waiting till Thursday. But we are excited and can't wait to meet our little girl! And no we haven't decided on a name yet. Don't worry, we have some ideas.
We'll keep you posted!
