Back Home

Well, I'm back home for the time being. Here is a picture that M took of the room. I'm probably blogging in that picture! The baby continued to pass all of his monitoring with flying colors and my blood pressure went back down to my normal 117/78. Since my urine was clear, they let me go home. I go back on Monday to the specialist for an ultrasound and to my regular OB for a non-stress test. In the mean time, I am laying on my left side as much as possible, drinking TONS of water, taking my blood pressure a few times per day and doing kick counts. That sounds like a lot, but the days stretch out and I am trying to focus on what is really at stake here. Ironically, I am on yet another 2ww!! This is by far the hardest one, though. I am constantly worried that something will happen and I won't know it. The next two weeks can't go by fast enough.

Thank you all so much for your support. It really helps to read all of your comments. I will try to catch up on blogs today. I hope everyone is doing well.

m so glad you're back home!! Great news! Take it easy! And as many have said to me- try to enjoy the rest a bit, since after baby arrives, you won't be getting much!

Thinking of you!

I am glad to read that you and the baby are doing well. I am sorry I did not check on you earlier. I did not even know you were at that hospital. Glad that you’re home now. Take care!
