Had a regular OB visit today.
Gained 1.5 pounds since last visit.
My blood pressure was a little elevated for the first time: 144/92.
Lily's heart beat was 143. ♥ My favorite number!
Talked with the doctor about my blood pressure and she said one isolated elevated blood pressure isn't cause for alarm right away.
Then she checked my urine.
She double checked my chart to see that I've only ever had trace amounts in the past and this is a moderate amount.
The concern with those 2 things combined is preeclampsia.
Sooooo.....For 24 hours, I am collecting my pee in a brown container that reminds me of an old rubber hot water bottle and keeping it in the refrigerator until I return to the doctor with it tomorrow. It's right next to the corn on the cob that I haven't shucked or taken out of the bag. haha
Tomorrow's pee findings and re-blood pressure check will give us some answers.
37 weeks is considered full-term and today we're 36 weeks, 2 days.
We could quite possibly have this baby.....
I'm currently washing baby clothes, trying to finish up her room, and get everything in order. Hospital bag will be complete tonight. I'm also drinking a lot of water and praying for my pee and blood pressure to be normal tomorrow. A is still out of town visiting his dad and that side of his family...he needs to be home when his baby sister is born. (That's what I've worried about most today. :( )
Ready or Not!
