Thats right. As of Friday I have been put on moderate bed rest or "house arrest." It means I can do things around the house, sit up or lay down. I can do a lot of thing around here but I CAN NOT leave!!! So, I am officially off of work until I hear otherwise. The doctors thought being a kindergarten teacher is too stressful for me right now but really I am a bit stressed about just up and leaving my classroom not being prepared for a sub, let alone being ready for maternity leave! So hopefully that feeling will go away and I can relax knowing that my 20 kiddos will be taken care of!!!
So heres the story. I went in Thursday and my bp was a little bit high but since I am now in my 3rd trimester they are now going to treat me extra special (their words). So the plan is, I go in once a week for an ultrasound to make sure baby is growing, has enough fluid, and is breathing on her own, going to see a high risk specialist and, they upped my bp med dosage. My doctor said right now everything looks fine and I have no reason to worry but if ever any of her numbers don't look good she is coming out!!It was a pretty crazy appointment and wasn't expecting it to be like that at all. I told Ben, this is just going to be one of those quick boring appointments so he didn't need to come and then it turns out it was the most intense!
