Eep!

Well, now it’s time for some excitement!

Went to the doctor yesterday, and based on several factors, he is admitting me tomorrow for the duration. Hopefully that duration is at least two weeks, but we’ll see. My blood pressure is starting to creep up, my ankles are just getting more and more swollen, and (here’s the fun one) I gained 17 lbs in 11 days. So, yeah, it’s time.

As soon as he walked in the room after reviewing my bp, weight gain, etc, George and I both knew what he was going to say. You could just tell by the look on his face that he wasn’t giving me great news. But really, I don’t consider it bad news. I’m happy to do whatever to make this pregnancy last as long as possible. It definitely sucks not to be at home, but it’s a small price. Goodness knows I’ve had it very easy compared to most of the stories I read about triplet pregnancies.

So today, some friends are coming over to visit, I need to pack, and George and I will spend some time together alone. (Mostly I will just make him scratch my back for several hours to make up for all of the scratch-free nights I have ahead of me.)

Thank goodness the hospital has wireless access, so I will still be posting and all that. Woo!

PS Funny – the doc measured my belly, and if I were having just one, I’d be 47 weeks pregnant! tee hee! Silly.

    Sounds like you have done so good so far! Stinks to have to be admitted, but like you said, it’s the best place to be. And it won’t be for too much longer! Looking forward to seeing what the next few weeks have in store! Hang in there!

    Congratulations on doing sooo well and going so long with your pregnancy. You sure do seem to have a good attitude about it! I went 39 weeks with my twins, and at 38 weeks I measured 48 weeks and was MISERABLE! I was just so tired of not being able to sleep, and having people stare at me while out in public wasn’t fun either.Good luck, and I hope you keep cooking the babies for a while. Hope that your health remains stable, and can’t wait to read about your babies arrival!

    I’m thinking of you! I hope that things continue to go well and stay uneventful for a few weeks… Maybe some time off of your feet will get those symptoms to disappear!! Prayers coming your way!
