I was told to come back 1/20 (the day after my bday) to get the results, etc...
Wednesday blood pressure was 136/86 (a little better) blood work results came back normal, no protein in urine.. thank goodness. Schilling decided to put me on house arrest until Friday. He wanted me to relax and see if my blood pressure would get back down to normal. He told me that due to my auto immune disease that he was very shocked that I've been doing so well..up until now. I have an 80% chance to get Toxemia. If the blood pressure does not go down, then he mentioned maybe taking Lilly at 32 wks. HOLY COW!! That is 3 wks from now.
I told my work and thanks to my wonderful co-workers.. they put together an amazing shower for me. Russ drove me to work Friday for the shower and then off to my dr app with the specialist. Everyone at work came together and we were well taken care of. Our stroller/car seat combo was there all put together, diapers, tub, clothes, gift cards, essentials to get us through the 1st month or so, etc... It was amazing. Here are a few pictures :)

After the shower, off to my app. We had to wait around a bit, they were very busy. Went back and left a urine sample.. and might I add... I can't stand when women go before you and leave their sample right in the middle of the tray. There is no room for you to leave your cup. So I decided to move the cup over and the door slammed on my arm.. and there it all went. Thank goodness it was mine and I didn't spill it all :) haaa.. I had to hurry up and clean up the mess. Yuck! Blood pressure machine here I come... 155/96!! WHAT? How in the world. The ultra sound tech told me to go lay down, let's look at your baby girl and that will help relax you. Lilly has to do a bio-physical every week now. They want to make sure she is growing and maturing like she needs to. Tested her muscle mass, her practice breathing (saw it go up and down) and a few other things. She passed with flying colors.. A ++ Go Lilly!! She will be an A student ;)
After the ultra sound and getting amazing pictures (saw her chubby cheeks) the nurse brought the blood pressure machine to me and did it on my right arm. 144/84. A little better, but still elevated. Yeagley wasn't too worried about the blood pressure because I didn't have protein in my urine. She suggested that I work from home or work part time. My work doesn't give us the option to do that.. or might I add.. MY BOSS! So that was out of the question.
She said she wanted me to work 1 wk at a time and come back Friday to see where I'm at. If it's still bad, then I'm done. Home/bed rest here I come. We are praying that Lilly can remain in her warm home for awhile and I won't have to deliver early. God is in control and has been in control the whole time.
Russ bought me a prenatal massage from Schilling Medical Spa. Might I add.. AMAZING!! It was perfect and I was so relaxed. I could do this every week :) haaa
Please keep us in your prayers, we know God is in control
More to come...
