I've been wide awake since 1:44 am.
Even after taking two Tylenol PM to help me sleep. Oh well. I'll be having this baby via c-section at 7:30 am, then I can take a nice long nap. That's so weird to say.
I went to the hospital today for pre-admission testing. You know, where they ask you all kinds of medical questions, take your blood and blood pressure. Unfortunately, what I thought was going to be routine was much more. (Go figure. Seems I can't have a baby these days without a little drama.)
My BP was really high. At my doctor's appointment on Tuesday it was 170/90. I know, to most people (like me) that means nothing. Basically, that's REALLY high. Yesterday, I was consistently at 145/110. So, they had me come into the hospital for a few hours to monitor me. I was hoping they would just decide to do the c-section last night, but no luck.
They sent Matt and I off for the night. Which was great - because we enjoyed a wonderful dinner out at my favorite restaurant - Johnny Carino's - and then home to relax.
Now that you're up to date on the drama before the drama, I'll be sure to post pictures of Elliora Grace as soon as I'm up to it.
Sweet dreams for those of you that are sleeping.
