Whew! What A Day!

Yesterday was quite a day! I started having severe nosebleeds at 6am Tuesday morning and my blood pressure was really high. I was in pretty awful shape. Luckily, Mama could come over and stay with me. She took great care of me. She did everything I needed her to and more! I was in contact with Dr. Miller's office off and on all day, and finally at around 3:30... Lisa told me to come up to Labor and Delivery to be monitored because my blood pressure just refused to come down. They watched us for about an hour and luckily we were able to come back home. My blood pressures were still high, but the baby was not showing any signs of distress. Whew! Dr. Bowie was on call at the hospital and he came in to see us before we were discharged. He said that the nosebleeds are common during pregnancy, even though these were severe and he also told me that I am now on complete and total bedrest until Lucas comes.. with the only exception being the 2 doctor's appointments that we have scheduled. As everyone knows, I have been on partial bedrest since early August and pretty much self-induced complete rest for the last several weeks... so this isn't too much of an adjustment for us. I have learned to really appreciate my quiet time.... :o).... we know that it is the calm before the storm! Just wanted to give everyone a little update!
