April 29 birth day

My doctor asked me to get my blood pressure taken today bc I had a headache when they called to check on me. I did and it was 149/92. When I reported that back to the office, they sent me directly to the hospital.

After a few hours of monitoring, etc . . . I was sent home on complete bed rest until Sunday morning when the baby will be born via c-section. She is doing great, but the concern is my safety.

Prayers are appreciated. I have a lot of thoughts about this -- but the bottom line is that I'd like to live to raise all my children -- so a c-section it is.

Will post next week again when we're home from the hospital. Please pray, too, that I find a way to find people to care for the boys while I'm in the hospital and that I can find some help when I come back home. DH won't really be able to take much, if any, time off and I'm scared about my recovery without help.

  1. Oh Melanie, you are most certainly in my prayers. It must be awful having this anxiety about being unsupported at a time when you need support most.

    Praying all goes well, but also that this anxiety doesn't overshadow your meeting your daughter face to face for the first time :-)
