Yesterday was a long day. I was up all night with nausea and a stomach ache and I just knew that Matt had to come with me to my appointment in the morning. We are trying to save up his days for when little Fletcher is here, but I did not feel like going alone yesterday. So, he was planning on taking a half day. We got into the doctor around 9:15 where my blood pressure was taken and it was the highest it has been yet. Not terribly high, but 140/90 I believe. Doctor V checked my cervix and I was nearly four centimeters dilated and 75% softened. I was then rushed to labor and delivery where we thought we would be staying until we met the little man. That wasn't the case. Blood work was done to see if I had preeclampsia and an IV was inserted since they thought I would be sticking around. We sat, and sat, and well, sat. Three and a half hours later my doctor finally came in to say that my test had all come back okay and asked if I wanted to be induced later in the week. Originally she said it would be yesterday, but it seems that there were three unplanned c-sections taking place so I was sent home. I was told to call the doc today to see when I should come in and the day has been set...
We will be meeting Fletcher on FRIDAY!!! I go in at 8:00 AM and will be induced then if I am not already in active labor. That means that our little man will be born on Friday the 13th. He's going to be a little shit, I just know it (just like his Daddy ;)! So, if I don't go naturally by then (I have been having some intense contractions) we will definitely meet him come Friday.
We are beyond excited, and of course VERY nervous! :)
Friday already? That means Mama M's Five Question Friday!
1. Are you a neat sleeper or a messy sleeper?
I am a neat sleeper. I do move from side to side (more now that I am pregnant) but I am not one to be all over the place. Luckily my husband isn't bad and is a pretty quiet sleeper, most of the time. I do let him know when he starts moving a lot. When I am half asleep I am kind of crabby and I definitely don't have a problem voicing my opinions. I am sure he LOVES that!
2. Fill in the blank. I wish I was more ________________.
Organized. I try and I go in spurts with being organized, but I am just not one of those people that can easily do it. I like having a spot for things, but always keeping those said things in their spot is not always easy!
3. What is something that you wish you had been warned about?
All the crazy symptoms that come along with pregnancy. Sure, I knew about morning sickness and swollen ankles but there are SO many other things that people just don't tell you (until you are actually pregnant and can't do anything about it, ha!).
4. What was the best thing you ever found at a garage sale/flea market?
Easy. We bought this green glider chair for Fletcher's nursery and I am in love with it. It is so fun, so retro and so comfy. I absolutely LOVE that chair!
5. If you could have any meal brought to you right now, what would it be?
Hmm, probably my mom's homemade spaghetti. It is so good! Actually anything she makes is so good. I also was MacNiven's grilled cheese with spicy aioli. Mmm!
