So I just got home after seeing the dr. I saw her first and we talked about the high bp. She wants me to stay on bedrest and same meds. So I will be spending Christmas quite alone on the couch. That is pretty depressing. But lots of visitors will probably not be good for my bp anyways. I was just a little dilated. She said to call if bp gets to 160/105 either top or bottom number. Then we did NST and did not pass that. They look for the baby's heartrate to accelerate, and that did not happen. I ate a brownie and drank a dr pepper, still nothing. His HR was good, just steady. Then we did the BPP (biophysical profile) where the ultrasound tech looks for movement. We got arm and leg movement, but no twists or turns. So we only scored 6/10 on that. At this point, it's after 1:00 and I haven't eaten lunch. During all of this Nathan was at work. While I was getting the u/s, someone knocks at the door and says that there is a man here to see me. I said, "Who is it?" They said "Motiva" which is the name of Nathan's company, so I knew it was him. It was so great that he came to see us. He was getting worried. So after we didn't pass the BPP, they sent us to the hospital to be monitored more. So I was glad to not be alone. I was getting a little freaked out. Then the baby started moving a little more and had some accelerations. Then the dr came and saw us and let us go home. So I just got home, and I'm waiting for Nathan to bring me some food. Hopefully after I eat the baby will move some more. He is not moving much at all today. We are going back to the hospital on Friday for another NST since the drs office will be closed. So things are getting crazy around here these days. The dr said we might be having a New Year's baby... For those of you who don't know, I was born on New Year's Day. I just hope the baby can hold off at least one more week. So I might be done with work. I doubt the dr is going to let me go back with this bp issue. That is a little stressful financially, but I'm trying not to worry. I'm on bedrest but dr said I can move around the house. I don't have to stay in bed 24/7, which is good, just no going anywhere or doing much of anything. Well I hear Nathan's truck. Say a prayer for us.
