So I went to see my real doctor today, and man oh man I like him SO MUCH BETTER than the on call doctor from the weekend! Mainly because he actually talked to me, which is a big plus. When I got taken back into my room they checked my blood pressure and it was once again high. Annoying because I have been checking it at home yesterday and today and it was totally normal! They had me lay down for about twenty minutes and it went back down to the normal range. Right. So....as long as I am relaxing, my BP is totally normal.
The answer was to cut me to part time at work and to have me resting the rest of the time (the doc's exact words were "I want you to be a couch potato") and see how things look in a couple of days. I go back in on Wednesday for another check, so this part time plan will have all of tomorrow to see how it goes. I am really hoping that they let me do a few things because I have this wedding I REALLY want to go to on Saturday, then I have my other baby shower the next Saturday...what do you think the odds are of me being allowed to attend these two events?? I am thinking not good. They don't sound like "couch potato" activities, but I will ask about the wedding on Wednesday if things look good. On top of that, work is really not ready for me to be gone yet, so that is an entire other stress. I am trying to not worry about it, but it is a real mess. Still, the absolute most important thing is this sweet baby. I am not going to do anything that puts him/her in danger or rushes the birth when it is clearly to early for this little guy or girl to get here! So...I guess I am off to watch some TV and get some R&R!
