Saturday News

Happy Saturday, everyone!

This is where I wish I was right now:

ISU is playing K-State today at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. It should be a great game, and I also think it is a heck of a lot nicer weather in KC than it is in Iowa right now!

We had known this game was on the schedule for a while and we were pretty jazzed up about going until that fateful day when we found out we were pregnant! I swear that is the first thing Scott said- oh man, we are going to miss the K-State game! At the time, it seemed eons away...but here it is! Hopefully we can catch it on TV or at a restaurant this afternoon.

Well, it is probably a good thing we are not headed there today because we had quite the exciting day yesterday. I went in for my weekly OB appointment and my blood pressure was a little high again and I also told the doctor I hadn't been feeling very well. I've been having some slight headaches in the morning (but went away with Tylenol and a Coke) and I've just been feeling worn down. Well...she got pretty excited and told us to go straight to the hospital to be monitored at Maternity Triage. What??!!!

So then I was having a full blown anxiety attack and that is when they decided to take my blood pressure AGAIN and of course it was like the highest it had ever been! I was very nervous and scared so Scott and I headed downtown to the hospital. When we got there we headed up to the Triage unit (thankfully, we had just been there on our tour one week before!) and they got me hooked up to a monitor to watch baby and a cuff to take my blood pressure every 10 minutes and also drew some blood.

The hardest part was having to lay in that darn bed for 2 hours while we waited for the blood work tests to get back! Thankfully, the blood tests were fine and baby was doing great and my blood pressure went down to a more normal range almost as soon as we got there. So basically...everything is fine for now.

So now I'm at home trying to take it easy until Monday when I'll go back to the doctor. I think if the baby doesn't come either today or tomorrow (which I am not guessing it will) the doctor will want me to be induced. Which stinks because it will probably be a long induction since I haven't progressed at all which means lots of time at the hospital which is not exactly the most zen like atmosphere! So I am praying for a baby or more progress by Monday! At any rate, the most important goal is to have a healthy baby and a healthy mom, no matter how we get there. I was freaking out the whole way to the hospital yesterday just thinking this is not how I wanted it to be and not how I planned it. But then many things are really in our control?
