I have lots to post about and a hundred pictures, but for now, I want to just give a quick update and ask for your prayers. Wednesday was my 35 week appointment. I was diagnosed with mild preeclampsia- high blood pressure, some swelling in my feet, and an elevated level of protein in my urine. It hit within a day or two, with no warning signs. I actually feel great! I still have lots of energy and my sense of humor.
My doctor was quite concerned and wanted me to stop working, but I begged for another week, just to see how it goes. I am on bedrest/light duty until I go back to work on Monday. My doctor is going to let me work Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and then go back for my next appointment on Wednesday. We are both praying that I have either eliminated a symptom of the preeclampsia, or that it has at least not gotten worse.
Yesterday, I was 35 weeks, but measuring four weeks ahead!! Yikes! My Dr. said I am as big as a woman in her 39th week. He keeps saying that this baby will be a big boy if I can make it full term. But, right now that little Harbor still needs his lungs to develop. I am praying God will let him bake at least two to three more weeks.
In the next few days, I hope to post the pictures from my work shower earlier in the week and the next baby shower that is coming up this weekend.
Until then, I plan on just keeping my feet up and relaxing! : )
