Doing okay. Spending time lesson planning just in case I don't get to go back next week. Plus it helps to have the plans ready for maternity leave. Eating a lot! Watching too much tv. I wanted to read, but tv is too enticing.

Great news! We are in a similar situation, I haven't heard back from my 24hr urine and bloodwork yet, so I am assuming no news is good news. She still wants me to take it easy. I have really cut back and am resting a lot, hubby enforces this Lastnight my brother checked my bp and it was 126/76 which is almost where my pressures are normally! I did swing by and check it at Kroger today and it was 108/84, we are just watching that bottom number that has finally lowered from the 90's.

I'm supposed to be watching for any other symptoms, especially headaches. The problem with this is that my allergies are out of whack with everything blooming and therefore I've had a headache for about 4 days straight. It's hard to decifer if it's allergy related or Pre-E related...I'm sticking with allergies!

I am thankful for everyday that I'm able to keep this sweet boy in his comfy womb and I'm praying that my BP issues don't turn into Pre-E. I really dislike the idea of possibly needing to be induced if things change rapidly, my induction with my son was the HARDEST labor!

I'm almost off bed rest and pelvic rest! 10 days left, woot!! I'm doing okay. Contractions have picked back up again and baby has definitely dropped really low but I haven't dilated anymore in the last 2 weeks. I'm itching to finish the nursery and get outside, go walking, and get back to exercising!
DH has been amazing with housework, and getting things ready for baby while I pretty much supervise.

Wow your pressure sounds fantastic! Nice job! I'm so pleased that you are doing so much better. I was warned to watch out for a bunch of symptoms as well but I never had any symptoms to begin with, thats why it was such a shock. I'm definitely going to lay low though. I'm also sure that they would have contacted you by now if you had problems with your labs so I'm going for a YAY for you there too!!

I'm glad that you don't seem to be progressing as far as dilation is concerned. I would be left eye ticking to get back to it too so I hope that you can get back to your projects and such soon. And hooray for DH stepping up. You have to love that.

Aww I missed your post.. *leaves you a hug* I'm glad that you are keeping busy and doing better! And no shame in the TV watching. Might as well go for it while you have uninterupted time.

Modified bed rest over here... my doctor is so positive and awesome, she totally thinks we can keep baby cooking until 39 weeks. I'm really positive we can!! Just trying to keep a happy attitude, ya know?

Im really bad at this rest thing... I am on "suggested" bed rest, so Ive been really loose with it, but have had a few days where I thought she could drop at any minute and it is a little scary. Im just so bored resting all the time!!!!
