So after last Friday having 3 hours of very intense contractions, I spent the last 3 days Christmas shopping and mall walking hoping to bring on labor. I went in this a.m. for my check up and my BP was up, not crazy but high for me 122/82. I'm normally about 100/60 . They checked my urine and it had protein in it. So now, I'm supposed to rest as much as possible. If this turns into anything like PE, I can't deliver at the birth center. I'm not too worried because I've never had pe before or problems with my BP but, I don't know how I'm going to get some rest considering it's 2 days before Christmas!

Anyway, other than that, baby is doing great and I'm progressing nicely. At this point, when I do go into labor, it will probably be active labor since I'm about 3.5 cm now. The only concern for me with that is that I might not make it to the birth center!!

I had tons and tons of protein in my urine for the last few months of my pregnancy- the midwives never told me what to do except to call if I saw spots. Luckily my Doula told me to really up my protein. I ate it for every meal as well as drank whey shakes. Another thing you can do is boil eggs and snack on them throughout the day. Lay off the salt and drink lots and lots of water.
