Since going to the Dr the other day my blood pressure stayed elevated most of the day. Not sure if it was because I was worried or just the fact that I have been wearing myself out lately. I took off work this weekend and rested. I felt so much better about it but around 10 last night I was feeling pretty yucky so Mike took my BP. 160/96. My instructions were to go to the hospital if BP went above 160/110. As ER nurses Mike and I see these numbers alot in patients and most of the time we shrug them off. But when I hadn't felt Cadence move much I was getting worried. So instead of waiting till we got to that high number we went to the hospital. I cried and shook the whole way there. Mike was so good and comforting, I know he will be awesome when I actually go in labor. We got there and I had the most awesome nurse ever!! She hooked me up and right away tried to comfort me saying Cadence was doing just fine, just running out of room and her movements are different now. I was getting so used the her kicks. After talking to Mike and I and reassuring me, she finally took my BP. 130's/70's the entire visit!! PTL!! But I felt like such a loser. I was like I am wasting everyone's time but she reassured me better safe than sorry. We were joking that we have to have Cadence on a weekend night now so she can be our nurse :) So it is taking it easy for me this week and we go back for a non-stress test and Growth US Wednesday to see where we are with everything and to see if I need to start going every week for visits. I know eventually I will probably have to take off work but I don't want to spend all my leave before she even gets here. But I want her healthy so I will do what I need to. I am already starting to pack Mike and I's bag for the hospital because you never know what is going to happen! What are some of the essentials that I should make sure I take for when I go into Labor???? I looked up different things online but I would love to hear what I DEFINATELY need.
