I've not felt up to posting anything new this past week...it's been a hard week. My blood pressure is going up and down, my husband is reaching panic mode (which usually happens towards the end of my pregnancies as he hates not being able to control or help the situation) and we were preparing for family to come in for Thanksgiving.
So I felt it was time for an update. We're still hanging in there! Baby Chase is staying healthy and happy in the womb and my body is slower to evict him than my other pregnancies. So no complaints there...except, I think my mother-in-law, Jane, is tiring of caring for 3 young and very active kids; she's been helping so much for the past 5 weeks that I've been on bed rest.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and visit with family. We had our first pie night (only pies for dinner the night before Thanksgiving) and it was a huge success. However, what a lot of work...after everyone left and clean-up began, it sort of felt like Thanksgiving drug out for 2 days instead of one.
I had to go in for some blood work on Wednesday afternoon and my blood pressure was really high so I ended up being sent to the hospital for evaluation....I was NOT happy about missing pie night. Once I was at the hospital, my blood pressure dropped, my blood work came back fine so I was sent home just in time to have some pie and visit with everyone :)
While at the hospital, I discovered that I'm scheduled for induction on December 3rd so as long as I can keep my blood pressure in check for 5 more days then we'll have a baby on December 3rd! Baby Chase will be 36 weeks 1 day, which will be my longest pregnancy!
My parents are in town for the weekend, but have to leave on Monday so they'll unfortunately miss the birth by 2 days and won't be able to see the baby until Christmas.
We're going to have a birthday 3 weeks before Christmas, Lillee's birthday is 2 weeks before Christmas, we'll celebrate Christmas, Connor's birthday is 2 weeks after Christmas and then Isabel's birthday is one month later. We're going to be officially broke from Thanksgiving until February, every year!
Well, that should be enough rambling for now. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hopefully we'll have some happy baby news to share, soon!
