It doesn't always go as planned

So, I just got back from the doc. I had gone Tuesday and they were concerned about my blood pressure so they needed me to come back in today. After unsuccessfully lowering my blood pressure, they let me know that I am pre-eclamptic and I need to take it easy until I have the baby.

I was planning on working until the 18th. I WANTED to work until my due date, but I've been so exhausted I figured the 18th was good. Now, this is my last day. Kind of trippy, I know. Luckily, I have been pre-planning things, so I kind of have things together, but I need to spend today getting all of my ducks in a row. Because I won't be back until June 30th!

It sounds though like they may induce early if needed. My doc actually doesn't think I'll make it to my shower (on the 12th). Which is kind of crazy. Right now I'm close to 36 weeks, so I'm ALMOST full term. Man, next week I could be a mommy! Crazy, huh?

Well, I am planning on taking it easy and staying off my feet and just hoping that I can make it to my shower. Actually, our schedule would work out fine if Brett comes on the 18th or later, because my shower's the 12th and then we meet the pediatrican on the 17th. But, as I learned today, it's not on my schedule.

So, I guess we just wait and see....
