Trip to L&D

Today we had a a typical appointment with my doctor to check up on Lily and to make sure that everything was going along as it should be. Well, Lily is fine, but I'm having some issues. The doctor did an ultrasound and my fluid was really low again and my blood pressure was rather high.
So, we got to spend 4 hours today over at labor and delivery being monitored and taking several tests. They even gave me a steroid shot just in case she needs to come early. While it wasn't how I wanted to spend my day, it turned out just fine. I was sent home after they pumped me full of fluid and my levels increased and my blood pressure went down.
Lily was doing great the entire time. Her heart beat was right on and she was very active. She is measuring just right and is already weighing in at over 5 1/2 pounds. Her lungs and heart are both very strong. I have to go back tomorrow for another shot, but other than that I was told to stay home (no shopping trips or anything like that) and rest. Tragic really since I broke our camera last week and I really need to go find a new one before Lily comes. Maybe I'll send my sister shopping for me.


  1. Oh man! I'm glad we have the technology for pregnancy we do. Thank heavens you and Lily are doing well. We'll keep praying for you and your little family!

  2. Let us know how we can help and just sit back and relax!
