Another good day at the Dr.! Don't jump to conclusions though, I'm still on bed rest! :) However, the Dr. was very pleased with all of the tests yesterday, so we need to continue what we're doing for 2 more weeks and then we'll induce. The only way to get rid of this preeclampsia stuff is to deliver, so regardless of how well I'm doing at 36 weeks, she wants to nip it in the bud. We had another ultrasound yesterday, and Emery was sticking her tongue out at us, it was way cute. Probably a sign of what's to come with her attitude. ha. I also had to do a NST (Non-stress test). They just hook up the 'belly bands' that take the babies heart rate, and I had to click a button everytime she moved, and the test measures her heart rate when she moves...and it should go up. She passed that test with flying colors. As far as the rest is concerned, I had no protein yesterday (woo hoo!) and my blood pressure was in the 130's/80's range....much better! I felt like I had aced my final exam!!! I go back in another week, for the same tests, so say a little prayer! :)

This bed rest stuff is hard to get used to, especially when you feel okay. I really wanted to get some more shopping done before Emery comes! grrr. I hear Hobby Lobby calling my name, am craving one heck of a Chinese buffet, and would love to do a lap at the this point i would take the "hall" in Nacogdoches. For all of you non-SFA'ers...the "hall" is Nacogdoches sad excuse for a mall that is outfitted with a Belk, Beall's, JcPenney, Radio Shack, and Bath & Body Works. Okay, you can stop laughing now.

I'm writing this at 7:15 a.m. and Trey is settling in to his new routine. Daddy has left for morning workouts at school, and Trey knows to come find me in bed and we watch Disney until Mimi comes over. Can we just say about 10 Thank-You's to my mom right now. First off, let me say this...I'm not the neatest. I'm not an absolute slob, but when I have a choice between playing with Trey and doing a load of laundry, you can guess who wins. So, for the first time in who knows how long, my laundry is caught up! My house is dusted. The dishes are clean. Pantry is organized. Some people may not recognize my house! :) Trey is also very excited because Grandma and Papa are coming Thursday night. Hopefully we will have Emery's room all done by the time they leave. We just have to paint under the chair rail and get some stuff on the walls (hence the reason Hobby Lobby is calling my name!)

I'll post pictures of her room, and some of Trey as soon as I get my camera out of Joe's truck. It's in my hospital bag, and we are to the point where that goes with us to the Dr., just in case! Well, stay tuned...hopefully I'll get some pictures in the next couple of days! :)

Hey bedrest friend! I can only imagine how crazy you must be going, but it's all worth it in the end! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you!
