WOW that was a close call

SO today has been QUITE the interesting day.

First official Maternity leave day. YIPPIE.

Didn't start off to great. Last night was feeling quite hungry yet my tummy felt icky from carbs overload.
So slept that off.

Woke this morning at 8am. THANK YOU MEAGAN for falling asleep at 9pm.

Still not feeling Quite right. Had some strawberries with Meagan for breakfast. ADN still not feeling better.

Around 10:10 Meagan chose to leave Barney (shocked the HELL OUT OF ME) to go upstairs. THinking little girl was still tired. SO off for a nap. SHe just hung out in her room. Made a mess of it. BUT its ok she just wanted time to herself.

During that hour I still was not getting any better. Fighting a feeling of Hunger yet Repulsed by the sheer thought of it.

THEN I got sick. All the strawberries came up and kinda felt a little better after that.

Was just about ready to take a bath to relax a little more. BUT meagan wanted out of her room. So we took a warm bath together. Was nice. Started feeling a bit better but not 100%.

Got meagan her lunch and at 1 she was ready for her nap.
I followed with a nap but still not feeling up to eating. NOW I started to think MAYBE this wee one is on his or her way.

Woke up and got ready to go to midwifes. FEELING much better.

All going well until she takes my blood presure at end. and with a big Uh Oh. She mentions now need to go to hospital. My blood pressure was too high for her liking 135/100. Its always beena round 110/80 or so.

THEN she tells me what to expect. Fetal NST, another test of blood pressure. IF thers a concern they will induce me.
Basically the blood pressure coiuld go up if I'm getting ready to deliver baby anyways. SO the plans of getting meagan's blinds and having dinner with my girlfriend is well in limbo.

SO off we go. Finally get there. GET strapped in and sit and wait. Things look ok. WAIT around for the OBGYN to come and give us the go ahead. BUT Surprisingly It came down. THey had me at 110/82.

even the nurse was like "well see just sopme relaxing will get it down."

HEll all the thinking since leaving the midwifes at 4:10 drive to chirs's work to pick him up. Figure out if my mom is working at her second job tonight or not. CRAP theres very little ready in place for this baby. AT LEAST my bag was packed. WHO is chris going to get back home after IF we are induced. HELL with meagan I laboured for 5 hours after being induced. Technically depending when I get induced this baby could possibly arrive by 9pm. THIS AND THAT. I spent a good 20 minutes while driving there planning and stressing all about that.

SO all was well. WEnt for some good pho's for dinner. AND just finished doing my EI claim and filing our TAXES.

Which I can say there must be a billion people filing via UFILE as its super slow.

BUT its done and expect to see my return in what the next 6-8 weeks. AND figure out a payment plan we cal live with for Chris repayment.
THink gonna have him set up either RRSP's or ask for an extra $20 taken off in taxes so its not such a hit to his/our wallet every year.

GOod lord 3 more weeks.

I cant wait. Im tired of being tired. STILL not getting to sleep at decent times. BUT at least I have the opportunity to nap when meagan takes her nap. THOUGH this week has been quite busy that only thursday was the first day this week I could join her in her naps.

Still not getting much done. GOT all my suplies ready for my hospital bag. I think. HAve to go over the list again. BUT NOWHERE near ready with theis computer room getting cleaned out to turn into a baby room.

I think I'm going to have my sister come over on Thursday so I can tackle it.

I'm hoping Baby will stay a little longer in me and not come early.

So far baby hasn't dropped. THANK GOD. I'll get worried when it does. BUT I'm getting MAD BH contractions.

WE went for a walk along the lakefront yesterday. NOTHING MUCH, had meagan in the stroller as I was not planning on chasing her. AND the slow pace I was going was bringing on contractions. GOD that was hell. Especially since I left my cellphone at home.

we did have an interesting weekend last weekend. WEll Friday at least. My last day of work I spent 3 hours in the ER. the day before a client of mine came to centre AFTER having Diarhea all night and morning.

WHY they parents sent him to school and then to us we are still unsure. So 3:20 am I get the sudden urge to vomit. Run to the bathroom. Urge goes away but I now need to pee. So here I am on the toilet and then vomitting into the tub. Thinking ok MAYBE this is my lovely morning sickness and I'll feel better not that its done.

NOPE not feeling better. SO I call my program director to call in sick. VOMIT AGAIN. call my supervisor to let her know she needs to change the schedule. VOMIT AGAIN.
I vomitted ever 10 mintes until 5am.
Chris woke at 4am as usual. HAD him call my mom so that someone can be at the house for Meagan when she wakes. SO did not want to bring her along with us.
So it took some time for my mom to get here. BUT thats ok.

GET to ER at 5am. go for the NST in maternity ward. THEY put us in a room thats like 8x11. SOOOOOOO SMALL. All is fine with baby. BACK to ER we go. GET IV and GRAVOL. we were amazed with the nurse. I have really deep veins and most of the time they colapse when trying to withdraw blood. WELL she got it fist try. WITHOUT hurting me.

SO all was well but find out I have an kidney infections. CRAP I have been forgetting all week to take the dang pills. I remember once or twice a day. I'm horrible.

So we see the midwives on monday and I was asking her IF we can request the room we had last time. IT was HUGE had a shower in the bathroom and the room was at least 16x16. SO hopefully baby will not arrive during the full moon when MORE WOMEN seem to go into labour. BUT other than that I hope we can get a large room.

BUT i technically I only laboured for 5 hours with meagan. Does it really matter the size of the room.
