Today is a day of rest after the day we had yesterday!! I went to my doctors appointment in the morning and I thought that everything would be okay. First I noticed that she put 12# weight gain on my chart!! 12 POUNDS in 3 weeks! Then my blood pressure was up once again. Then to top things off she didn't like the amount of swelling that she saw in my feet and face. So, she proceded to ask me if I had any plans for the rest of the day and I of course said nothing major. She then asked me to go to the hospital for observation! I was shocked to say the least since I have been feeling fine other than the swelling. She said that the weight gain is because of the swelling and since I was on my feet everyday last week to help Betsy out, I never had a chance to rest. So, I called Dan and let him know (crying the whole time!) and asked him to stay at work unless I called and told him otherwise. So, I was in the hospital for around 4-5 hours while they monitored my blood pressure (which was normal the whole time) and ran some labs. I'm on moderate bed rest which is basically what I was doing before. I'm still able to do things but I just have to make sure that I rest. The doctor that saw me was confindent that everything will be okay but that I just need to take it easy which I plan on doing anyways. I was confident the whole time that everything would be okay......except while I was on the phone with Dan.....that's when I became scared! Luckily we're both doing okay and Lillian even had the hiccups while she was being monitored! Now if I could only stop snoring......poor Dan!
