My blood pressure has been higher than it should be, so I've been told to rest a lot over the weekend and avoid salt and caffeine until my blood pressure can be rechecked on Monday. If it doesn't come down, I will have to deliver early. I am at 36 weeks now, and I REALLY want to make it to 37 so this baby will be considered full term. I am kind of anxious about everything -- I still don't feel mentally ready for labor and I cannot imagine what it will be like to get to hold my baby for the first time. I hope everything goes well.
Today I packed my hospital bag and have been watching my husband clean and cook...which has been very nice. He has been very good about taking care of me this weekend. I just hope this baby gets to stay in a little longer!
