I went to the doctor last week because my blood pressure was getting way too high. She wanted to put me in the hospital right then. 
No thanks!

I didn't test positive for eclampsia, so I got to go home, but  was put on "limited activity".

That's hard to do with a 3 year old and trying to get ready for a baby. I've got stuff to do people.

The saddest part of all, is that Marcus and I were planning on going to Canton (huge fun flea market in east tx) on Thursday and we had to miss out. 
I am sure he shed a tiny tear about that! 

I have been taking medicine since last Wednesday and it's starting to work. My BP has been good. It makes me feel tired, but I am 39, and 8 months pregnant, so tired is something I'm used to.I will get more test results this week. We are praying I can stay home until I deliver this baby boy and that it won't be TOO soon. The goal is 36 weeks. Well, the real goal is 39 weeks, but 36 would be fine. He's the size of a full grown man right now anyway...I'm pretty sure.

Marcus turned 38 1/2 on Saturday, so we had to celebrate. 
We started the day with cinnamon rolls and also had a cheeseburger at Kincaid's. 
It's all about the food!
 If you are new around here, we celebrate half birthdays in our little family. 
One birthday a year just isn't enough!

My family has helped me a lot with Katie and getting little projects done at the house this week. Nesting has kicked in, but I am not capable of doing everything. For some reason it feels like a top priority that my closet is cleaned before I have the baby? I doubt he will care, but in my  head, it HAS to get done. Oh and I should probably buy some diapers too!

Praying for you Dina. I was put to bed when I was 9 weeks pregnant, with a 4 year old by my side ;) It's the hardest thing I have had to do, but we did it. Delivered at 36 weeks..the first goal. Nothing was done in preparation but baby boy didn't know it. My biggest goal was to have a name (hubs and I disagreed) but I won on that one ;) The only thing that really to this day bugs me is I didn't get to do that nesting and I look at baby snapshots and see stacks of stuff all in those pictures because we just made it through each day of clean clothes, food and hubs getting to work. It will all be fine...healthy momma and baby is what matters. Praying for you, Marcus, Katie and little guy.

Prayers that your bp stays in the right range and little man stays put a bit longer!

You and your little man are in my prayers. Glad the medicine is helping. Closet cleaning can wait, missy!!

Happy half birthday to your better half! :)

Rest, rest, rest! I know. Easier said than done. But you lots of family and friends that pitch in. Enjoy some time being lazy and hanging out with Katie on the couch. That closet can wait. Did you get steroid shots?

Prayers for you and your little man! I'm glad the medicine is working. My 4 year old was 8 weeks early and my 8th month old was 6 weeks early so I never got to nest! Enjoy this time.

Dina, I just saw your post about eclampsia. I had it with Heloisa and I was in the hospital for 02 weeks before she was born.

I am glad all is well now.
Praying you have an easy end of pregnancy.
