I have superficial blood clots in my vericlose veins. They can not do much about them. My BP has been really great this week. I will be 36 weeks on Satuday and no dialation- no nothing. This is so frustrating.

I feel just bad tonight and want to crawl in bed and god to sleep but need to spend some time with my sweet husband. Any one else feeling this way? This bed rest is depressing.

Drs appointment went well today. I do have to go tomorow because he thinks I have bllod clots in my legs. This will be the second time.

I will be 35 weeks saturday.... 5 weeks left. I can do this.....RIGHT?

Went to Dr today to figure out this burning sensations I have been having. He did not say much about it. I almost passed out in the lab so h was more concerned about that. My bp was down but still high. 150/90. Still had protein too. He told me to cut the meds in half.

He also told me I was dehydrated. UGH!

I go get monitored in the morning and back to the dr right after. Apprently I will be going 3 times a week now. They already have all 3 appointments set up for next week.

Very frustrated!


They are not syaing I have pre-e just yet either. My bp is 153/106 and that is on bedrest. Some protien in my urine but not enough for them to worry yet.

They gave me my second bp med today. Got home and settled before i took it. It was not long before i was ripping my clothes off. My nipples were on fire!!! :o One of the side effects were tingling sensations but this goes far beyond tingle. DH gave me one tylenol and it seems to have helped - some. When I got monitored today they almost did not let me leave. I am sure I will hear it on Thursday when I do see the dr.

No talk of delivery yet from my drs but I will bring it up on Thursday.

I am 34 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby..finally getting my boy.

 I have had so many complications. I have broken blood vessels around my cervix that i have to deal with the entire time, cluster migraines that would keep me in bed for days at a time. I got the flu, i had an emergency appendectomy at 20 weeks-which thankfully stopped my all day sickness. I have been having contractions since 29 weeks. Some of them have had me on the floor crying while others were mild. They have picked up in the last few days but nothing that i can time. The drs are not concerned about that because there is no dialation or thinning-so far. About 3 weeks ago they found protein in my urine and my bp shot up. I was put in bed rest last week because I had a bad reaction to the bp medicine they placed me on.

After everything that I have dealt with I was ready for rest, but 4 days in and I am going insane. I have to be monitored two times a week out side of the normal drs visit. I am pretty sure that I will not make my July 25 due date as I have lost my plug and have completely dropped. Not to mention the BP does not stay down while I am laying down. We are hoping that I do not develop preeclampsia. I had my second child all natural and I want to be able to do the same with this one.

If anyone has any ideas on how to pass the time while on bed rest please let me know! I have 5 weeks and 6 days to go.
