good news

we went to the doctor this morning to have my blood pressure checked since it has been pretty high the last few days. it was looking much better today. yay!!! they want to continue to monitor it so that they can catch preeclampsia if that ends up becoming an issue.

i am feeling a little better today...not as sore as yesterday. we did go to the hospital last night because my pain had increased drastically between 4:00 and 9:00. they told us there was possibilities of side effects from the steroids, such as contractions. everything checked out okay, which is, again, great news. we got hooked up to the monitors since we weren't feeling him move and once on them, we were able to see that his heart rate and movement looked great. jeramy and i love being able to see that his heart rate is okay and that he is moving. it is just a lot of pressure, especially for me since i am supposed to go to the hospital if i notice a lack of movement or decrease in movement. it's such a difficult line. prior to last wednesday, when we found out what was going on, i didn't read into anything like that. now, it is so hard though because i don't want to "cry wolf", but i also don't want to be stubborn, assuming everything is okay, if it's not. wonder my blood pressure has been high!

i am really looking forward to today. my mom and sister are coming over in a bit to keep me company and to help clean. then later this evening, my dad and brother-in-law will also come over to join us all for dinner when jeramy gets home from work. company always makes the days go by quicker!

we love you all and thank you still for your support and prayers. God is good...all the time!
