Catch Up

I have found some unexpected time on my hands now so figured a few blog posts should be put up.  A lot has happened since our trip to Texas in March - just wait and see!

Here are a few of the topics we'll be addressing in the next few posts:
1. Pregnancy
2. Baby Shower (MN)
3. Baby Shower (WI)
4. The Nursery

Ok - so there's a definite baby theme going on here.  Sorry about that.  We haven't been up to too much else besides the baby though - and I wouldn't expect that to change anytime soon!  Bry has been really enjoying his work lately - he's co-leading a project and has enjoyed the challenge of being in charge - although this also comes with frustrations and stress.  Luckily this job is very close to home (10 minutes) so he has been able to have a flexible schedule and this should continue to be the case.

Abi has been having a lot of good cases at work lately.  Up until 2 days ago work was going very well - with few complaints.  It's not exactly easy to work an 8-9 hour shift with an extra 20 pounds and being tired all the time, but it hadn't been too bad.  Patients had started to notice too - which was fun, although a little strange to have to redirect them.  "We can talk about the baby later - tell me more about your chest pain" !

That brings us to the pregnancy update.  2 days ago Abi had a doctor's appointment after she had worked all night.  (This seemed like a good idea 3 months ago when the appointment was scheduled.)  Well her blood pressure was very high and they were also worried about the swelling in her legs.  The main concern was for pre-eclampsia.  So she was admitted to labor and delivery for 8 hours of monitoring.  Her blood pressure came down some, but not enough to be cleared for good.  So she was sentenced started on bed rest until Friday when a repeat appointment and evaluation of lab work will determine where to go from there.

We are currently at 34 weeks 1 day.  Baby is doing very well so far.  Our past ultrasounds have been all good news - she's growing right on track, we even saw her "practice breathing" at the last one.  We also got a 4D sneak peak of the little nugget too!  I will try to post some more details about the pregnancy - including (gasp) belly photos.
