Well this Saturday I will be 40 weeks pregnant! I saw the OB this morning, I'm 1cm dilated and 60% effaced (last week I was not dilated at all and 30% effaced).
Unfortunately, my blood pressure was high, 142/84 (it's normally around 105/60-65 even when I'm pregnant). They had me lay on my side for a bit and then took it again and it was 113/71. My OB said since it went down with me resting, I could do bedrest at home. So, I'm on bedrest and I go back Monday. Dh is taking tonight off work so he can take care of the kids and the house. Prayers my bp stays down are appreciated, I don't want to have to make the choice to induce (or do a c/s, uggh!) I'm trying to be optimistic, but I've been laying down for an hour and still having splotchy vision and numbness in my arms and hands.
