Home Sweet Home

I'm going home! ALL my labs look great and my 24 hour is pending and I am safe to go home. SAFE?! I am walking out the doors today still pregnant! That is an achievement for me!! Can you tell I am a little over excited?

I have nothing but good things to say about this visit, even given all the emotions that came with it. My nurses were above amazing and really made me feel like I was normal for my feelings. Maybe that's because they are the same nurses that had me with Nolan and they remember too. But that means so much to me that they even remember our Nolan. I told them I am sure they will see me in and out of here but I refuse to deliver until December, a girl can wish, right?

So I am to rest this weekend, watch my BP's and I have new headache medicine that I can take if my BP's are normal. I plan on doing NOTHING, I'm actually pretty good at that, ask my husband, he'll vouch for that. HA! We're not really too sure what the high BP's were all about, but since everything looks so good, we'll say a little bit of underlying anxiety can't help the situation. And that's okay and perfectly normal considering what we faced last time at this part of the pregnancy. If anything, this admission eased A LOT of fear I had.

I am just so excited I am 8 days away from my next goal. 26 weeks and 1 day, when I got sick with HELLP syndrome. I can do this!!!

I'll leave with with the all mighty sexy mirror picture taken this week. I'm looking big and I love it!24 weeks and 4 days
