Happy Thanksgiving....or not....

Today we celebrated Thanksgiving at our house. Since we moved in, Craig and I have hosted this holiday. I really wasn't in the mood to do it but I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere either. I'm retaining so much water that I can not wear my engagement ring and I can't even zip up my coat! Not feeling so fabulous for 2 months pregnant.

Prior to everyone getting here except my parents I had my first meltdown in front of my Mom. I'm so angry these days. Why am I having so many problems? I guess it isn't so many as one huge one. I just feel it is so unfair:(

Bed rest

I had my follow up with the the doctor today to check my blood pressure and make sure there was a heart beat.

There was a heart beat, it was 160 (by the books this means it is a girl but the ultra sound person says not to rely on that). This was positive news.

Now the not so positive news. My doctor has taken me out of work and told me to relax. My bp is running 160/110 and they have put me on medication to try to lower it. I would cross my fingers that this works however they are so swollen from water retention that I can't cross my fingers.

Interested to see how this relaxing thing works out....
