Baby update...

I wanted to let everyone know how my last couple of appointments have gone and what is new in the life of Cali and Mac this week...My Dr. is out of town this week so I've been going to someone else in his office- Jo Cluney. On Monday I met with her and had really bad swelling (not more then usual) and high blood pressure, when she checked the baby he hadn't seemed to have grown over the last week so she scheduled a stress test. I went in for that on Thursday and they think I may be leaking amniotic fluid but Mac's heart rate seemed really good and responsive.

I then went back to my Dr. on Friday to evaluate my test and learned that I have developed preeclampsia, which means my blood flow to the placenta has decreased. This can be a huge concern so she put me on bed rest... I go back in on Monday (tomorrow) to make sure I haven't leeked more amniotic fluid and then go again on Tuesday to meet with my Dr. (he'll be back in town by then) so for now it's just a waiting game to see if any of the conditions have become worse and see what needs to be done from there! I'll try to keep everyone updated, but thanks to everyone for your love and concern!!!
