The three B's

Blood pressure, bedrest and breech.

On my way to Denver on wed to stay the night end see flogging molly, NP called and told me my bp was way too high and I needed to go on bedrest and come back in Friday morning. Today it was better, but still high, but my blood work did come back looking okay. I had to change my OB appt from Wed to Monday and up my NST/BPPs to Mondays/Thursdays.

She added on a BPP/NST today and low and behold, Karl is no longer headdown. Is it possible to be pissed at an unborn baby? Because I'm quite irritated right now.

More later. Just a quick update to let you know I'm alive.

Karl is a man - mini man right now but they always push our buttons :)

I hope all works out and you are ok :)

alison said...

Gah, I stopped those "turn, baby turn" vibes. That must have caused it. Come on, sweetpea, turn yourself around again!

Karyn with a Y said...

Awe man! It's just an indication of his personality before he arrive. I hope things get better soon.

I was getting a little nervous, starting searching all the Denver papers online for headlines "Crazy Punk Rock Pregnant woman jailed for...."....and yes, you can be upset with an unborn child...I've been a bit p'oed at this one several times..

Will you be able to work from home while on Bedrest?

Tricia said...

Yikes. Feel better and rest up. There is still time for him to turn right?

Krista said...

Take care of yourself! I'll be thinking of you and Karl and hoping for an uncomplicated, vaginal delivery!

Jenera said...

I was wondering if things were ok since you hadn't posted anything.

Well, though it all sucks, you've made it pretty far to the end. Maybe your little guy is just trying to keep things interesting.

::Hugs::

Cara said...

I was getting worried about you...and rightfully so! Now Karl - seriouly, give your mama a break - TURN, and quick.

Try to follow doctors orders, allright?

Elana Kahn said...

That's no fun at all. At least you hopefully won't be on bed rest for too long. But I do hope he turns back!!! Come on Karl, your head is supposed to be first out!

Hollie said...

This kid is letting you know who is in control... not you... Sorry about the high bp, bedrest, and breech. I didn't think he would turn again. Sorry you had to miss the concert. Glad you are ok.

Sarah R said...

Oh no! DAMNIT. I'm sorry. :(

calliope said...

oof! I'm getting back in line with Alison and chanting, "turn, baby, turn" (& maybe adding a "right 'round baby, right 'round" for good measure.)

Thinking of you.

Just no luck this week huh. I hope Karl rights himself pretty quickly, lil stinker.

margelina said...

Aw, crap. (((hugs)) Nancy. I hope you still got to see your concert. I know it's frustrating, just try and hang in there.

~Chel~ said...

Jeez Nancy! That's a man for ya! LOL! I'm sorry that your having crappy luck this week girl! I'm in line w/ chanting Turn Karl Turn!!!

Denise said...

Oh, Karl, what are you doing to your momma?

KatieM said...

Oh jeez hun.......I hope the remainder of Karl's uterine stay (however long that may be) is uneventful,and I'm really sorry he flipped again. =/

Emily said...

What a disappointment! :( Get some rest!

~*JaYmE*~ said...

UGh not fun. I hope the weeks go by fast for you & Karl doesnt give you too much trouble.

jenn said...

damn Nancy- damn! I hope he flips just one more time- he really needs to stop this!

Have fun, be careful. I will continue my cross country mantras of pleading with Karl to just be nice to momms & stop flipping on her!

Nikki said...

Good luck with your bp and bedrest! I hope Karl moves to how he's supposed to be before 1/23!! :-)

ak said...

Ah that little booger! Hope he turns and stays the way he is supposed to and that you get to have the vaginal delivery you're hoping for. Hope the BP keeps coming down too, and you can get off bedrest.

Anonymous said...

oh and ps someone was lurking for you on the 3rd tri board the other day, I think it was a question about beta #s. I remember that the post said something about "n-leisure", so you can search for it that way. :) Obviously not a response to your post, but i thought i'd let ya know.

MrsSpock said...

Now Karl, time to flip again....

Motel Manager said...

What a bummer about his position -- he likes to keep you guessing. While I had a good experience with a c/s, it would be a bummer to have had two successful V births and then end up with the c/s on the third, when things should usually be easy.

I hope your BP stays low and that bedrest isn't too tedious.....

Amanda said...

I'd say it's possible to be pissed at the kid. But if he's flipped this late in the game, he can do it again. Come on Karl, flip!

I hope your BP stays down and the bedrest doesn't become a permanent thing!!!!

Monica Fayth said...

Man, that sucks! I hope things turn for the better soon

Geohde said...

Breech again? What a clever one you have :)

Jess said...

Hang in there, Nancy. I'm really hoping everything "turns" out fine.

JamieD said...

Argh! I hope things start looking up . . . or down as the case may be

Anonymous said...

Oh NO!!! I know how much you want to go to that concert too. Bummer on the bp, bedrest and breech. Turn Karl, turn!!
