Appointments and more

So..... we went in for the appointment. All started out fairly normal. The nurse took my blood pressure which showed up a little high. Pretty abnormal for me. She decided she would check it again after I was done with my OB. My OB came in and was introduced to the guys. We went over the normal things. I asked if there was any chance of an earlier induction. She thought no but spoke to her colleagues about it. My main argument was because of my speed in labor and needing the epidural. I didn't want to go into labor on my own. Her colleagues were not on board with my thoughts. I get it, they have rules and regulations they need to follow.

My blood pressure was taken again and again it was high. I provided a urine sample that came back with protein traces. Not really the results they want to see. The traces were low but my OB ordered a few labs and she would call later with results.

After the labs, the guys and I spent a little more time together talking over coffee. It was nice to sit back, chat and relax with them. Later they dropped me off at home and we went about our evening.

The following morning went a bit different then I had planned it to go. That is very common in my house due to having 4 kids but this wasn't because of my kids. At 8:00 am I received a message saying I need to call my OB because they were ready to induce............ THAT DAY! My labs showed results that weren't ideal making my new plans for the day an induction. So I had less than 2 hours to get things in order. I called the guys and asked if they were ready to have babies. Of course they were! I imagine their heads went a little crazy as none of us were expecting our day to include an induction. Next, I called my mother-in-law with the induction news. She made arrangements to watch my boys along with my father-in-law. Bless their giving hearts. They are such wonderful, helpful people.

After my kids were packed and ready to go with grandma and grandpa, my husband and I hopped in the car. We were about to make dreams come true for two very special people.

This is all I will post for today. I need some rest and I know you all love a good suspense story.

I'll post again soon... promise.
