Well, this morning was awesome. I woke up at 5:30, and couldn't get back to sleep. I was both hungry, and had a bunch of stuff running through my head that I wanted to get done today. I had some boxes I wanted to bring to the garage, a slow cooker meal to get started, laundry to start, sewing gear out of the dining room (we may need that for dinner tomorrow, lol) and general clean up. I also wanted to get gas and hit the grocery store. I pretty much got that underway, and left at 7 for the doctors (and get gas and the grocery store).
At the gas station, I managed to back up into a van (yep - I didn't even look back OR use my back up camera! WTF! I'm a better driver than that!). No damage to the van, but I dented my bumper. I was pretty upset, but not hurt or anything. When they took my blood pressure at the doc's office, I was at 160/100. Whoops! Which apparently gets you a trip to L&D to be monitored. By the time I left, my BP was down to 111/55 - but they want me to stay on 'modified bed rest' until I go back for a recheck on Saturday. Which kind of works out nicely - no cooking or cleaning allowed! Of course - that is what I did with my morning... but I called my Mom (who is arriving tonight), and she is all upset too. I feel like I'm going to be treated like a princess for the next 48 hours.
I may or may not take advantage.
In exciting baby news, my neighborhood pregnant buddy had her baby last night - a little girl - 6 lbs, 12oz. Her due date was this upcoming Friday - so I know she is happy to have her here! Hurrah for new babies.
