and I am still pregnant. I went in on Monday for a standard NST. My blood pressure was 153/76. They sent me back to an ultrasound to check my placental fluid and it was down to 5.2 centimeters. They immediately checked me into Labor and delivery because my fluid was so low. I got poked prodded and the put me on an IV. I stayed in the L&D room overnight and they had Xander up to the NST moniters all night so I had to stay on my back and I didn't sleep at all. Then the next morning they checked my fluid and it was back up to 8.6 after 4 bags of saline solution into the IV. They sent me down to the neonatal ward for the next day and I had 2 NST's and my blood pressure was checked every hour. I spent the night down there and actually slept. I had one more NST this morning as well as a fluid check and I am up to 9.6. My BP was nice and normal the entire time I was in the hospital bed. I was discharged around noon. I have a NST to go to tomorrow and an appointment with my OB. I am just hoping my fluid stays up in the normal range. If not they may have to have me give birth early. I am 35 weeks today. I do have to say it was nice having everyone wait on my hand and foot.

So Brian and I decide to go to Chili's for dinner last night. I go in to get us a table while he goes to the auto store next door to pick up a part for his motorcycle. I go up to the hostess and tell her party of 2. She says if I want to we can sit at the bar and eat there no wait. I said that probably is not going to work seeing as how I am pregnant. She looks me up and down and says "Oh you are?" I'm sorry but I am just 9 months pregnant. I look 9 months pregnant, are you insane wanting to sit me at a bar with high stools. You must be on crack lady. So then I am told the wait is 20 minutes. I go sit in the waiting area and a woman with a 7yo sits down next to me. At this point Xander starts kicking me in the ribs. So, I start rubbing that area. The woman notices and asks me how far along. I say the beginning of my 9th month. Her jaw drops and she says "why are you out? You should be at home relaxing!". I told her politely that I need to eat too. Why the heck should I be at home? Am I incapable of going out to eat? I am not going to pop at this very second. In fact I am not due till next month. So seriously, mind your own business. Blah!
