Is it time yet?

Our bags are packed, our freezer is stocked, and there are some very antsy people in this house...

So my 24 hour pee came back normal, and at Friday's appointment I was told I was "still closed, but mushy". But my blood pressure was borderline high (130/90), even after she took it a few times, so I'm going in for a non-stress test tomorrow morning at 9:30am.

Baby, don't you want to come out and play???????

I know I still have 12 days until my due date (actually, tomorrow is my original due, based on my LMP - they pushed it to November based on the ultasounds), and I wouldn't even be thinking about delivering early if all of my appointments were the usual "get in, pee, get measured, see you next week" type... but all of the modified bedrest and extra appointments have me hoping she comes a bit early.

I mean, yes, I can do some work from home and luckily I was able to do that last week for the two days I spent on modified bedrest... but I'd much rather be at work waiting for this little girl than wait at home by myself and burn my maternity leave (which is actually just all of the sick and annual leave I've saved up over the past 4 years at work for this specific purpose)!

I am sooooo looking forward to 14 weeks at home with this munchkin. Maybe the 14 weeks will start this week?

Glad your pee came back normal! Hope the stress test goes well, and hopefully the baybeh wants to become soon! Fingers crossed for you :)
