My baby has been extremely active these past several weeks.  I usually feel her move at least once every 1-2 hours.  But that hasn’t been the case lately.  I probably felt her move only 1-2 times since Monday.  I went to the hospital for a check-up yesterday to make sure she’s doing okay.  Fortunately, she is doing just fine.  I got to hear her beautiful heartbeat for a good 10 minutes.  I also got to see her during an ultrasound.  She was crossing her legs! She’s already such a lady.

My health on the other hand is in question.  Protein was found in my urine.  The nurse told me this could indicate I have preeclampsia.  Fortunately, my blood pressure isn’t high, so they’re just going to monitor my condition for now.  Women with preeclampsia sometimes have to deliver their babies sooner than planned.  Unfortunately, there’s not much I can do besides rest, drink more water and take in less salt.  Many women who have preeclampsia still have healthy deliveries, so I’m keeping positive.  I’ll keep you updated!

xoxo,

Audrey
