There's No Place Like Home

Yesterday started my official maternity leave from work! It feels good to be at home and kick my feet up.

I finally showed some progress in this weeks doctor appointment. I am dilated to a 1 and 50% effaced. My feet and legs are so swollen and my blood pressure was a little high. The doctor said if my blood pressure goes up he might induce me.

I am thinking I don't want to leave the house until I go into labor. I am sure I will have to leave the house for something, but I don't want to.


  1. My BP started going up toward the end of my pregnancy too. Let them induce you, and what ever you do, try as hard as you can to not go on magnesium something or other. It's good for your BP, but it makes you LOOPY! I can hardly even remember Lily being born, I was so out of it, and I ended up having a c-section anyway. But good luck, and rest and take it easy!

  2. Yay for you! I just started my maternity leave yesterday too! Funny. I'm not dilated at all though. YOu're lucky.

  3. Hi Dianna!Take it easy,relax,enjoy the moment,maybe even write down in a baby book your feelings about the baby before he's born so you can look back on it when he's older.It may seem like an eternity till he comes but after it's over, you think that it went by so quickly & before you know it,he'll be a teenager!So treasure the tender moments of hom being a baby,they truly grow quickly! :( Good luck!
