I was admitted to the hospital on 8/18 and I'm going to be here for the long haul. We've been dreading the hospital bed rest... and here it is! I'm going to be in here until it's baby time. I'm preeclamptic so I could have the baby tomorrow or in 2 weeks. I just lay here and they take my blood pressure all day and monitor the baby. Baby Georgia looks great, it's my preeclampsia that is keeping me. If I remain "stable" then they will do an amnio (next week- or the week after?) to check on Georgia's lungs to see if they have matured enough to pop her out. Depends on when the Doctors want to do the procedure. Or... I could "get worse" and have her any day. It's also a bummer that I'm at Good Samaritan (the hospital that cares for high risk deliveries) because it's about 30 minutes from home.
