Still here--and still preggers

Thirty-eight weeks today and thinking it would be really cool to have a 10-10-10 baby, but Mr. Nolan is proving to be anything but predictable. I've gotten pretty gosh-darned uncomfortable in the last two weeks or so. The good news? My platelet count was actually UP to 96,000 at the last draw, which is a MUCH better reading; I have a final blood draw this Wednesday to determine exactly what our plan is. The not-so-good news? I've got high blood pressure. A trip to labor & deliver Wednesday evening revealed that it's fine, though, if I'm lying on my left side. I had some other testing done on Thursday & Friday just to confirm that it's not preeclampsia, and I didn't hear back from the doctor, so I'm assuming it's not. I do try to make sure I spend a good part of my day lying on my side, though, which equals BORING. I still have a bad feeling this kid might try to come before next Monday, which puts us in a bit of a pickle because our wonderful Aiden-watcher MiMi is visiting GA for Christopher's 2nd birthday (and I hope they're all having fun!). Let's just say if I go into labor, we're going to have to get very creative around here. :)

Yesterday, Mike took Aiden to an open-house at the Fire Station, partly so they could have some good father-son time, and partly so I could watch my Buckeyes play without having to worry about scaring Aiden (he spent most of last weekend telling me "Too loud, Mommy!" or "That's a bad word, Mommy!"). Mike got some great pictures, so enjoy :)


  1. If he comes before MiMi can watch Aiden and we can help in any way...please let us know!

  2. Praying those platelets stay know I've been there before (only without a c-section).

    And, that bp maintains itself.
