Only a couple of challenges really. Yesterday's job interview was one of them. And Rosie has decided to show a bit of interest in using the toilet in the last week or two, and past experience toilet training my children has not been a quick and easy process. I've been trying to go with the flow (pardon the pun...there have been a few flows onto the floor but not yet into the toilet) and not expecting too much given the approaching upheaval that she doesn't realise is coming.
So I'd almost forgotten in the middle of all this enjoyment that we are about to have a baby. Today's clinic appointment was a bit of a shock. After the past few weeks of "fine, see you in a fortnight/see you next week," today there were no more appointments to be made.
Next Tuesday I am being admitted to hospital in the afternoon. The next day I will be having the baby. And today, my blood pressure was up a bit. Something in the urine sample that shouldn't be there. Might have to go onto antibiotics later in the week if it grows something. Had to go and have a blood test. Was given the talk about pre-eclampsia symptoms to watch out for. Blood glucose levels have been okay for the past week but today they have been a bit up and down even though my eating hasn't changed much.
I'm now getting a little bit nervous that I might not make it to next Tuesday. I haven't packed a bag for hospital yet....I thought if I did, it might be tempting the baby to come early again. But I am charging up the camera battery. And tomorrow morning (school teachers are having a stop work meeting so the boys don't have to go to school till after recess) I might just pop a few things into a bag.
Just in case.
