Baby showers and bed rest

Sorry about the lack in posting recently.  As I'm sure you've guessed, I've been pretty busy with getting ready for the new baby.

Saturday, my family through a surprise shower for me.  It was really nice.  I had a great time and the food was so good.  Earlier in the day we went out for pizza at Antonio's in the River City Market.  It's such good pizza!!! Then, we went to Costco.  While we were shopping, I started to feel funny and it got to the point I thought that I might pass out.  Shawn's mom checked my blood sugar and it ended up being quite high.  I've never had blood sugar problems.  We checked it a couple more times as the night went on and it was normal again.

Sunday, we just kind of lounged around the house.  Around the same time of day as the day before, I started to feel funny again.  By the time I let Shawn call the doctor on call, they wanted me to come in to Labor and Delivery to be checked out.  They put me on the monitors, drew some blood and checked my blood sugar.  My blood sugar was fine and the baby was fine.  I was having some contractions, more frequently than I knew about.  They weren't big, but there were a lot of them none the less.  My blood came back low in iron and potassium. 

Monday, once again, I felt funny.  The doctor had me come in for a glucose screening. 

Yesterday, I had a doctor's appointment in the morning.  He told me that my iron is still low but I'm not diabetic.  He also put me on bed rest, which is where I am now.

I'm exhausted, sore, and don't feel to well but I'm hanging in there.  The rest of the family has been wonderful and very concerned.  I get lots of phone calls and facebook messages asking how I'm doing.  I have less than a week until Sydney gets here.  It's really starting to feel real.
