Back to work

I went back to the doctor on Wednesday and got the "all clear" to start back to work part-time. I can only work half of each day, but I guess that's better than nothing. My blood pressure was back down (the bottom number is still a little high, but nothing he's worried about), and the swelling has gone down quite a bit. I have ankle bones! :) I even managed to lose a couple of pounds of fluid, so he was pleased with the bed rest results. I'm supposed to be resting with my feet up when I'm not at work, so I should probably make this quick and get back to bed.

I don't think there's been a huge change in belly size, but some people (ahem, Rhonda) like to be kept up-to-date with frequent pictures since they are far away. :) For all those interested, here's the most recent belly shot--32 weeks!
I can't believe we only have 6 1/2 weeks until she's here!!!

You are so cute! Glad your BP is down.

Yeay! Better BP - Boo! Have to go back to work. :) Just kidding. Staying busy for half a day and then resting half a day will make the rest of the time go by fast! Can't wait to see you next month.

Glad you're better. Your baby will be there soon enough, making you pull out your hair. ^_^ J/k, you and Casey will be great. What I hear is that the first part is great because the baby just sleeps all day. You can find out if that's true or not. ^_^

You have ankle bones? Awesome! I have them in the mornings, but they're gone by about 2pm. ;) Glad you're out and about again!
