The good news is I am coming to you live from my couch, and not the hospital bed they wanted me in. I am not on bed rest, but I am not to do anything either due to my blood pressure readings. That means no cleaning, exercising, excitement, etc until my next appointment rapidly scheduled for Monday. Lovely. Simply lovely given it's Christmas week. And no we won't recall my request to Gibbs to please let's not just this one year host his family on Christmas Day, because... you know... he totally ignored my plea. But that's a whole different story for another day.
Because I was able to get out of a hospital admission, I was left to the horrors of additional tubes of blood drawn today- above and beyond the 1 hour glucose testing. My current diagnosis is NOS mild pre-eclampsia. They are trying to rule that out. If indeed it is ruled out, which could very well happen due to the lack of protein in my urine, the likely diagnosis will be: pregnancy induced hypertension. Which totally has the makings of a comical irony coming from someone with a history of low/extremely low blood pressure.
The fun and better news is we had our 3D/4D sonogram today! Little Miss Thang is active- *ahem* as if I, and we, were not already aware of this. She also has chipmunk cheeks, was highly uncooperative just as she was during the 20 week sono, and continues to enjoy her arm hovering near/at her head.
Without further ado here she, girl number three, is!
From what we can see here, she looks just like Ziva.
Here you can see her ear and hand on her face.
Finally here, she is found in her frequent sonogram pose- which is identical to Ziva's mannerisms too. You can see her ear, elbow and knee to her chest.
