So the 38th week of my pregnancy was not as fun as the others. One night (truly around 1am) I started to get this HUGE pounding headache and my vision started to go blurry. For a few days, I had a slight headache and figured my shingles nerve damage spread to my eye. Little did I know, it was not shingles but signs of preeclampsia. I knew something was wrong when I couldn't even look at my phone and type. Thankfully, Jon came upstairs and I told him we needed to go in to the ER after speaking with the on-call Doctor. Especially since I was seeing four of him. One Jon is enough :-)
We got there and they started asking a bunch of questions and checked my blood pressure a few times, had me do blood work, an EKG (my chest was also hurting and it shot a tingling sensation into my left arm) and a urine test (yummy). The blood work, EKG and blood pressure all came back normal. But the urine test did have protein in it. They almost had me stay at the hospital for 24-hours to do a 24-hour urine test, but I asked if I could do it at home and they agreed as long as I stay put in bed and come in if anything else happened again. I agreed!
In a weird way, it was nice that it happened so we could see where we would be delivering Marin and how the staff was, etc. Where we delivered Jack, we were treated like royalty, so we were hoping for another great stay.
Jon LOVED the sleeping cot a little too much. So much that I had to wait...and wait...and wait...for him to wake up so we could leave. But he rarely sleeps like a sweet Angel, so I was totally fine watching Channel 5 news for 5 hours....

And here is the lovely Princess at 38 weeks. Marin's ultrasounds resemble Jack's. Same profile! I hope this doesn't sound mean, but ultrasounds pics of their full face is TERRIFYING. So we prefer the profile shots :-)
So Tuesday April 14th is the big induction day. To say we are excited is an understatement. I was induced (also due to placenta issues) with Jack, so I know how it goes! Unless she decides to make her entrance into the world sooner that is :-)
