I have now reached the point where I am miserable. Only going to the doctor today made me more miserable. My blood pressure was high. My swelling a concern. Talk of induction next Friday and then my OB came in and said that she wasn't as concerned as the nurse was because there is no protein in my urine but if I start getting headaches or see spots call. The remedy -- put my feet up to reduce swelling, all weekend long and have my husband take care of me. This is when panic set in. My temp started this today and though she is smart and capable, I can't throw her into my job without proper training. Next week, I will be sitting behind her, throwing her to the wolves (i.e. my job). I know I shouldn't worry about work and just worry about myself but I like my job and the people I work with so I'm conflicted.
The other thing I'm worried about ... my husband having to take care of me. I take care of myself and the house and my husband and the thought of having my him take care of me is scary. Since coming home from work, he's waited on me hand and foot and it's nice but I feel like I'm being bossy. He says don't worry about it -- he has it under control.
If my swelling gets worse over the weekend, I have to call the doctor on Monday and probably go on bedrest but we'll see. I am thinking positive that I can just make it through next week and this swelling is just normal.
