I finally lost the battle with my blood pressure. I can't keep it down even though i've fought so hard to try to keep it there. With rest my BP goes back to normal IF I lay only on my left side. If I lay on my back or right side it goes up to 170's over low 100's. I know there's nothing I can do to make it stay down, it's just my body's way of telling me that the baby is there and that it doesn't like it.

Tuesday I go in for an amniocentesis to see if my little one's lungs are developed. If they are he wants to induce me and get this baby out so both of us aren't endangered even more. It's been really hard to keep her in because she's like one of the babies from Alien, she feels like she's always moving and trying to pop out of my stomach.

I am hoping everything goes well and that I still have a healthy little girl despite only being 36 weeks this Saturday.
