Pilgrim: Out with Injury for 4 weeks...

No it's not a headline for the St George Leader Sports Page (in ref to my beloved Dragons). I have been sidelined (effective last night) by my Obstetrician for high blood pressure and swollen feet that won't go down. If I do rest I lessen my chances of landing in hospital pre-birth (but there are no guarantees). Now this isn't unusual for particularly first-time mums, but your prayers and support would be greatly appreciated as this is not easy for a girl who always was put in the "fidget" queue at Physical Culture when she was little.

Hopefully this means more blogs (although I cannot guarantee that they will be action packed).

Sounds like you need some soothing quality time with the Xbox.

Or that could be just a guy thing.

Make sure you DO rest - when they put me in hospital for high blood pressure i was only allowed out of bed to go to the toilet! No walking around or anything. Tough when you have "restless legs" syndrome (which I did at the end of my pregnancy. Don't stress if your BP doesn't go down. It is VERY normal - and they can fix it with drugs (I was on blood pressure medication for a week). It doesn't mean anything long term either. Take the opportunity to rest as much as possible now - they may induce you. Perhaps you will be cuddling bubs before you anticipated. All the best, and prayers!

Hey Kath, hang in there. Not so many weeks to go now, and from my completely inexperienced point of view I'm guessing you might want to be paying a lot of attention to rest now - better stock up for when bub arrives!
