37w 3d, H1N1, possibly Pre-e

Getting big!! I am hoping I am not having signs of pre-e but rather just having end of pregnancy symptoms! Feet & hands are swollen as heck, I've gained 4-5 lbs in a week, slightly high BP. I haven't been to the doctor in a week. I was suppose to go in tomorrow but that leads into the H1N1 situation.
A kid in my grade level has a confirmed case of H1N1. I found this out this morning after being called in the principals office. So I was sent to urgent care. I thought they would swab my nose to test me for influenza A but nope they gave me a script for Tamiflu and sent me on my way. SO the OB's office won't let me come in till Monday now! I understand they don't want anyone else infected if in case I do end up with it. I think if my BP was up a lot higher they'd want me to go to the hospital or the urgent care again.
Besides that things are going... she is moving around like crazy. I feel her really LOW in my booty and crotch! ITs fun teaching and having a stabbing feeling down there! OUCH! I am so stressed out about leaving a sub in my room for that long! I am also having a hard time planning stuff for her... I am doing 2 weeks worth and thats it. She probably won't even do half the stuff I leave so its hard to plan too much!!

Can't wait to meet Lillian and hold her in my arms!!

wow how scary for you, i hope your ok.

The last few weeks are the worst, the waiting to meet your baby is the hardest thing, but it's so worth the wait!

I would have to agree with Becky the last few weeks ARE the worst. But they will come quick! Praying for ya!

You can see how much lower she is now! It won't be long until Lillian is here.

That's a lot to take in all at once, I'm sure. Hopefully, you have a good sub and good co-workers that can help your sub if needed. I would think that you could just leave a general outline/plans anyway. There's no way you can plan every day for a period that long!

Hopefully you don't have too much waiting ahead of you and you'll be holding that beautiful baby soon.
