After 24-hours, I went back in to get another blood pressure check and turn in my test. My blood pressure was lower, but not low enough that they weren't concerned. They needed my urine and blood test results to decide what to do, so they sent me on my way :)
Yesterday they called and there is indeed a high amount of protein in my urine, so induction it is! They told me to "take it easy" for the weekend and depending on the status of things-- I will either be induced this coming week or the beginning of the next week! Crazy! It turns out that despite my earlier thoughts of my child hating me and making it his life's goal to inflict pain, (with the 4 months of puking, the 3 week long larengitis/croup, acid reflux, etc.)-- he may have actually listened when I told him that he was going to come early! he he he
With the news that we have 2-3 weeks less than we thought...our lives have gone into crazy mode! Luckily my parents have been in town and have lent a HUGE helping hand, and Ryan's family is close by! The nursey is almost complete...the baby is getting ready...now we just have to work on getting mom and dad ready...I'm not sure that will ever happen, but Ready or Not--he's coming!

We decided on a bright sky blue for the walls...
Once the bead board was finished and looking great, I had already decided that I wanted some sort of cute sports mural painted on the wall. As it turns out, having someone paint on walls is also ridiculously expensive... So I approached my extremely talented husband, who just so happens to be an amazing artist! He said no. In my state of motherly determination, I decided to take art lessons so that I could attempt painting on the walls. It would only cost a few hundred dollars and probably a whole lot of stress on a pregnant woman, but oh well! Ryan pretty much shattered my dreams with a look at our bank account, and I thought I my perfect nursey was ruined...until he gave in and said he would paint the murals!!! Yay! (Now you may be thinking to yourself, "hey, she totally conned him into doing that!" and if that is indeed what you were thinking, you are correct)
As you can tell, Ryan is awesome! He is still working on the paintings, and I am still finishing up all the other decorations...but when it's done, I will be sure to put up more pictures! We only have 5 weeks to finish getting ready for Camden to arrive!! Can't wait :)
