Blood work came back OK! No pre-e for me on Christmas. WHEW. I am so relieved.
I'm under strict orders to 'take it easy' which of course means I had to have it spelled out exactly what that means.
I can walk a couple of blocks and do stuff around the house, but honestly I don't even want to walk a couple of blocks. Chicken has become my sherpa and is adapting to her new position quite well.
Her dads came down to the city and we were supposed to meet them for Christmas Eve dinner tonight. Doc says it would be much better if I not go and I agree. I need to be somewhere I am comfortable and can rest and put my feet up. We asked them if they could come here for dinner--after all, the restaurant we would be going to delivers to our house--and they balked and said they'd discuss it.
Are you fucking kidding me?? Such typical alcoholic behavior. Her father has been so concerned about me having twins and keeps saying things like "take good care of my grandkids in there" but god forbid I disrupt his holiday plans with my high risk pregnancy and doctor's orders. Unbelievable.
It's almost 5pm. We were supposed to have an early dinner at 6:30 and we still haven't heard back from them if they are coming over or not. I don't get it. We are seriously less than 8 blocks away from the restaurant. Argh.
There was no sympathy from her mother either who suggested that I just go to the restaurant anyway and find a chair there to put my feet up on. That way I wouldn't ruin anyone's holiday. Chicken reminded her that the Doctor had said it would be best not to go...but I think her impression was that I could just suck it up for one night and I didn't want to or something. Seriously, people. What is WRONG with you??
That just caused me more stress. I'm going to go lay down now, read a book, relax and not let my alcoholic in-laws get to me.
Merry Christmas Eve!!
Update: Chicken is on the phone with them and they are coming. I could care less at this point. Honestly.
