Feeling like Violet Beauregarde

I was put on bed rest this weekend, due to significant swelling in my feet and spikes in my blood pressure that might be an indication of preeclampsia. This is on top of the fact that, for the last month, I’ve been measuring at least 5 weeks ahead (now it’s 7), because I have too much amniotic fluid. We’ll also find out on Monday through a more detailed ultrasound, whether Nathan himself is huge, or whether my measuring large is just due to too much fluid. Regardless, all of this has me feeling like Violet Beauregarde, from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, albeit without turning blue. I’m wondering where it will end.
