36 week apt :( and trip to L&D

Well I had my 36 week apt today and my BP is still high but has gotten much worse. Today when I first went in it was 145/98 20 mins into my apt and right before I was about to leave she decided to check it one more time and it had went up to 168/104 off to L&D she sent me.... Well I am now on BP meds the baby looks good and I am not allowed to let me feet touch the floor unless I am going to the bathroom... Dr's orders. Thank gosh I only have a few more weeks left.

That stinks, but at least you're in the home stretch!

Glad baby looked good and hopefully the meds will help with your BP!

Oh no! Glad all is well with the babe! Take it easy, Mama! I know bed rest won't be any fun but you're almost there!

Sad sorry to hear about the BP issues.. Hope the meds fix you up, and you make it at least another week!! I know bedrest can be a massive pain in the rear!

Sorry about the BP issues, but it's a good thing it happened at the end of your pregnancy, if it had to happen. Not long at all now and we'll all be talking about how tired we are after being up all night. I'm glad everything looks good with the baby.

This is my third pregnancy and both of my other pregnancies ended in early inductions due to pre e. So this one is just following in the footsteps of the other 2.
