Well Crapola

I had to go to the doctor today. Over the weekend and into today I had insane cramping, blurry vision, and monster headaches. I called the morning they told me to come right in, took my blood pressure it was 157/90 then she took it again and it was 150/90.

My results from my 24 hour urine test showed elevated protein. She ran another urine test today and it also had a good amount of protein. They dont want to call it pre-e just yet, but they are pretty sure thats what it is.

They upped my current bp medication to double what it is now and put me on modified bedrest. No going outside in the heat unless its to get in the car or get the mail, no working out, nothing that may increase my bp basically. And I am to sit or lie as much as possible.
Im also half a cm dialated... Shok No good.

I have to go back in on Thursday for more bp tests and urine tests.

If things dont get better I will be put on full bedrest. :/
Can I please catch a freaking break!!!! UGH

OH NO!!! I'm so sorry!!! I hope they can control things for you and you can at least make it to a safe point for you and baby in the pregnancy before something HAS to be done.

I'll be praying for you!

It's common for a woman who has had a baby before to be at least a fingertip dilated all the time.

That sucks about the pre-e though. I may be right there with you, unfortunately.

Thanks ladies. Trying to stay positive, but even with laying around with feet elevated I swelled up like a balloon this afternoon/evening. My feet and fingers are little sausages and my ankles are turning into kankles! ): Im making hubby give me a rub down before bed.
