Yesterday did not turn out the way I planned it.
I had a routine doctor's appointment scheduled and then my mom and I were going to grab some lunch. However, at my apointment, my blood pressure was high, and after re-taking it 3 times, Dr. Wisebaker decided to send me to the hopsital for further evaluation. That in and of itself was enough to make my blood pressure go up!
At the hospital, they hooked me to some monitors and basically just watched me for roughly 2 hours. My blood pressure dropped and the babies looked great, so that was good. My blood work showed my kidneys aren't filtering as well as they should, so I have to do this lovely 24 hour urine collection. ANd let me tell you how fun it is!
I am going back today for another NST and hopefully will also get the results from my 24 catch. I just have a feeling that these babies are going to be coming sooner rather than later!
Thanks for all the prayers from my friends and loved ones. I appreciate it so much!
UPDATE** Mike and I got home about an hour ago from our second trip to the hospital. Blood Pressure kept fluctuating, but remained steady and low once I was on my left side. My lab results showed that I am definitely mildly pre-eclamptic, so they have me on bedrest, and I have to take my blood pressure 2x a day and watch for other symptoms. They also gave me a steroid shot and I have to go back tomorrow for the 2nd one. I guess they just want to be on the safe side in case my pre-eclampsia goes from mild to severe in a short amount of time and the steroids will hopefully help mature the babies lungs.
