Update~good news for today.

Things look a but mreo stable at the moment. My blood pressure remains very high, and I still have all the symptoms of swelling, headache, & epigastric pain. I have been started on a 2nd BP med & hopefully the combo of the two helps.

My labwork came back "not too bad", so I am guessing this means it wasn't perfect but not bad enough to act on just yet. I am in the process of collecting a 24 hr urine that will give us more answers.

I had an ultrasound done, BB scored 8/8 on the BPP which is awesome. It looks like I caught these BP issues pretty early on, before they started to affect my placenta, etc. So as long as we watch it closely hopefully we can be on top of it. BB weighs an estimated 6lbs 6ozs! Thats a good size for this gestation! They gave me a few pictures of the face, too cute I think he or she has daddy's nose, a round face like momma & chunky monkey cheeks. I guess we will see sooner then later!

Dr.J is back in town tomorrow & I will talk to him more about his plan. My suspicion, knowing how he practices & what the concerns are is that he will want me to remain admitted until we induce or I go into labour on my own. I have been having soem cramps & inconsistent contractions, the Dr thinks maybe my body knows its time anyways. I guess we will see!

Sounds like you might be a Mommy sooner rather than later! You're in my thoughts and prayers and definitely on my mind today! Your BB is pretty far along! Stay strong and relaxed and keep looking at BB's picture!

Good luck, I will be thinking of you and BB.
