Re: Need reality check - is Pre-E inevitable?

34 weeks is a great place to be if, sounds like you might be heading in that direction but sounds like your doctors are being very proactive and since they are doing a 24hr urine you should know more when that comes back.

Sorry you are going through all of this. Hang in there and don't give up. Keep advocating for yourself. I would ask for another 24hr urine too they can change alot in just a few days.

Re: Side Effects from Steriod shots?

I had the staying up all night thing go on too. I know when I was on hospital bedrest they prescribed ambien maybe they can give that to help counteract the effect if you can't sleep.

Re : Too much medication....

It sounds like you are on the max for the Procardia and labetalol. I was on doses that high my last couple of pregnancy but I was in the hospital on bedrest and would still have to nap every afternoon after I took meds.
