Hi guys, sorry it's been a few days! Update... Since I started the labetalol I have felt remarkably better! It took a few days for everything to even out and for the med to work the entire 12 hours, but now my pressures are consistently 120-130s/80-90. Still a little high for me, but yay better than how I was feeling previously! Swelling has gone down, lost four lbs from last weeks appt to this week. I'm able to do more around the house also. According to my ob yesterday, baby is still really high, but this is my fourth, so I know he probably won't drop til I go into labor... I now have to go for nonstress tests twice a week and bpps (ultrasounds) once weekly until I have him. I Joe 36 w 3 days today and he said he won't let me go past 39 weeks. I thought that was a little far, but I guess he's okay with me continuing since I'm doing well on the meds... The headache came and went according to my pressures the first three days on labetalol, but since then it's been gone, thank goodness!!! Hopefully things continue on a positive note! Thanks again everyone for your support and encouragement! It's nice to know other people know what you're going through! I'll keep you guys updated!
