Thanks for thinking of me! I went in for a second try at the amnio on the 19th and told te dr the baby hadnt been moving as much over the weekend. He decided to skip the amnio for the time being and just admit me and monitor her. My labs came back good but they were just looking for a reason to deliver at that point b/c of the headaches, visual suff and PIH. I was 37w5d. The monitored me overnight and decided that given the decrease in her movement (even though she apparently likd the monitors and moved well as long as they were strapped on) they wanted to deliver anyway instead of waiting around. This dr was a saint and I wish I had found him earlier in my pregnancy as to not have had to deal with the stress from the others. So delivery was set for the following morning. They came in and did pre-op labs and determined that my platelets had fallen from 160s to the 120s within a day or two so they had to order blood to have in the OR with me just incase. Everything went well with the c-section and Harper Lily was born at 10am on the Tuesday the 20th weighing 7 lbs 0.5oz, 21 inches, and absolutely perfect and such a sweet baby!
My BP went back down almost to my normal immediately after surgery and has stayed down. The headaches went away but the past week Ive been experiencing different headaches (I think just due to hormones re-adjusting) but the visual stuff is gone too!
