Update on Amanda from her husband

Hey everybody,

I know Amanda really cares about all of you guys on here and she would want you to get an update on her condition. She went in for her peri appointment today and she saw on her doppler that the blood pressure for Baby B is higher than it has been, so she sent us to the ob for an nst and to check urine. Those checked out, but her bp was too high around 135/90 so she's in the hospital at least for tonight for observation. If she comes home, most likely she'll be on bedrest from here on out. Wish us luck! Good luck to you all!

-Tim

Ok, another quick update before bed. It looks like Amanda will be in the hospital until she delivers which sounds like it could be any time in the next 6 weeks. Amanda's bp is doing good now that she's laying down and Baby B's heart rate is good too. They gave her the first of 2 steroid shots tonight for Baby B's lung development. She'll be sore in the morning, but it's worth it. I will be checking Amanda's email if you want to email and ask for her hospital room info, and I'll send it to you. Thanks for all of the well wishes!
