4/14/2004 Update on Amanda

Postby amandab » Wed Apr 14, 2004 07:15 am

A quick update on Amanda. Her blood pressure spiked yesterday topping out at 180/100. We thought for sure that the doctor would deliver when she saw that bp, but she didn't. She did move Amanda back to Labor and Delivery for a closer watch, ordered blood work more often, more nst's etc. We had a good ultrasound scan by the peri last night and Baby B got a perfect 10 on the peri's rating system for a healthy fetus. So, no problems with blood/oxygen flow and the placenta is firmly attached.

So glad that your baby is a perfect "10." I hope that Amanda can keep her bp's down. We are all thinking of her and hoping for the best!

Good luck Tim and Amanda, hope things stay stable! Can't wait to hear that "Baby B" is safely here and that we can coo over pics.

That's a small hint to keep the camera at hand at all times Tim [;)][:o)]
