Well, I'm back from my appointment.
I went in for my regular appointment on Tuesday and they admitted me to the hospital. I just got back today which happens to be our 5th wedding anniversary and I can't do anything. I'm on strict bedrest with bathroom privledges only. They ran all the labs again, stabilized my blood pressures, increased my meds, did an NST and biophysical profile and I have to go back next Tuesday for another appointment. They also want me to start doing NST's twice a week but I can only get down there (45 min drive) on Tues, Wed, Thurs and they want the NST's to be 3 days apart so I may have to just have them once a week. Anyway, my pressures were 186/108 when I went in and are now in the 150/90's range. Baby is measuring big though (2lb 4oz) and plenty of fluid. I had gained 6lbs in a week and my Dr. commented on how "puffy" I looked. This pregnancy is just going by so slow. How am I supposed to be on strict bedrest with 3 other kids and a husband who doesn't think it's "that big of a deal". I'm now 27 weeks btw.
