So, we have been managing hypertension since 25 weeks with bedrest and aldomet (I am maxed on it at this point). I have not had protein in the urine or any other health issues. Yetserday, I had a blinding headache and higher BPs at the office but fine at home. The doc ordered PIH panel which came back within normal range and a 24 hour uring collection. I have received the results as 308...pre-e diagnosis. However, my BPs all day have been excellent (115-125/70s). So, they are letting me continue bedrest at home unless I develop other symptoms (headache comes back, epigastric pain, visual stuff, or BP goes over 140/90). Would I be considered mild or severe pre-e? I would like to stay at home for the weekend, it is my DHs birthday. I developed HELLP very quickly in my 1st (stillborn at 24 weeks) and had PIH with my second. Just worried, as you know, I will be 35 weeks on Sunday. I think that's ok for him even though he is small for his age (19th percentile at 2 weeks ago). Thoughts?
