Sorry to hear you had to spend the weekend in the hospital! How often will you be having appts now? Are they going to start NSTs and/or BPP and U/S? Are you monitoring your BP at home and doing kick counts?

I hope it was just a small blip & that you have many, many weeks more of baby baking time! Hang in there!

Weekend in the hospital

Postby cindergretta » Tue Mar 05, 2013 01:29 pm

I went for an appt on Friday, was admitted, and was released yesterday. My peri figures I can be home for another 2-3 weeks before going back in to the hospital until delivery. I am 28 weeks.

I have never had things start sliding downhill this early. It has always been after 30 weeks with delivery between 34-36 weeks. I am pretty nervous now.

I see my peri on Friday again.

He upped my Atenolol and doubled my Hydralazine. I hope it buys Bellyfish a lot more time, but I am keeping my expectations low. :-/
