Anton's daycare provider just called a little while ago. Her daughter is in the hospital right now being induced. She has pre-eclampsia, IUGR of the baby and a fever. On top of that, the baby's heartbeat is decelerating with every contraction. She is not at the best hospital in town by any means. I can't figure out why they haven't done a c-section yet. Her mom said her BP is really high and she's due next week, so she's already almost 39 weeks. She's only 19 too. I saw her on Wed and she looked awful. Her face was all swollen so I was asking her if she had any Pre-e symptoms, headaches, vision changes, she said no. She swore she just had a cold. She was seeing her OB on Friday and they ordered a 24 hr urine. They got the results this morning and ordered her to L& D right away. She was supposed to have an ultrasound tomorrow b/c they knew the baby was too small. Please say some prayers that both she and her little girl make it through okay.
