Terrific news, April, what a relief! These "blips" are no fun & it's hard not to panic -- put your feet up and keep up the good work!

Glad to hear that things are more stable. I had a blip earlier this week, but now mine is stable too. Here's to five more weeks for your little one!

April that's fantastic news. I had a blip in my BP myself last weekend and thought that was it - it's hard not to think that each time you're faced with something changing. Keep on doing what you're doing - hopefully for another five weeks!

Just a little update

Postby april » Sat Mar 03, 637342 11:14 pm

Well I did another 24 hr urine test and turned that in Friday and it went down from 180 to 120. Also, I have been doing alot of resting and my bp is staying in the 120s/80s range with no spikes. So, I am doing much, much better from last weekend, when I thought it was the end for me and this pregnancy. So, now I hope everything holds off until 38wks, because that is when my Dr. said she will induce me, sometimes during that week. Only alittle over 5wks left. I really hope things work out that way.[:)]
