Hello Again,
We are at 37 1/7 and we went in to L and D today. Julie's NST was great, baby is great and two ultrasounds since my last entry have confirmed that Eamonn is growing right on track (although we know that those can be off by 2-3 weeks in the third trimester. Julie has been maintaining great BP's at home (120's over low 80's). Until we are at the doctor's then 145/98- 155/101. We spent five hours at L and D tonight. Urine came back negative for protein, Blood work normal, no headache, no upper right abdominal pain, no edema. Just PIH. They did a pelvic exam and she is +2. Her BP finally went down after relaxing and an hour of hand and foot messages (I am glad we went to a class on this with our Daughter's pregnancy). BP settled at 121/82 and we are home with another 24 hr urine test. Appt on Wednesday, Then next Monday. If all remains the same they will probably induce at 39 weeks. I predict April 24th. Thanks for all the advice over the last few weeks.
