Thanks Holly and Sam! I'm still here. That's good but I'm sure you can all relate to me wanting to go home! My 24 hour will be done in an hour and a half and then I just wait for the results. I'll keep you posted! Also, my bp hasn't been high since yesterday. Go figure! They keep mentioning my meds masking pre-e. I'm kinda confused about this. Does this mean the high bp is a manifestation of pre-e but the meds are keeping my pressure low? I guess I should wait for urinalysis and go from there.

So, bp's been all over the place the past week as high as 160/104. It's never going back to normal though lately. This morning, 154/104... When I got home from work, 166/105. I came straight here. 2+ protein which I was happy about although I know the dipsticks aren't as reliable. They're going to admit me, up my meds, monitor the change, monitor baby, and do a 24 hour urinalysis. I'm happy about all the monitoring, curious to see the results. I'll keep you guys posted. Wish me luck!
