Back in labor and delivery guys!

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!

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.

I think you could be right about the bp meds masking pre-e, but let's see what your results are. In the meantime hang in there, I'll be checking in to see any posts from you.

That's exactly what the doctors mean. The meds are working and keeping your BP in check, yet the doctors dont know how high your BP would be without meds, which in turn makes it difficult to determine where you are at. Thinking of you.

Not me Holly, the Dr and a nurse said that about meds masking. Not me. Lol. I have no clue! Anyway, about an hour ago, I'm eating chicken my husband brought. As you guys know, we aren't on diet restriction as a diet low in sodium does nothing for pre-e. Apparently a diet low in sodium isn't important for them period as I've not been on restriction this vist, last visit, time before that, etc. I'm waiting on results as we speak (24 hour). Anyway, my bp has a high reading since the last 2 hours... Already told them by bp creeps up at night, which is why we came in the 1st place yesterday. It was 157/117. The nurse rushes in and think its an error wanting to retake. I'm thinking, hello???!? It's not an error... I've already told you my bp is all over and has been the past three weeks. It's alarming to them but not surprising to me. She takes again, high. She notices I am eating chicken and says "no wonder!" Omg. I'm already irritated. I'm like, ma'am this has nothing to do with my bp. Do you think it's gone up all of a sudden because of chicken?! I've eaten sodium laced foods all day! Also, I'm probably headed towards pre-e." Ugh. I just get so annoyed with a nurse who doesn't know this. It never crossed her mind that I wasn't on a restricted diet?! Or maybe she just didn't take the time to notice before spewing out her nonsense about my chicken! Lol.
