So, the doctors and nurses I work with were very concerned about my high blood pressure, so they drove me to the nearest L&D (I see a midwife group affiliated with anothe hospital further away). The local L&D did a pre-e work-up and checked my BP again and said I was good for discharge and just follow-up later this week with my midwife. Well, I really just didn't feel comfortable with that. So, I talked to me midwife and she said to come to see her right then (it was about 7:30pm at this point). So, we drove to the other hospital and they re-did some of the tests and checked me out. She decided I was okay, but she's concerned things could turn bad pretty quickly. I work 80 hours a week right now. So, she decided not to clear me to go back to work and put me on home bed rest. I'm going to see a perinatologist on Thursday and see what he thinks. In the meantime I am checking my BP at home daily. I'm really glad the midwife is taking my concerns seriously. Hopefully we can avoid things taking a turn for the worse before delivery.
Thanks so much to you for replying to to my post. It motivated me to have the nurse take my blood pressure when I did. Many thanks
