I am sorry you are going through this. It is very scary. As far as I know not all women present necessarily with very high pressures, which can be quite confusing. This makes it important that you are watched closely. What I remember from my own situation is that the doctors always told me that they would not deliver for high protein alone. Has your doctor ordered any labs? If not, I would ask for it.
Bedrest or hospital bedrest can be challenging with a family and small children at home. But if it is necessary, it is the best option to keep you pregnant as long as possible.
How are you feeling today?
