So at 28 weeks pregnant and 22 years old I went to my local day unit as I hadn't felt baby move fir a while everything was fine other than slightly elevated blood pressure this was 140/93 although these readings were high from the beginning of my pregnancy they were Normal readings pre pregnancy, I had no protein, I explained to the midwives and doctor that I was really anxious as my mum had pre eclampsia with all 4 children including eclampsia with one, so they referred me to a consultant. 30 weeks I see my consultant trace of protein high Bp even for me 164/98 put me on labetalol 2 x daily at this point I had developed a seriously bad headache, sent home with Bp Medes and told to be seen in day unit every other day for Bp,urine and blood tests, whilst seeing the consultant once a week, 31 weeks pretty much goes by the same way I feel so poorly I don't move out of bed between appointments but only a trace protein and back to 140/90 Bo. 32 weeks protein up to + bp 154/101 up my bp meds send me home we mild pre eclampsia. 34weeks went from ++ to ++++ protein in the space of 2 days this was Monday had blood tests all was well. Saw consultant Wednesday who looked at me and said I'm surprised your still stable the amount of protein your spilling, I think we need to keep a close eye on you as you could be one of these people that take us by surprise and go down hill rapidly. At this point I tell him that I'm feeling worse every day my headache is making me sick and I've got a really funny pain in my bump as well as pain in my shoulder, he looked at my blood tests from Monday and my took Bp all was ok (bearing in mind I'm on Bp tablets now) he did a scan on baby and she's growing steadily although a little small. So all is good on that front to. Anyway the pain in my shoulder and sickness is getting worse, I've got blood tests again this after noon do you think things could have drastically changed since Monday? I'm really fed up of being sent home feeling unwell and spending the days in between worrying that things have gotten worse.
My consultant has said that he's expecting things to change but if they don't he will deliver in 2 weeks.
