Alright, a quick update! Friday night I went to a wedding! I was up all day running around to get ready! We needed three hair cuts and pantyhose! LOL So, after running around all day my BP was high! It was 160/90. So, on Saturday I laid around and didn't do much of anything! I forgot that I ordered Italian Subs from the Fire Co. and my neighbor dropped them off. That is what we ate for luncg and after eating it I got a terrible pain under my right rib. Well, I called the doctor and he said to go to L&D and he would check my out. All of my labs came back normal, but I was dehydrated and because of the dehydration the baby's heart rate was up! Like 200! So, after I drank two bottles of water the doctor came in and said that he thought it was my gall bladder and he was sending m home! Before he sent me home, he checked my cervix. This was the first time! I joked and said that I was probley tight as a drum and believe it or not, I am 3cm dilated and 50% effaced! So, I go home and on Monday I wake up to my mucus plug falling out! This has never happened to me before. I had a 2:15 appointment and when I was there everything looked good! The midwife checked me and she said that she would go along with my doctor, 3cm and 50% effaced! After that appointment I went up to the hospital for my NST. She had my hooked up for an hour and the baby's heart rate was everywhere. 121-173!! She called up to L&D and a resident looked at it and he said to keep me hooked up for another hour! So, after another hour she did a BPP and the baby scored 7-8 (I think?). So, she called my OB and they decided to send me to L&D for an induction. When I got up there they did another NST & BPP. The NST looked good and the baby got another 7-8 on the BPP! He said that they baby wasn't practice breathing when they wanted it to, so that is why it got a 7. So, We decided to send me home! He checked me again ad this time I was 4cm dilated and 80-90% effaced! He told me to go home and he would see me in his office on Thursday. Well, yesterday I thought for sure I was going into labor and of course it was false! But my Blood Pressure is up again! 160's (two 170's)/ high 90's! Should I call? I don't have any headache's my swelling is really about gone and I feel good! What do you guys think? I will be 38 weeks on friday and because I have GD he wants me to get as close to 38 weeks that I can! I am scheduled for an induction on the 22nd!
Sorry it is so long!
