Oh Geesh, where to begin?!?!

Went in for my NST. Baby did great! I had a horrible headache. My usual nurse came into check on me. I told her and she told me that I had a +1 protein. She took my BP, 160/100. They sent me over to the hospital, naturally! UGGHHH! Of course I get there and my BP is good and NO protein in urine. PIH labs came back good, again! My OB came in and asked what the deal was with me? lol She let me go home...after one more reading. It was 137/97. At that time, she said I could go home only if I promised to go home and lay on my left side. I assured her that I would. Right after I post this! :) I asked again for a 'game plan' she said and I quote..."well, we got you to 34 weeks, our goal! If all your labs keep coming back good along with your BP's, we will keep checking your cervix for favorable induction" While it was frustrating, it makes me feel better about our little munchkin growing! Umm....I already washed those preemie outfits, I am afraid we wont need them now! lol I go back Wed...I assume everyday will be one of those "have your bag packed just in case" appointments!

Anyone had BP's fluctuate sooooo much? I was laying in a recliner at the hospital and got 133/73 and then 137/97 all within a half hour! Whats up with that???? Nothing changed as far as stress level, position, etc, etc...

My b/p's were insane, no rhyme or reason.
Just try to do the good ol' left side trick, and STOP READING PREEMIE HORROR STORIES!!![:p]

You've already passed your goal! that is so terrific![:D]

*also, a sidenote, I have tried about a zillion carriers and the one we LOVED was the kangaroo pouch (fleece) at www.kangarookorner.com it is great and easy to wash etc.
since Bella was a shrimp we used it forvever.

I cannot wait to hear all of the wonderful news!!!(because everything is gonna be great!)

Hi Sherry,
I know how frustrated you are. Towards the end with sam, I kept going in for blood work, urine test,Nst's and every time we thought this owuld be the day and they would send me home!! I had enough!! But, when the day came when I finally heard, "how would you guys like to go and have a baby today?" I freaked!! So, hang in there...BTW, the day I went for induction, my bp was 118/80!! It was the lowest it had been in weeks!! So, yes bp's all over the place!!!
