oh NO Molly!!!!!! did you have steriod shots already? Your at 30 weeks, so your in a great spot at least. I will keep my thoughts with you that PE is not coming! Hang in there, and be proactive on your treatment! I certainly will hope for 2 more weeks for your baby cooking!

....Preeclampsia could be on the horizon. UGGGGGGGH!

Went in for my NST, and had three different BP readings with my bottom number between 106-111. I am allowed to be in the 80's-90's due to being chronic. Needless to say, anything over 100 is too high for even me. I was sent down to triage, had labs drawn, more BP checks. My uric acid numbers are starting to creep up and with the rise in my BP, indicates that preeclampsia is starting to show. I have to go back into triage on Sunday for another blood draw for a recheck.

The doctor did not increase/change my BP medications, which I found odd.

Today, I hit 30 weeks. I am guessing that my numbers from Sunday's lab will give a better idea of where this is all going. I am hoping that we can squeeze in another 2 weeks.
