My blood pressure was a LITTLE lower, but not much: 140/86. They dipped my urine at the doctor's office and it read the same as the day before. So, they decided to take my blood to test the count in my liver and send me up to triage in labor & delivery to monitor my blood pressure, the baby's heartbeat, and any contractions. Apparently, I have been having contractions....and didn't know.
Off to give blood....which SUCKS (not like True Blood sucks) because I have horrible veins and the girl in the lab yesterday couldn't get me last time and had to call someone else in.
Off to triage, I go. Get checked in, hooked up to the belts for the baby and blood pressure for me.
I was there for several hours. Fell asleep waiting for lab results.
My blood pressure was normal every time it checked over the day.
The doctor came in and said my blood count in my liver was good, however there was A LOT of protein in my urine.
Official diagnosis: mild preeclampsia.
I was sent home with the order of modified bedrest. Minimal activity.
I have to go get my blood pressure checked tomorrow and if I have any symptoms --headache, horrible heartburn, lots of swelling, pains, contractions, cramping --then I'm to go back and it will be baby time.
Modified bedrest is very short....until they call us late Friday night to go in to be induced! They want us to get to 37 weeks--full term. Considering 10 days ago, she weighed 6lbs. 10 oz., her weight is good. :)
Lily will be making her arrival this weekend! 3 weeks early. ♥
(I blame Daddy...he said about 3 months ago, "She's gonna come before the end of July.")
