Hi Beth! I hope your BP is remaining good at home. Did the doc say anything in regards to taking the BP reading laying down? Just curious.

Beth, just checking on you... how was the appointment?

I'm hoping you're in the hospital having that little one, myself.

Those last couple of weeks can feel like forever-especially when you are afraid things are going to turn. Keep the faith. You really won't be pg forever!

Well after a few hours of monitoring they sent me home. My BP came down to about 138/86 with rest. Of course they always take it when I am lying in a bed on my back. They didn't feel it was necessary to do bloodwork or a 24 hour again at this point, which confuses me. They just did a regular dip which showed no traces of protein. They did do a NST and the baby passed beautifully! I see my OB tomorrow at 12:30 tomorrow and I will be asking him why they always take it lying down when that is not consistent with my life at home (I have a 20 month old!!). They put me on complete bedrest and said to come back if my headaches get worse...yada yada yada. I guess I am glad it came down. I just want this all to be over with[:(]

Beth, hoping the OB keeps you monitored for a time. I know this home stretch is rough. Hopefully you'll have that precious baby soon!

My BP hit 154/100 this morning and it comes down while lying on my side...but not much, only to like 140/85. I called my OB and I am going in to be monitored! I've been having headaches still and some spots in my eyes so hopefully they will just admit me! I'm 37w4d and can't take much more of the back and forth!
