That sounds good, Crystal. I'm happy they are repeating the 24-hour right away. Keep us posted and take care!

I'm so glad to hear that they are going to take away that catheter - those ARE awful - you are so right! For what it's worth I also don't think you can ever be too careful or proactive - I think you did absolutely the right thing. It sounds like you guys are being watched carefully and that Jack is doing great...

Just a little while longer - keep up that baby cooking!

Thanks girls!!

He came in this am around 10:45. He says right now he would call it mild preeclampsia and they are going to keep me until AT LEAST tuesday. Repeat 24 hour starting at 6am tomorrow. But good news is..I can pee in the cap instead of a catheter! YaY! ugh I hate those durn catheters! Jack is looking great on the monitors. He has great variables and no decels. :) yay!

Crystal,
I have everything on my body crossed. I know you and Jack will be fine. It is different than with Addison, but I know how hard it is anyway. Praying, Praying, Praying. You're a GREAT momma and you know better than anyone that you can never be TOO careful. Listen to your body, your heart and your head and do whatever you have to do. Who cares what ANYONE else says or thinks!! Thanks for keeping us updated! Ethan says he's thinking of you all and Addy and Ella are being guardian angels...it helps to have people in high places, I promise!! Thinking of you all every second!

Love,
Nikki, Ethan and Angel Ella

I think that it is totally normal to make comparisons. I also think that it is important to know that your body is capable of going downhill quickly. I'm glad that you seem to be stabilizing in the hospital.

((hugs)) I am glad your pressures have stabilized. I think you were absolutely right to go in and get checked out. FWIW my protein was in the 400 range when I was admitted for the duration at 31 weeks with Raleigh and we made it to 34 weeks. If you are a long way from the hospital they might factor that into whether you should go home or not. Hang in there and keep us posted.

Protein was 418. The nurse this morning said I'm a little hyper flexic? But who knows. Blood pressure is awesome. 120/57. I think I will be going home sometime today. I had my second steriod shot last night. Hoping he will just send me home and redo the 24 hour again next week? I know they all think I'm nuts. Especially with my pressures like they are now. Oh well.. I'm just glad its not too bad yet. With Addison my protein went from 600 to over 2700 from Friday to Monday. That is kind of scary. I try not to compare everything with her because I know every pregnancy is different but its really hard not to. Thank you for the prayers and positive thoughts!!
