So just got home. I've been upgraded to strict bedrest. Blood pressure is fine as long as I lie down but urine protein was +2. I still have my regular doctor appointment in the morning. Baby still is doing alright. They said my urine is too dark and I need to drink more water but I feel like I'm drowning in water to begin with already. I will do my best to get more water in.
Finally the doctor's office got back to me and they did say my bloodwork from Thursday was normal but because of my symptoms they want me to go into L&D to be checked out. My mom lives 2 miles away and works from home so I was able to ask her for a ride since my husband and I only have one car and it's here with me. So waiting for her right now. Ugh I am worried that I will be going in for nothing though because I do tend to worry about things but better safe than sorry.
Just to be prepared, make sure you take a bag with you to your doctor's appointment. Hope you were able to talk to your doctor. Call L&D (even if it's in the middle of the night), that's what they are there for.
Hi! I'm so sorry you are having to go through all this...it sounds like it came on really fast. I'm glad that they have you going in for an nst..but until then just keep up with your kick counts and that should make you feel better. It's sounds like they are watching you very closely which is so good...and it's great that you have made it this far! I'll be praying that you and your little one do well..and hang in there!
