Thank you everyone. I'm doing ok but definately feeling what I have labeled the Mag Lag. Everything is going slow, I can't lift my legs high enough to get them on the bed but its getting better. My swelling has decreased a good 60%, I was told that Sat you couldnt even see my eyes and I was bursting blood vessels in my eyes , so I look like someone who got punched a couple times with my blood shot eyes. My hands have gone down alot, My BP is still up there 144/90 but I feel a whole lot better.

Aidyn is nursing well, he goes through some difficulty breathing at times but Pedi said its nothing to worry about because he is able to recover himself from those episodes. His Bilirubin is 14 so back to the hosp tom for another bili level. He dropped from 6 2 to 5 12 but thats normal too... He is doing great!!!!

Well after all that Baby Aidyn was born 10/2/10 at 245pm, 6lb 2oz 20" long. No NICU as of yet thank Goodness, he does have the preemie grunt thing going on but he clears it.
Pre-E is not something thatI would even wish on my worst enemy, this was very rough and I want to say thank you to those of you who responded to my fear and helped me get through those last few days.

Best of luck! You are at a great place being at 36 weeks. Mag isn't always too fun so hopefully you arent on a high dose of it.

well back to labor n delivery. Hubby brought my acer 8" so I could have something to do, originally I was going to be admitted for observation then well then things went haywire and I am not on mag sulfate and insulin drips, My labor has been induced. and my BP is still 157/87. Looks like my little Aidyn will be here tonight.

My Dr came in and said he is relieved that I'm delivering, he's been really worried about me.

Will update when I am more comfortable.... probably a few days.
