Sorry to hear that the PE is back...but so glad to hear you're at 35 weeks. I hope all goes very well in the next few days for you.

Denise,
Sorry to hear that PE has reared its ugly head yet again, but I'm thrilled that you've made it to 35 weeks! I know you know this, but please don't hesitate to go directly to L&D if your pressures get any higher. Keep us updated. I expect to hear baby news very soon!!!

Hey Denise,
Congrats on making it as far as you have, sounds like the baby is doing great! That is awesome, but sounds like you may not be doing as well. I am no expert but to me, those pressures sound HIGH!! I always wait to call the doc and tough everything out and it sounds like you are too, but having the baby sooner than later may be just what you need to do to protect your own health. After my first experience I swear this time (I am now 19 wks) I will be much more aggressive...I think you should too. I say that only because things can turn so fast. Maybe I sound like an alarmist, I certainly don't mean to, I just worry about woman going through such hard and scary deliveries.....please keep posting and I will keep you in my prayers.

Glad to hear baby is moving and that you're keeping close watch on that BP. Try and lie down on your left side as much as possible.

Good luck.

I retook my bp not long ago and it was 158/99 so it is down. If it's over 100 again tonight I still have orders to go to L&D. I am trying to just get through the weekend until my appt monday morning on the other hand I have no problem going in if necessary. The baby is moving around a lot and kick counts take no time.

Denise,

I would strongly urger you to phone in or just go in - a diastolic of 112 is extremely concerning, particularly after rest. Can you take it again and see if it's come down at all?

I'm a chronic high pressure gal and my Dr didn't want my diastolic over 106.

Denise,
Sorry to hear about the PE. Sounds like your doctors are staying on top of things...praying for a good outcome and healthy baby for you. 35 weeks is a good place to be and it sounds like he's a good size - 6 pounds does seem big! Will keep my fingers crossed for you and baby.

Those bp readings from last night and this morning seem very high. I think it would be a good idea to call the doctor or just go into L&D today. Maybe not wait until tonight if they are high. At the least it couldn't hurt to put in a call to them and see what they say.

I'm glad your mom is there to help with the kids.

Hang in there, Denise. Glad your mom is able to help -- that's invaluable. Not long now! And call or go in to L&D if things get worse. Never feel bad or guilty about that.
