Hang in there! I hate that you have to deal with this stress (we are stressed enough as it is!!).

I hope your 24 hours comes back fine- keep us posted.

After resting BP is 133/94, so not wonderful but much better. I gave the nurse all my BP readings and I'm continuing to keep track.

In your shoes I would call in that bp - 106 is really high and your doctors may want to see you before Friday.

I can imagine how hard this must be for you. I hope that your doctors have a plan to help you get as far as possible. We have had ladies make it a long time with medication and rest.

Take care.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I got the blood work done and have started my 24 hour urine collection which I will take to the hospital tomorrow afternoon. I just checked my BP and it was 147/106. I'm going to rest and take it again. I have an appointment on Friday and all my results should be back by then so I'm hoping for the best.

That same thing just happened to me last week. My bp was up. So they admitted me to the hospital for 3 days to monitor me and the baby. They did a 24 hour urine and bloodwork. Everything came out fine. Now I am on bedrest at home until I deliver. Blood pressure is good since I have been on bed rest. No PE nor HELLP lurking at this time. They are going to see me two more times this week and four times next week. I am so blessed that they are being so proactive. I do not fool around and I let them know every sign and symptom. My husband checks my bp twice a day. That is good that they are being proactive with you and doing the 24 hour urine. Are they going to do blood work? Something could show up in you blood work that may not show up in you 24 hour urine. They do my blood work about once a week. Please get the blood work done. Bless you and I am keeping you in my thoughts.

I'm so sorry your bps are rising - hopefully it's nothing to do with PE. I'm thinking of you very much.

I am so sorry to hear that you are going through this right now. I am hoping that it is nothing too concerning and keeping you in my prayers.
