Just a quick update. Last week I was admitted to L&D for higher BP readings and to monitor the baby due to an arrythmia. I ended up doing a 24 hour and came back with 200mg of protein ( doctor thinks I am headed in the PE direction). Since then I have been taking more Labatelol (went from 100mg once a day to 200mg twice daily). My BP has been stable at home and I am on modified bed rest until I have this baby girl. I had my doctors appointment today and made it home!!!!! They dipped my urine and I had negative protein!!!!! WOO HOO! So either I am staying the same or it has dropped. BP was high when I went in due to stress and nerves but came down to 110/70 which is beautiful! They did an NST and baby was good just stubborn so I was hooked up for 45 min. to get the correct readings. I think I just needed to eat because after having some juice she was fine. She still has the arrythmia but other than that she is great!

So I am 34+1 today and just praying to make it to 36-37 weeks. I would love to make it to my scheduled date of August 17th!!! So I go in to the MFM on Monday ( can't wait to see my little girl on the ultrasound and find out how she is growing!) Hoping for 5lbs! Then I go to the OB on Thursday again for another NST and checkup. This is so stressful! I just want to blink and make her here and happy and healthy!
