Can I ask why they are suggesting you terminate? Were you in good health prior to becoming pregnant?

This was my first 24 hr... Apparently there have been + dips earlier so they did a 24 hr while I was in the hospital...

I also came home in IV solumedrol and compazine/benadryl....

I see MFM on Thursday.... Hopefully they do anatomy scan. I'm seeing Winnie Palmer but so far at every appointment they have pushed for termination and I WONT do that.!!!! Last visit on Monday she said, you only have to 24 weeks to terminate.

I'm tired of the pressure... :?

I've already reached out to Caryn, I did that the week I found out I was expecting........ Hi Caryn... :)
I'm so scared. I was NOT supposed to have another baby...
My body is too beat up... But Avery was obviously planned by someone bigger than me... I ovulated 4.5 days after intercourse and got pregnant for this peanut.

Welcome back and congratulations on your pregnancy. I'm sorry to hear you've already had some complications. Was a 24 hour done earlier in the pregnancy and it's rising? I will be keeping all crossables crossed that you have some smooth sailing weeks ahead of you- especially now that you have your meds.

Keep posted as you're able!

I'm hanging in there. It took two days for the hospital to call in my meds so by 1100 last night my head was throbbing.... Taking it easy today.

Pregnant again baby #5

Postby joy.kittrell » Thu Aug 13, 2015 01:47 pm

Hi everyone. I was a member here a few years ago... I had PE with my now 4yr old and then was watched closely with my 3yr old....

I am currently 17 weeks and 6days pregnant and just got out of hospital yesterday with an autoimmune disease flare. While there they did a 24 hr urine and told me I'm heading down the PE road with this pregnancy... And likely will be readmitted in a few weeks... I had protein at 185. I'm scared to go through PE again, me and my son were so sick from it...

:(
