I saw the high risk doctors today. The really nasty one who is head of the department was out sick. My blood pressure was borderline and I am spilling protein in my urine. So definately pre-eclampsia. I will have more tests Saturday.

Hi Redrose, I'm glad that doctor wasn't there. Your BP would be through the ceiling! Let us know about the tests on Sat. Hopefully you won't have to see that doctor for at least a month. How was the doctor they gave you?

He was the one who is rather neutral. There is another doctor who is really nice and you can tell he cares a lot about the patients. I have to see that office again in 4 weeks.

My blood sugar test was 149 but I barely held down the glucola. We aren't sure if I didn't drink gatoraid while half asleep the night before so we have no clue if I am actually gestational diabetic but we will be doing my blood sugar twice a day to see how things are going. If it is high I will need to take it 4 times a day and do a special diet. The really scary part is that the diatician expects me to eat 2500 calories a day.

I need some more rest but wanted to give a little more detail.

redrose, what is their plan for the pre eclampsia since that can be very dangerous. My sister in law developed pre eclampsia later in her her first pregnancy and they had to deliver the baby early. I'm keeping you and Baby in my thoughts and prayers.

The plan for now is VERY close monitoring- blood work and 24hr urine are being repeated. I am on blood pressure meds as well. It all depends on how I am doing each week. If I get a severe headache or notice a sudden increase in the swelling from fluid retention or feel really bad I am to immediately head to Labor and Delivery to be checked out. Beyond that they are hoping it will stay mild so I can continue the pregnancy as long as possible. We do not expect to go much beyong 36 weeks even before this happened but I am determined not to have the baby any earlier than I have to. I am 29 weeks and at 32 weeks the local NICU has a 98% rate of babies born at that point or later having absolutely NO long term issues from being early, though it does mean a 6-8 week hospital stay. I would really prefer to get to 34 weeks minimum because that is the earliest a baby's lungs are mature enough to handle being born without intervention.

Right now it is all a matter of taking it easy and playing the wait and see game. If I get worse I will be hospitalized but for now it is not at that point. Also, they are doing a CBC to make sure there isn't any infection because if I have a low grade infection that could cause pre-eclampsia that would be reversable. If my white cell count is even a tiny bit high I do have an infection and will need antibiotics. A couple of my medications lower white cell counts and we learned the hard way that even a tiny elivation means infection and if let go I get REALLY ill. I am actually hoping for an infection- something normally I would be hoping isn't the issue.
