Even after raising my blood pressure meds 2 weeks ago we still do not have control of the pre-eclampsia. My blood pressure was up again this week and my ankles and hands have even more fluids in them. My face is just slightly puffy. The OB decided to prescribe stronger pain meds to see if controlling my pain better would help my blood pressure since we can only go up once more on my blood pressure meds. We will see next week where I am. This means I will likely spend a couple weeks in the hospital if I hope to get to 35 weeks, which is my personal goal. I am 30 weeks tomorrow. 32 weeks is when the baby may need time in the NICU but will be okay long term. 35 weeks is when baby usually is home within less than a week after being born.
 
I am scared, but the baby is doing well. Unless this begins to affect the baby or becomes dangerous to me we will be playing the wait and see game for a few more weeks.

Oh no, I'm really sorry to hear this news - I don't blame you for being scared. I hope the doc can get things under control without you having to go into the hospital, but the most important thing is that you and Baby are safe. Hang in there. Will you be able to let us know if you do have to go into the hospital?
