So.. I am now lying here on bedrest trying to keep my blood pressure down under 150s/100s.... not fun! So far the dip sticks haven't shown any protien in my urine which is great but I also know it isn't difinitive. I am very ready for the baby to arrive, I hope it is sooner than later so I don't have to go get checked out by an OB... Just thought I would update. Wish me luck and a healthy delivery
So I had the midwife over today, she took blood and we are doing a 24 hour urine. So far the blood tests have all been normal
She checked me but couldn't reach the cervix
but as soon as she left i went to the bathroom to add to the collection of urine and i heard a rock like thing drop in the hat... I passed a kidney stone! I guess that was what had been causing my high blood pressure because now it is just about back to normal... this end of pregnancy has been a very strange one!
I am extremely relieved that I don't have to go to the hospital!
