I saw the OB this past Tuesday and my 24 hour urine (from the Tuesday before) showed I was pre-eclamptic. I did another on Saturday and the lab did not run the correct test, or the doc ordered the wrong test (I think it was the latter) but either way there was no protein count from the urine sample that I turned in on Saturday. Long story short, the OB gave me the option of inducing the next day, or repeating the urine and labs and going from there. I choose to repeat the labs and the OB was supportive since all of my blood work had looked really good the firs time, and since my bp was looking good.

Yesterday I saw the OB to get the results of my lab work and 24 hour urine. I had been on complete bedrest, aside from attending Thanksgiving dinner at my uncle's. I was monitoring my BP at home and it was looking really good. I had an NST Friday morning and it was good. I was still only 50% sure that I would be coming home from that appointment instead of going to the hospital. I even finally packed my bag! I was thrilled when the OB walked in and asked how I was feeling, then told me that the most important thing was that I am feeling good and as long as that is the case I will be making it to my Dec 1st induction date! The 24 hour urine looked way better and my pre-e labs were still looking good. He checked me and did not tell me anything other than "Woah, he is way up there!" so I am pretty sure that I am still just 1cm. I am still on bed rest and I need to pay close attention to how I am feeling, but it looks like I will make it to 39 weeks! I am so excited!!

Thanks Beth! I am really excited too. After having issues with my fluid, then pre-e I did not think I would be making it to the 1st but I am so happy that I will be!

It was a long ordeal, but in the end it was the birth I wanted. I just posted the birth story.
