I had my 35 week appointment today... actually I have had weekly appointments for the past month. About a month ago I had a isolated high blood pressure. Since then I have had weekly appointments with weekly 24 hr. urine collections. The Dr. I saw at the base today said he thinks I have mild preeclampsia. I have had to do three 24 hr urines and my levels have all been >300 (405,450,380). So I have another appointment next week. They don't seem to be to worried about the baby as I have had no high blood pressure since that single one a few weeks ago. They said the proteinurea won't hurt Camden and that my fundus is measuring on track so they aren't worried about IUGR. Other than that and being very sore I am doing great. Almost done with fall semester... phew!
Congrats to all the ladies that have had babies! I have tried to respond to as many as I have been able to. Your babies are all gorgeous!
Pediatric nursing class is taking a lot of my time right now, so I haven't been around much. December 8th is my pediatric final exam so I should have some time after that!!
I hope you don't develop pre-e! I sort of have the opposite problem, I've been getting elevated blood pressures but no proteinurea, I know how stressful it can be. You must be so happy to be almost done with fall semester! Good luck on your final!
Hello fellow nursing student momma! Hope you B/P and proteinurea stay under control so you can keep your little one in until your class is done. Do you have clinicals right now too, or just class? My last day of class is December 4. I can't wait! I have one more paper to write and 16 more hours to work with my preceptor and then I am done! Good luck!

You sound like me, cutting it a bit too close with school. My classes end the first I am glad things are going well, and you're almost ready for a break from school. After baby comes how much longer are you taking?

I have one community/ public health nursing clinical day left. Besides that just classes!! You must be getting so excited to be almost done! You graduate in December correct? I have to go back to school January 4th for one last semester and will graduate in May. I am hoping Camden makes his grand appearance the days after my peds final. (December 9th) so that I will have a little time off before heading back to school. Wishful thinking I'm sure
I only had to do one 24 hour urine collection and it was annoying, so I can imagine what doing them weekly must be like. But at least you're okay and so is Camden. I love the name, BTW![/b]
Thank you so much for the name compliment

I am cutting it quite close, but my due date probably couldn't have worked out any better. One month before or after and I would have been in trouble school wise I go back to school the 4th of January so if I'm lucky I will have two weeks with my baby before heading back But I keep telling myself I'm only in school until May and then I can take some time with him after that while I wait to take my nursing boards!
