Hello ladies, I have been mia for a bit but wanted to update. Isabelle is scheduled to be here Tuesday via c-section, but the last couple weeks my bp has been creeping and lots of swelling with protein in my urine. I had my 38 week appointment yesterday and my bp was even higher than last week, wasn't alarmingly high but it had went up by 10 points and was higher than they like, more swelling, and so on. Now we are doing the 24 hour urine test and depending on those results we may be having her between tonight and Saturday. I know it's only a few days before the c-section but I would be feel better if we got to 39 weeks like we had planned. I hope the levels are not bad enough to move up the date, in the end a healthy baby is what matters and my ob explained pre-e can go from mild to severe very quickly and risking a few days isn't something she would do. I know all to well how pre-e works as I had it with my first and it was very severe, luckily it was caught early this time. I will update when I know the results and what the plan is.
It's great to hear from you, I had been wondering how you were doing. I hope that your LO is able to stay in there until Tuesday but if the results say that she needs to come out earlier then I am glad that they caught it early. Keep us posted!
