I've been fighting my sinuses all week so I didn't think anything of the massive headache I got last night. Just before bedtime I figured I'd check my blood pressure just to see. It was a little high but I figured I'd get some sleep and see if it was better in the morning. Well I got up this morning and didn't think anything of it until I started getting a headache again. Checked my bp and the bottom number was 100 so I called the doc and they had me go in. It was 144/100 when I got there. He said he thinks it's just from the sinus problems but doing a work up for pre-e just in case. I pulled my bloodwork results up after I left the office and everything looks normal so far. Going to do the 24 hour urine Sunday. I managed to not cry in the office and told DH I needed retail therapy so we did a little baby shopping to help me relax. He's even cooking dinner for me. I'm really hoping it's just the sinus crud raising it, but I feel a lot better with the labs already done that at most it would be pregnancy induced hypertension which is at least better treatable. So ready for little miss to be here so I can stop worrying over everything.
I know your pain, this sucks so bad. Now every time my I get a headache I get this panic attack which makes my BP higher...endless cycle. I've been sick for 3 days and am trying to avoid the doc. Glad you get to do the 24 hour urine at home, since I started it at the hospital they had me stay to finish. Good luck.
Thanks ladies. I am now doubting it's from the sinus stuff. That stuff is getting better and the bp is staying high with constant headaches. I'm going to wait until I get the results from the 24 hr urine to call the doc again since there really isn't much we can do till then. Not gonna lie the constant stressing over what it's gonna be is not helping. I keep trying to think positive but my mind wanders. Sorry I'm still going on about this. Im just so worried about the what ifs now and don't want to be all down all the time with my family. Thanks for listening.
No, I'd be doing the same thing too, my little guy just has a kidney issue that shouldn't be a huge deal (but could be), and I still obsess about it and worry a lot.
I'm sure what's on your mind is preeclampsia, early delivery and a NICU stay. That's a lot to think about, a lot to worry about. Hopefully that's not the case, but I hope you can take comfort in the fact that you're as far along as you are, and if you did have your baby early, she wouldn't be one of those micro-preemies whose life is hanging in the balance. And, you might not have to worry about all that after all...I hope you get good results from your urine test! I'm sorry you have all this added worry.
