I went for my NST and appointment on Tuesday and ended up being admitted. The nurse said that my NST was "almost reactive 3 times" but doc said it was all fine. My doc was concerned about preE. My BPs have been slightly high but not extreme like they were with my dd, I haven't had extreme swelling like I did with her either. I will admit that around my eyes was swollen, like I had been crying but I hadn't. That was strange. Anyhow, he admitted me for dehydration and 24 hour urine ( more or less for observation, I think). The protein in my urine came back high and they decided that they wanted another one and wanted me to stay ANOTHER night. Then around 8 pm (Thursday) my doc came in and said that I could stop the 24 hour urine and go home! He has me on bed rest and I have to follow up with him on Monday. My BP's have been in the 140-150's over 90s range since I came home Not really bad but not good either, higher than they were while I was in the hospital. I'm taking a bag in case they keep me Monday. I'm trying to tell myself if I take the bag I won't need it! Found out on the last day there that my potassium was 2.8 and that potassium IVFs really burn your vein up! Glad that I didn't get that until the end and the second bag was cut short d/t discharge. I was counting how many IV bags they hung on me (yes, I was bored) and I had a total of 7 lactated ringers and one normal saline with potassium and part of another . . . should not be dehydrated anymore!!! Baby is good . . . he sure loves to run from the nurses though, 20 minute NSTs always took way longer!
My C-section is already scheduled for the 22, just hoping I don't have to stay in the hospital any time between now and then.
Kind of had my feelings hurt because my mom said " are you going to get your tubes tied this time, so you don't have to deal with this again?" I did have pre E with my dd and had to stay in the hospital for a while before I had her . . . I know my mom is worried about me and baby, but we struggled with infertility for years before this pregnancy, so that remark stung.
