Well after my doctor appointment Tuesday and him being slightly worried about my BP, he asked me to call him if I started getting headaches or blurred vision. Yesterday on my way to pick up Mikey as I was pulling up at his school I suddenly started seeing spots and almost immediately started vomiting. It was awful, but I felt better almost instantly. I got home and thought about calling the office, but since it was after hours and I was feeling ok I figured I would wait for today. A few hours went by and I ended up getting these awful pains under my ribs, I actually started to cry they hurt so bad!!! Then just as quickly as they came on they left and again I was feeling fine.
So I went to work today, I planned to call my OB and just let him know what was up. A few haircuts in I just started to feel horrible. somewhat lightheaded, sick to my stomach... it was bad. I ordered some food because I figured I just needed to eat. I got a break and before I could start eating I started seeing the floaters and spots again and thought I was going to throw up! I ran to the bathroom and started vomiting again. I felt better after and went back and slowly tried to eat. I texted my husband and he told me to call my OB and tell him. Well of course they wanted to see me right away. I had 1 final haircut to do, so I told them I would be there as soon as I could.
I got over to the office and they took my BP it was 141/101. My OB came in, asked me what had happened and told me he was sending me for some monitoring at L&D. I was shocked I tell you. I thought he might tell me to take it easy or give me a prescription, but no.. he had his nurse walk me over there!
They hooked me up and my BP was 146/85 and it just continued to fluctuate while I was on the monitor.
They ran some blood work and said it was normal, but diagnosed me with mild preeclampsia. So far no official bed rest, they just told me to take it easy and go with how I feel at the moment. I go back to my OB on Tuesday, so we will follow up then and see what will happen from here on out.
So scary... I feel like its mostly just work stress, but of course I want to be careful!
I have joked this whole pregnancy how great everything has been.. how easy and smooth vs my constant sickness with my son. My pregnancy with him was horrible, but my delivery was awesome. I figured since this one has gone so smooth the labor with probably kill me... we'll see hahaha!
