Everything was going so well! Unfortunately a jump in my BP from 120/84 to 130/100 between visits results in my midwife wanting me to go to the hospital to get checked out.
I am asymptomatic besides the swollen feet and BP (i.e. no protein in urine or anything) but better safe than sorry I suppose - I'll keep ya'all posted though on what the OB at the hospital says.

So we just got home now, happily all my blood and pee tests were normal, GingerBean looks happy and healthy on the ultrasound, fluid levels are perfect, etc.
My blood pressure dropped to 145/97 - then to 130/79 - so that was good too! The OB wants me to pick up a BP Monitor and check my BP four times a day between tomorrow and next Wednesday then come see him at his clinic with the results. If they are within the normal range then I'll just continue to be monitored, but if the readings show a worrisome pattern then I may have to stop work and/or take medication to help keep it under control.
Omg! Well hopefully everything is fine and they will just keep an eye on it. I know with my last two my bp went up from around 123/74 to 140s/85 so hopefully its just because you are getting closer, not due to pre E!!! *hugs* wishing you good thoughts and prayers!!!
Sounds like you had quite the evening! These babes are already giving many of us a run for our money! Take care of yourself. I hope your BP stays under control and you are able to enjoy these final weeks as much as possible.
