For any of you that have been on here a while, or even a short time (since I am on here all the time...) you may know that I have been fighting off pre-e, successfully thus far with with almost 11 weeks of bed rest.... but today pre-e has officially caught up to me. I was in L&D on Mon cause my doc did not like my BP and I had 1+ in the dip. But on Monday blood work checked out fine.... Yesterday I started a 24 hr UA and felt "off" last night. I had an NST scheduled first thing this morning, otherwise I probably would have showed up at L&D about 4am. Lauren, my baby, looked great in the NST but the dr was worried about my BPs and headaches. She put me in triage to get my bloodwork results and 24 hr back. Came back as pre-e. Protein was only 384mg, which is soooo mild. But my platelets dropped a good bit from Mon to Thurs. She said it is mild pre e now but given how fast I went south with Ethan, she wanted to keep a watch. I got my first steroid shot today and will get another tomorrow. If I follow the same course as with Ethan, I will be here till I have a baby - but she said the biggest difference is we caught it early... last time when I crossed over into pre-e, it was already severe. So I am holding out hope. Dr said we will have a baby at 37 weeks, if we can get there. She would not push me a day over that. That is 4 weeks from yesterday... I feel doubtful that I will get there but who knows!! I know some would be devastated to have a 34-35 weeker, but I am okay with that.... I am proud of Lauren and I for making it this far... I am proud of Ethan and my hubs for holding down the fort with almost 11 weeks of bed rest so far.... Anyway, wanted to give you guys an update and ask for thoughts and prayers.
