Bed rest at 32 weeks:(

I had the scariest Dr. appt. yesterday .I am 32 weeks today. Yesterday my BP was really high. The assistant wouldn't tell me at first. She took it again. It was 160/100! My Dr. immediately sent me to get blood work and then I had to go to the birthing unit to get monitored. I was a mess and crying because there was a chance I was going to have to have the baby that day and sent down to another hospital. Thank God my BP went down...It went to 107/68! Crazy difference. I am doing the 24 hr. urine collection today and now I am going to the Dr.'s A LOT more to get monitored. I am on bed rest as well. I can only get up to use bathroom/shower and get a drink/food. My Dr. really wants me to get to 34 weeks and hopefully 36 weeks....so scared! Anyone have a similar experience??

  • This happened to me. All my labs and everything came back normal excluding my blood pressure. I had to start nst twice weekly. About a week and half later my blood tests came back abnormal and was admitted for severe preeclampsia. They ended up inducin

  • I was put on bed rest at 27 weeks with my last pregnancy due to Pre-E.  It is scary but I did make it till 37 weeks before they induced me.  Just try to relax and it will go along way to bring you BP down.  

    Good luck Mamma! <
