So I'm here on L&D and can't sleep. I was admitted yesterday for spotty vision and bp 199/102. The are monitoring me overnight. Right now, the plan is to induce me if it stays above the 160 mark. If it goes down (have had a couple now) below 160s, I'll be sent home on BR with a goal of 37 weeks. I'm 34w3d today. Just need a little support from my bumpie friends! I'm not quite ready to meet little Lucas.
***update 10/29/30*** Well the bp did not behave and they had to move forward with induction. They placed cervadil at 10am and let it sit for 12 hours. This involved some pressure and cramping but nothing horrible. When the took the cervadil out I was only 1cm and 80% so they are giving my cytotec by mouth every three hours. They also inserted a foley balloon into my cervix (same catheter they use for a urinary catheter) they put 50cc into the balloon and are letting it sit. The idea is that the balloon will help the cervix release it's own prostaglandin to dilate the cervix faster. Once I'm to 5 cm, they will start pitocin. Dr. Says Lucas will most likely need a couple weeks in NICU once he arrives. Immediate skin-to-skin is probably out and that they will probably need to use a bottle or paci while he is in NICU. I'm feeling so heartbroken about having him whisked away so quickly and everything else. DH is doing good but is struggling with this too. Keep praying for us!! Love you ladies!
