Thisclose to induction at hospital today ...

Well, I'm officially a pregnant woman with Pre-E today :-/ .... my third 24-hour urine sample came back with a protein level of 1,333! Big jump from 400 a couple weeks ago. My BP is still borderline-bad, with my first reading at the OB office around 140/95. But, with a little rest I am able to get my subsequent readings down to the 120s/70s.

At first my OB sent me to the hospital with plans to start induction tonight, but after monitoring me at the hospital for 4 hours, my BP was good, all fetal movements perfect, and bloodwork came back great... so as long as I keep resting without elevating my BP, the only problematic symptom is the protein. I convinced my OB that I would strictly bedrest at home and now they plan to have me come in for another check-up on Saturday. I really hope to go into labor on my own and deliver when the baby and my body are ready... (as long as LO stays head-down like she's been for 3 days now) Hoping for the best!

  • Good luck! I hope it all goes well but on the plus side at least you are full term already!

  • Wow! That protein is high! I'm glad you convinced your OB to let you go home! I'm stuck in the hospital :(  I'm hoping to make it to full term! GL to you and hope you can keep that LO in as long as you can (although, 37 weeks is great!)

  • Good luck to you. I have another check up today to decide what to do regarding potential pre-e and induction. No protein in my urine but I have borderline high BP, excessive swelling and migraine-like headaches with nausea. I really want to be induced because I am so terrified. That's a relief that we are both far enough along that our LO's will be ok. Keep us updated!
