Preeclampsia

So it appears I have preeclampsia. BP has been going between 114/77 - 169/95. 377mg of protein in my 24hr urinalysis.
I haven't see a doctor about it yet. I will tomorrow. I'm 35wks.... what do u think they will do? Deliver me early? Keep me hospitalized till i deliver, or just send me home? I'm so curious as to whats going to happen....

Darkie!!!  :-(  That *****.  Is that a high amount of protein?  I'm just now learning about preeclampsia since i had a scare today...

Has your bp stabilized?  are they giving you anything to lower it or just monitoring you?

if your bp becomes dangerously high and it becomes a threat to the baby, they will deliver early by c section. the main thing they will do is put you on bedrest and see if they can get your bp down.
