37 weeks.... ugh!

Mar 02, 2012 - 3 comments

The end is so close now, but so far away!  I had my appointment yesterday and baby is doing fine.  But between my swelling, slightly elevated blood pressure, and protein in urine, I'm not looking as good.  Dr. sent me in to do blood work and gave me a jug to collect my urine for 24 hrs (gross!).  Here in a couple of hours I am supposed to call for results.  

My Dr. suspects this may be the beginning of pre-eclampsia, and said she hopes that she can keep me pregnant for awhile.  She says for now I can work a shortened day at work and then spend the rest on the time on my left side.  If this doesn't manage it, then they'll have to induce.  Ugh!  I do not want to be induced or be sick.  

Best case scenario is baby comes soon on her own.  I was only 1 cm dilated and 20% effaced at my appointment yesterday... but a girl can hope, right!?  Trying to stay positive, but this is not how I envisioned things would go. :P

Praying baby and I stay safe!

Oh well, I hope you will be fine and will not develop a pre-eclampsia or even an eclampsia... Praying you and your little girl will stay safe. I wish your baby will come on her own and you will have a safe and easy delivery. Take care!
