So It Goes

My blood pressure hit 150/98, I had a bad headache, and my swelling was not improving. I called my doctor and am now in the hospital. The good news is that the baby looks good on ultrasound. I got new blood pressure medicine and my pressure has responded nicely. The bad news is that my head is still killing me and I have hyperreflexia. These can indicate cerebral edema. I am in the process of doing a 24 hour urine collection to see how my kidneys are holding up. I am terrified! I keep hearing babies being delivered and crying that sweet first cry and keep wondering if we will make it far enough to hear that. I am trying to stay upbeat but I am so scared!

  1. Thinking of you! Lets hope that new bp meds bring your bp down and your headache goes away soon! Can they do a CT to rule out cerebral swelling?

  2. Oh no, this isn't what I wanted to read. =0( I'll be thinking & praying for you...
