I thought I should check in since things have changed or rather since they haven’t.
A quick recap: Last Thursday, I was admitted to the hospital at 32 weeks, with signs of moderate preeclampsia. Since then, we have been “about to induce” 3 times now and have been sent home once only to be readmitted the next day due to very high blood pressure.
The here and now: Now I’m pretty much captured here in my hospital bed until they decide to deliver. The doctors thought for sure, that we would have a baby by now but the numbers for my protien test came back at 275 instead of 300, so they are letting the baby “cook” at least until Monday’s results are back from the lab. By then they think it will be go time.
It’s been a very stressful week and a half because of all of the ups and downs. We’re of course, happy that we’ve been sitting in the hospital, bored and on magnesium sulfate (ok, I’m admittedly NOT happy about that part!), rather than scared and sitting in the NICU with a preemie! There is still a very high probability that Gavin will spend a little time in the NICU if he arrives Monday or Tuesday but nowhere near as much as if he had been taken out, last Thursday.
Thank you, everyone for your ongoing support and positive thoughts and of course for checking up on me.
