i saw my midwife and have had a real scare! Im 33+4 today and every appointment prior to this one my BP has been perfect! So it was a shock when she told me it was high.... (123/98) anyways, they put me on a fetal heart rate monitor to monitor bubs movements and heart rate and also did some bloods and a urine test...
Apparently i have some protein in my urine aswell as the high BP which could mean pre eclampsia...
Im just so upset... They wanted to keep me in hospital overnight but luckily my BP had gone down a little! Its just my luck that this was the only appointment hubby wasn't able to come to! I was there for 2 hours and the poor thing was ringing me over and over thinking the worst!
I have to wait to hear from the dr this week to see if it is actually pre eclampsia but its just such a scary thing to be faced with when you think all is going well!
Im still at work at the moment and am thinking maybe its time i stopped - i don't want to make anything worse!
Can anyone give me some real life stories on what actually happens with pre eclampsia... i just don't know what to expect and i really don't like googling these things!
- will i be able to deliver naturally or will i have to have a cesarian?
- Will i have to be on bed rest??
- Should i stop work?
- Will bub be delivered early???
Sorry if this is all over the place... im a bit shocked at the moment!
