High BP again...

Updated to add: I checked my lab results online last night and they came back clean! I will be talking with the midwife this afternoon to find out next steps (most likely partial/most bed rest again)-but thankfully I don't think we'll be discussing immediately plans for a c-section or early induction! Thank you for all your kind words and prayers! Hopefully it won't even be a consideration because I will go into labor soon;)

My apt at the midwife did not go well today. I had a BP of 136/88- so they started the red flags for possible pre-eclampsia/PIH again. Please pray that the blood/urine tests will come back clean tomorrow! I am not sure what will happen next if they do not, other than likely discussions of how to get the baby out asap.

I was thankful that a friend from church, Sue, was there with M during the ordeal and she took us out to dinner afterward and listened to me cry:) The midwife and nurse also got some tears-but after all is said and done God is sovereign in whatever ends up happening.

Besides praying that the tests come back clean please in all seriousness pray for baby to come soon! The sooner she comes the more likely my BP will not get higher and that she will be able to make her way naturally. Plus we want to meet her! Thank you!!

I will be praying everything works out for the best! It is all in God's capable hands.

Thanks for keeping us updated! I was sure you would have gone into labor by now!

I've had an induction for preeclampsia before. I hope all goes well!

I have a BP cuff I bought at the drugstore and test my BP throughout the day, and they let me stay home as long as it's under their levels.

Hang in there - just a little longer!
