My BP at the high-risk OB today was 174/87!
My regular OB admitted me on the spot. They
gave me a steroid shot at 3 pm and I get 1 more
at 3 tomorrow. I'm being observed tonight and if
everything is ok, I might be able to go home
My night nurse is the bomb! She snuck me a
The doctor on call is the one from my OB group
who saw me yesterday. He is on a 48 hour rotation!
Don't get me wrong, I like him a lot, but he wants
to keep me here on bed rest. I hope I can convince
him that I'm well enough to go home today!
Also, he ordered a gestational diabetes diet for me!
I don't have GD! I guess that he figures that it won't
hurt me... I can't wait to get out of here and go eat
some buffalo wings. This hospital food is for the birds!
It's good that you get to go ome. Praying your bp stays down until its time or the babies. Are you on dietary restrictions? Knowing you are going to be delivering at a good hospital has got to be a relief. KUP
My doctor told me to pretty much eat what I wanted, but restrict my sodium. He said that I was able to get up and walk around my house, but not to do any heavy duty housework or do lots of errands/shopping, etc.
I did get out of the house twice today. My husband took me out for lunch and I got a grilled chicken sandwich. Then, my Mom took me to the grocery store on the condition that I drove the mart cart. I hate the cart! I can't reach anything in the store, LOL!!!
