Unhappy Going to dr....scared

I called my dr. just a little while ago because my face has started to swell and I am having some blurry vision and they want me there IMMEDIATLY!....I've been so excessivly nervous today and I feel like my heart is going to beat out of my chest. I'm worried to death. Just wanted to jump on and ask for prayers to make sure all is well.

Thank you all!

I will say a little prayer for you. I'm sure all is fine, and if for some reason its a sign of Toxemia, you are far enough along that the baby will be just fine. Isn't 37 weeks considered full term?

I had a scare last week, and had to be put on bed rest. My face, hands and feet swelled up and my blood pressure was sky high. They made me do a 24 urine collection to check for Toxemia. Turns out I do have protein in my urine, but not enough for it to be considered Toxemia/Pre-Eclampsia.

Not trying to scare you at all...but I just want to let you know that I was there last week with the panic, and it turned out to be nothing. They put me on bed rest for a week, and now my blood pressure is normnal again. Atleast for right now. But either way, my Dr. told me if I was to go into labor right now they would do nothing to stop me. That was reassuring to know the baby is fully grown. Of course they don't WANT me to go pre-term, but its good to know the baby would be ok.

Good luck today, and keep us posted.

I hope you are ok Dingo, please let us know.

I just wanted to also add that my son was due Oct 6 and was born Aug 19, and he is a healthy, happy, BOTTOMLESS 13 year old now. You are way in the safe range already if you do go into labour, so try to relax and keep us posted!

Hi guys. Well I went to the dr...My blood pressure was up and I have to be back at the dr. office at 9:15am to do a non-stress test and make sure Trevor is okay. His heartrate was 140bpm today so that is good. I've been having blurry vision, headaches and I've been really sweaty and nervous. They seemed pretty concerned so I guess we are going to do some testing tomorrow.

Thanks for all of the prayers and I will be sure to keep you all up to date with everything that is happening.

9-19-03 EDD for Trevor
