Post Dr. Appointment Update

My blood pressure is up and they want me to come back in tomorrow and do a non-stress test to make sure Trevor is okay. His heartrate was 140bpm today..that is good.
I've been having some headaches, blurry vision, swelling in my face, feet and hands and I've been really nervous, shaky and sweaty. I did not have any protein in my urine which is good.
The dr. said that he wanted to check my blood pressure in the morning and see if it was still up before he made a snap decision to deliver.

Hope you all are well. Keep us in your prayers..

9-19-03 Expected B-day for Trevor!

I'm sure everything will go good tommorow!! If anything, maybe Trevor will be able to make his grand entrance sooner!!! That'd be exciting. Let us know how it goes though!!! Hope everything goes just as planned!!

Best of luck at your appointment tomorrow. Just remember that if Trevor needs to make his grand entrance a little early - He is good and ready!

I have an appt. tomorrow too and I'm scared to death. I'm showing signs of pre-eclampsia, and I was put on bed rest last week. I've had swelling, high blood pressure, and some protein in my urine (but not enough to be considered pre-eclampsia - yet). I am a few weeks behind you, so I'm hoping my little one will stay put for a few more weeks.

Good luck today, and let us know hwo you make out with your stress test.

April, Please let us know how your appt goes today, our thoughts and prayers will be with you. If little Trevor does need to come a bit early he'll be ready and all will be fine.

Sending good vibes for lower blood pressure.

Heaven-sent - wishing you good luck at your dr's appt today too. Praying all is well and your little one can stay put for a few more weeks!!!
