In the hospital because of signs of preeclampsia.

So I went to my doctors appointment and when they tested my urine..lots and lots of protein. They then tested my blood pressure…high. They looked at my feet..swollen. So they sent me right over to L&D to get more tests and decided to admit me for a 24 hour urine test and to monitor me more closely because I have signs of “mild” preeclampsia. Of course I cried and cried in the doctors office. My husband was out of town about an hour away and my mom was working..and I didn’t want to call anyone else. Thankfully my mom works at the hospital (ER section) and was able to stay with me in the hospital until hubby could get here. They’re both the best. My bloodwork results were somewhat iffy as well. So monitor away they shall do. I just don’t feel ready yet!!

Babies are doing well, heartbeats are great. Thank the Lord!! If things improve with my blood pressure and urine tests they will send me home tomorrow evening, but the doctor made it clear – babies are coming out sooner than later. They gave me steroid shots for babies to develop lungs more but at 34 weeks with twins they say I’m in a good place. I also have an NST scheduled for later tonight.

I feel so overwhelmed because it was so unexpected. What’s funny is I was telling my husband last night (I feel weird) and this morning (babe, make sure you keep looking at your phone just in case)…but I’m still bummed to be here. Still haven’t told anyone since I won’t have any definitive answers until late tomorrow afternoon. Please pray for me and my little boys..that everything would go smoothly and that they will bake longer so they can continue to develop and grow! My priority – my boys! I will keep updating.

    I’m pray, pray, praying for you and your family. I wouldn’t be ready yet either! Try to stay calm, let everyone take care of you, and keep those boys in there as long as they’ll let you! I’ll be thinking of you!
