We’re in the hospital for a 24 hr eval….

Today at my weekly doctor’s visit my blood pressure was a little too high, and I was 1 cm dilated. I have also been iron deficient for a couple of months, so they wanted the labor and delivery ward to check me out and run some bloodwork on me.

So they monitored me for 1 and 1/2 hrs – blood pressure remained kind of high but did go lower than when I was in the doctor’s office. The bloodwork came back and was showing abnormal protein levels and something about my liver not functioning like it should… (don’t ask – I have no idea)… I was also having very minor contractions, and since I’m considered full term, they decided with all that and results of the test they want to keep me over 24 hrs for observation – which started at 3:15 this afternoon.

We are in a birthing suite as Southeast Alabama Medical Center until my 24 hrs is up tomorrow afternoon. They are checking my blood pressure and vitals every 4 hrs and are doing a 24 hr urine collection so they can do an analysis tomorrow.

My last blood pressure reading was within the normal range which is good news. And unfortunately not much going on in the contraction department right now…

So we just have to wait until around 3p tomorrow to see what’s going on … unless somehow i really go into labor and have Hailey soon 🙂

But we’re doing good – Josh is staying the night with me… we’ll keep everyone updated thanks to Facebook. 🙂
