Home from the hospital now. I had hope for a minute that I wasn't going to be sent home so fast. I was always told if my BP was consistently higher then 150Systolic or ever above 90 Diastolic that I was to come straight to labor and delivery. When I got there they hooked up the monitors to my my big belly and the blood pressure cuff to my arm. I kept getting readings over 90 diastolic and about 140 up to 156 systolic. I even had 4 contractions while I was there, one every 15 minutes. Never even felt anything. The nurse never even checked to see if my legs were purple or swollen. They monitored me for an hour said yes my BP is high and then brought in discharge papers. My regular OB is not working and a different Dr was on call. I plan to talk to my regular Dr tomorrow when he is back on and found out he is on call all weekend. (Sounds like a good weekend to have a baby.)
In the meantime I am on bed rest and to come back if i worsen. I am exhausted and have a headache off and on. I really really want to go into labor naturally but if my bp continues to be high then I am ready for Mr. to make his debut.
