My boss is gonna be pissed

I had my 34 week appointment today. My blood pressure was really high. 160/84. Its usually around 118 on the top number. Can't remember the bottom right now.

They also had to do stress tests and pre term labor tests. I have been getting really nasty headaches that they think are related to blood pressure. They are saying now its possible preeclampsia and I may have to stop working until I deliver. They told me they don't feel comfortable with me working tomorrow since the job entails lifting heavy stuff and its a high stress environment. So the doctor is writing a note.

My boss is gonna be pissed. And I can't say I feel bad. Lol.

 Did they do a protein dip?  With blood pressure that high I am surprised they didn't admit you overnight for observations.

They did one. There was some protein but not a high level. I'm doing a 24 hour urine test to keep checking those levels to see where they end up. They kept me for two hours and my blood pressure did get down to about 130/68. Still a little high for me, but not as bad. I have to check the pressures twice a day for a while.

Oh and they almost did send me to the hospital for overnigfht observation but since they got down they decided to send me home. If they do get high again, I'm to go straight to labor and delivery.
