Ugh. Had my 34 wk appt today. Had a non stress test and my blood pressure wouldn't go down :( also had protein in my urine. Dr mentioned possible pre eclampsia, possible bed rest and possible early baby :( this is my last preg and it has by far been the worst. I already have gestational diabetes too..so these next 3-6 weeks need to hurry. Bed rest isn't an option w a 3 and 5 yr old at home :( so disappointed after this appt. I go 2x a week now til the end :( my appt wed is for a growth ultrasound

I got pre-eclampsia with my first at 34 weeks. I went from once every 2 weeks to 2 times a week and finally to everyday until I was induced at 36 and some days. I was on bed rest but it was pretty much impossible to stay.
Good luck.

Same happened to me at 34 weeks, at 35 + 2 my placenta started to shut down. I had my son that day. I FREAKED OUT but eventually realized this was the best thing for the baby. He also weighed 8 lbs at birth at 35 weeks, so that was good. NICU for a week to help his breathing and we were out of there! Good luck no matter what happens!

Thanks mommas. I am hoping for 3 more weeks then he won't have to stay and I won't be induced since I had 2 csecs. Was trying for a vbac this last go around but it's not looking possible w all these issues

They're doing the blood work tomorrow and I had to do a 24 hr urine collection.All signs are pointing to preeclampsia though :(

I had it pretty bad with my son at 28 weeks.  Hoping you don't have it!

Had the growth ultrasound today. He has moved to head down since my appt monday. He is measuring 5.12 lbs they said 76% so a Lil chunky but looked good otherwise :) now just waiting to see the OB and still waiting on the preeclampsia results.
