Hospital visit

I'm in the hospital until Wednesday, possibly longer due to elevated blood pressure, liver enzymes and gall stones. The stones were a surprise as I do not suffer any ill effects because of them.

My liver enzymes are due to one of two diseases; either I have the beginning stages of pre eclampsia or Chlorestsis. Neither are good for the baby. As of now all monitoring indicates that the baby is fine.

They are giving me steroid injections in case I deliver early, which seems to be a real possibility with either of these diseases, whether by induction or not.

Noah and Richie are home which is hard. This is allbecauss I failed a non stress test. :-/

God is my refuge and in him I will trust. I know his plan is bigger than me. I will do d rest in that.

So sorry you will have to be there longer than you had first thought. Gall stones are really common during pregnancy, especially 2nd ones. Hoping you won't have the attacks like I did, those were, in a word, sucky. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh I remember al the horror stories from mommas here. :(
Today will rule out the preeclampsia, and by the end of the week we should know about the Chlorestsis. If neither are the cause then it will be the stones fault. Lol

The doctor told me today that IF it is preeclampsia we will have a baby in 2-3 weeks time. :)

yes, I do remember that liver enzymes can be elevated due to gall stones. At least that's something that won't hurt baby (and hopefully not you!!) Keep us posted on your test results!

I have preeclampsia. I will be here in the hospital until this baby is delivered, which may be as early as Thursday. I'm on a magnesium drip and possibly an insulin drop because sugars are just whacked out!!

The in-laws will be on their way in the morning driving from Arkansas. Mine will come later.

I'm so tired; I'm not sure what else to report. I'm just here and God is with me.

Hang in there, Ashley. This will all be worth it when you cuddle that little one in your arms!

I was, unfortunately, guessing you had preeclampsia. At least they caught it early. And thankfully you're, what, 34 weeks. You're so close... I am sure the little being will be fine. Take care of yourself as well. Hang in there. PTs for you.
