I'm admitted at the hospital

After having some bad headaches last night and today, Aunt Mary brought over my Grandpas blood pressure machine to check my blood pressure. It was sky high, so I called my OB. He suggested Tylenol, and to lay down for 30 minutes and recheck and call him. There was no change so I found myself back at the hospital.

They admitted me for Preeclampsia, and to monitor me and do some testing for at least 24 hours, maybe longer depending on how I do. The Dr made it very clear he thinks this baby is coming in the next 10 days, but he also said he hope he is wrong. I told him I refuse to left him come any earlier than 2 weeks and 4 weeks sound better. He agreed.

He set up for the neonatal Dr's to come talk to us tomorrow about the baby so hopefully they give me some hope and optimism. We will now be missing our BIG cardiologist appointment AGAIN, I'm convinced this baby doesn't want us to see his little heart.

I'm going to go get some rest before they come back in for vitals in 3 hours. Keep the prayers coming. Thanks you EVERYONE!
