I left for the hospital with a pounding headache and dizzy.
The BP before leaving home was 155/100...
I vomited a couple of times when I arrived in the hospital.
They checked my BP 40 minutes after I got there, took my blood and I had urine test. Then they monitored the baby.
Surprise, surprise... the BP was normal.
They took 2 more readings in the 4 hours I was there - both normal.
The blood test came back normal too.
But, there still considerable urine in the protein.
My feet, hands and face got puffier while I was there...
My headache and nausea remained bad...
Oh, and when I mentioned that I gained 2 kilos in 3 days, the doctor had to go and consult with her colleagues about what to do.
And they sent me home...
I asked how I am supposed to know when to call, if even with high BP at home, protein in the urine, bad headache, swelling, I might have just stayed home.
I was told: "Well, you just don't, but do call if there is something wrong"
Ugh! Things felt wrong while I was there, and still do!
I am dizzy, my head is pounding and the BP I took since I came home IS high again. And yes, my home BP up until today always matched the one in the hospital, so I don't get it.
Oh, and I drank a whole gallon of juice and water, and have only urinated a little bit - where is the water going?
They want me to get my BP measured and pee on a strip with their doctor on Friday. Nothing else. And THAT, I can do at home, so what is the point?
Honestly, I don't think anybody cares and I feel so stupid.
They probably think I am a hypochondriac, which makes not sense because the LAST thing I want is to give birth in a hospital! Why would I make it up, if doing so would risk me losing my homebirth?
Sorry for venting.
I just don't feel well at all, but I don't know what to do next.
And knowing that they probably will say "there is nothing wrong" anyway, makes me even less likely to call again...
