Not sure if I have mentioned this here or not, but I was diagnosed with PIH at 33 weeks, referred back to the perinatologist at 34 weeks. I saw my peri on Wednesday and it was mentioned if I would consider an amnio at 36 weeks to check for lung maturity. I am currently taking Procardia XL to manage my blood pressure, but it makes me feel so awful and I was told it is only a "temporary solution."
Long story short, I did agree to the amnio for Wednesday afternoon. Results will be back early 6/16. I have conflicting feelings about this. I had severe pre-eclampsia that went into eclampsia with DD1. I also had a lot of blood loss with her and was given blood and platelettes immediately after the birth. I know PIH is like a first step to pre-eclampsia, but I feel almost guilty for going ahead with the amnio. I know if her lungs are mature we'll probably c-section Thursday or Friday.
Am I making the right choice? My perinatologist is awesome and I don't think he'd mention this if it wasn't necessary, but I just keep doubting myself.
