first timer here. 35 w as of monday. had to crack the whip on husband to finish the nursery-still not completed but a lot closer than it was one week ago.
had my 35 w appt today but had to go in yesterday due to symptoms of preeclampsia. bp was 167/105, have headaches, nausea/vomiting, massive swelling of "cankles" that do not go down, but feet will go down some. and did i mention an 18 lbs weight gain over a 13 day period? before this had only gained 9 lbs the whole pregnancy (starting out overweight). doc told me to come on it, checked my bp, was slightly lower, checked swelling and urine, sent me to hospital for fetal monitoring and labs, recheck urine and bp. 2 hours later, hospital said everything looks fine and sends me home. they said watch your sodium intake. bp still high, still have headaches and massive cankles and getting down right cranky.
oh yea lets not forget that i am 35 w and measuring 41 weeks and do not have gd!!!!
my doctor has not checked my cervix or anything so i have no idea how things are going to go but i am so miserable and want to decrease all these lbs of fluids and get a better idea of whats going on with my cervix and massive baby!!! my doctor is good but doesnt believe in doing sonograms other than your first one and the 18 week one unless something is wrong so i have no idea how much this baby weighs or anything! should i take a nb going home outfit, a 0-3 months, a footed sleep or a onsey?
