We had a "growth ultrasound" this morning, which lasted much longer than I expected. The upshot, though, is that the baby is doing FINE (and has a full head of hair, according to the u/s tech
). He is not suffering any consequences of the pre-e.
That is a huge relief. DH and I had already talked about not inducing until and unless it is clear that he is in danger while in the womb. Knowing he is OK in there is all I needed to hear.
And to be clear, the mw wasn't pushing for induction. She talked to the most conservative on-call OB, told me so, and also said she didn't think any of the other OBs would have mentioned induction at this point.
I'm still not showing any symptoms - no increased swelling, vision changes, abdominal or shoulder pain, low back pain (other than that caused by lying down all day!), sudden weight gain...if it weren't for the labs, no one would know I was "sick."
I'm scheduled for twice-weekly NSTs and once-weekly AFIs, and I know pre-e can get dramatically worse overnight. But for now, I'm just taking it easy and trying to make it from appoinment to appointment.
back to all of you. Thank you so much for your support!
