Got a call from the nurse this morning that my Monday-Tuesday 24 hour protein in urine was "quite elevated" and she wanted me to come in today. So I went in, BP was still hovering at 140/90-ish, I'd actually lost some water weight, and overall everything was okay, EXCEPT that my protein in urine was 1200mg (300 is considered mildly pre-E).

I'm being admitted tonight for cervadil, then we'll do a foley and a few mics of pit. I'm hoping to have a baby by tomorrow afternoon at the latest, I guess.

Nothing is done. I think I thought if I didn't get her stuff together, this wouldn't happen to me again. I have a friend helping me clean up and pack and since we don't have a crib yet, DH is picking up a pack-n-play with a bassinet.

See you on the other side!

Ohh Charlotte a big hug for you! Even though this is not what you had planned you will be joining the other side soon! All you really need is your body to birth, your milk to feed and a carseat to bring the baby home in.

Headed to drop the kids off, get some dinner, and go to the hospital now. I'm hoping for as much success with this one as I had with my last induction...maybe even more (like if the cervadil would send me into labor, that'd be great!). I hope to update sometime tomorrow.

Thanks for the good vibes. I've spent a lot of time hoping this wouldn't happen this time, but being prepared for the possibility (which I wasn't last time), so I feel pretty okay. Not how I'd wanted, but I'll have my little girl soon...
