So I went to my appt today and my blood pressure was really high so they sent me over to the hospital for blood tests and monitoring. The tests were all clear and the baby looked fine so they sent me home with blood pressure medication. Please send prayers/vibes that the medication will do the trick and there will be no issues with the pregnancy or the delivery, I'm freaking a little bit.
If anyone has some positive stories of this happening before I would appreciate it.

Happily married, crunchy mama crazy in love with our little man, Bam bam (10/5/10) due aug 2014 with our rainbow bean missing our 3 angel babies (9/09, 7/12, 12/12)

Hey there.

9 weeks of bedrest with DS, no meds. Healthy, term, spontaneous labor. He's a perfect 2.5-year-old and I returned to my baseline within weeks of delivery (I should note that I have chronic kidney disease and secondary chronic hypertension.)

This time, they put me on medication (I'm pretty sure mainly because 1- I'd had a healthy baby before and they weren't quite as concerned about masking preeclampsia in me - which I'm next to impossible to diagnose with! and 2- I have a toddler at home and how the heck was I going to do side-lying bedrest???). Anyway, it's been almost a month and things still look great. I expect a big, healthy, perfect baby in a few weeks!

Has your doctor discussed extra monitoring/tests for you and baby going forward?

B, happily married to M. Mother to two boys: B (3/08) and A (9/10)
