Just a quick update. I had an ob appt today and baby looks good but my<br>
health is deteriorating. My bp is up to 145/96 and thats after doubling my<br>
dosage of medication and now I have protein in my urine. My headache won't<br>
go away and my left kidney is starting to hurt.<br>
I have dialated to almost 3, which is good and gives me higher hopes for a<br>
vaginal delivery!!!<br>
I go in tomorrow at 1, which is the baby's mom's birthday, so if he's not<br>
born tomorrow, he'll be born by Thursday.<br><br>
Smooth labor vibes and good thoughts would be greatly appreciated.<br><br>
Please no negative comments as my OB and midwife have decided that this is best for mine and baby's health.

That's exciting. Sending really good, happy, smooth labor and delivery, and healthy baby and surrogate mommy vibes your way! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
Who are you a surrogate for - a family member, friend? Just curious. I applaud you for helping someone in that way, that's really amazing.

Best of luck Chris! Pre-e is a scary problem, and I think it's wonderful that you have caregivers who are looking out for you and the baby. I wish you both the best of health and a lovely birthday.<br><br>
Will the baby's mom and dad be coming in for the birth?

Yep, they'll be there. Since the pree started, the Mom has been to all appts with me. They'll be picking me up and taking me to the hospital, while dh gets my oldest two kiddos from school.

Anyone who would say something bad about inducing for pre e is uneducated, in my mind! I hope all goes smoothly! Good luck to you!

Fingers crossed for a vaginal delivery. Glad to hear you're getting such active care. And I have to say that I'm both floored and in awe of the gift you're giving this other family. You are amazing!!
