BP girl - October 11

I am 34 weeks and am on my second week of bed rest. I was diagnosed with preeclampsia (toxemia). I went to see my dr. again on monday and she said my BP isn't going down like she had hoped. She is guessing that i most likely might have to be induced next week. This is my first child and I have all these feelings of worry right now. I am trying really hard not to, but it's hard. I can't go anywhere so I am stuck here at home being bored out of my mind. For me it's not the worry of when the contractions are going to start, it's the worry of the next BP check that says i need to get to the hospital. I would much rather have it the other way around. If there is anyone out there who wants to drop me a line, feel free. I could use a good story. BTW, I am having a boy.

A friend was on your same situation and she stayed in bed rest until last week (week 27) she was in bed for over a month. The baby was born through natural labor and it is perfectly fine at almost 7 lbs. :)

i know what you are going through on the bed rest part. i was put on bed rest at 28 weeks with my first child. i am now 37 weeks with my second child. i was put on bed rest with my first one because she tried to come at 28 weeks and it was horrable. i am sorry to hear that you are on bed rest i know it sucks. i go to the doctor today to see what day we are going to have my second little girl hopefully i will be induced on the 25 of this month. well good luck to you and i hope everything goes good with your little boy!!!!!
