I know it is hard from experience, but try no to worry. I had PIH with my first pregnancy and I am 21 weeks pregnant with my second. As long as they keep a close eye on you everything will be fine. Have they put you on bedrest yet? If they haven't just be prepared for the possibility, especially if it escalates. Good luck, I know it is hard I am also worried with this second pregnancy I will have the same problems........................

Last week, at 32 weeks, I was admited into the hospital for close observation because of this same problem. And was also told that they would have to deliver the baby in two weeks. After five days of hospital, they released me to go home under very strict bedrest with bathroom privileges only ... and was told that they would take the baby within 2-4 weeks (most probably 3 weeks) ... this is a serious conidition to monitor as it can escalate rapidly into preclampsia, and I am curious as to why your doc seems so casual about it. My doctor took the signs very seriously, and conservatively ... do you also have headaches? Hyperreflexia? These are things that need to be looked into, bea.
