Greetings from Labor & F****** Delivery....

I'll give you the bullet version.


  • Maternity tour of new hospital went well last night. 
  • Went to new OB today and she was basically like "Ummm go home pack a bag and get to hospital."
  • Looks like I have pre-eclampsia. Blood pressure high, swelling, a lot of protein in urine...
  • They did u/s at OB. Baby looks okay, although there is too much amniotic fluid around her and she's still breech.
  • In l&d now. I've been poked and prodded more today than I have in my whole life I think. They are giving me steroid shots to strengthen her lungs. 
  • I have another u/s with MFM tomorrow morning.
  • Here overnight, possibly for a few days or possibly till baby comes. 
  • I'm starving, miserable and sad. 
  • Oh and did I tell you my husband is away for work right now? Yup.
  • They say I have an irritable uterus and have been having small contractions. Couldn't feel them at first but now I can. 
  • Not dialated.
  • Please pray.

Amber said...

You freaked me out!!!! I wish so much that I lived close enough to come hang out with you. I'm praying that things look better in the near future. So sorry about this.

Emily said...

Oh Sarah, I know exactly how you feel. I know how scary this position is. Take comfort in the fact that you are exactly where you need to be. Some women go a long time with pre-e and you can be one of them. Hang in there!

Samantha said...

Thinking about you and Samantha!

Good Timing said...

Yikes!! I think you just secretly love going to L and D don't you?! :p Kidding aside, I'm Soooooo sorry you have to go through more shit after everything you've already been through. It just isn't fair. :( I hope your hubby is able to come and keep you company soon and that Samantha stays put for awhile longer! Thinking of you my friend and sending lots of love and hugs from up North. xoxo

Kelly said...

Hope you are able to make it longer. My doctor was pretty lax about mine - didn't induce until 37 weeks when my BP got up to 195/118 - but others not so much. It's a tricky thing that pre-e! Take care and keep us posted!

Joys Truly said...

It's going to be OK - thank goodness you're getting the steroid shots! I'm sure this is very scary but thank goodness you're in good hands and where you need to be for them to monitor you closely. Good thing you switched docs so you could deliver at the NICU hospital! GREAT MOTHER'S INSTINCTS ALREADY!!!!

ADSchill said...

Oh dang! Why don't they give you more problems to take on!? I'm sorry hon. I hope things settle down and you can get out of there. I'm thinking of you and Sam.

Liz said...

Yet again...I can relate! I sat in L&D for a week...it sucks! Hang in there! Pre-E is ultimately what delivered my boys...it's tough, but everything will be just fine! Relax and enjoy being taken care of the best you can.

Bridget said...

I'm so sorry to hear this! I will be thinking of you and praying everything is ok!

Rebecca said...

Baby Hopes said...

Oh my goodness!!! I just read this and saw the last comment while sending my love and prayers your way. She's here?!?!?!? Sending lots and lots of prayers your way that you are all doing well. Watching eagerly for updates, but hoping you rest and take care of yourself and your sweet little girl as much as you can and need until we hear from you again. Much love to you -
