The trials and tribulations of our journey to make a baby.

I would die for that.

Not out of the woods yet.

I spent Monday night in the ER, away from my baby, with super high blood pressures. They were talking about keeping me over night since I could have a stroke.. But, they got my pressure down, sent me home. By the next morning it was even higher. So the doctor started me on procardia, 30 mg, once a day. It worked last night but, this morning it was back up, way up, again. So, now I am taking 60 mg a day. I am so so scared. I just keeping thinking that I will die and leave my baby without a Mother. Please pray that this dosage is what it takes to get me better. I feel so sick and I am back on strict bedrest. I don't even know how to handle all this. Thank God that Stephen gets two weeks paternity leave. I don't know what I would do without him. My MIL is coming this weekend from TN and I am so glad. We have a bunch of out of town guests coming and she can do all the cooking and cleaning and entertaining while I rest on the couch or in bed.

But, seriously, I really need some prayers. The doctors are taking this very seriously. All I want to do is feel good and enjoy my sweet baby without wondering if each headache is the one that will give me a stroke.

Tricia, that is so frightening! Thank goodness your doctors are taking it seriously and that you're under close watch.

I will be thinking about you and hope that the bedrest helps.

Take care of yourself, Momma.

High blood pressure can be very scary. I had pre-e with my first, and it took a while for the bp to balance itself back out. A good friend of mine had very high bp after she delivered her daughter.
Just be aware of what is going on with it. Contact your dr. when you are concerned. Sometimes it just takes a while to find the right dosage.
I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers! I hope everything gets better for you.

Praying for you.

I had high BP after giving birth as well. Finding the right drug combo was key and all was well. I hope that yours gets under control soon.
