I pulled off my socks and ended up at the hospital.
My blood pressure was 166/94, there was protein in my urine, and of course, there were my feet. The doctor looked at them and made a face I wish I could reproduce here for you. She said I needed to go to Labor & Delivery right away so off I went.
As soon as I went in, there was that hospital smell and it instantly made me feel sick and nervous. It was okay, though. They put me in a room and hooked me up to some monitors to watch the baby and take my blood pressure over and over. I also had to have a blood draw (wah!) and it wasn't as lucky as the last time. This time I got three sticks before the evil woman got a vein... including one in each hand, which really hurt!
My blood came back okay, so my liver is functioning (always good news). But my BP didn't go down enough and I still had tainted pee. They sent me home with a jug to pee in for 24 hours and I have to go back to the hospital tomorrow for more monitoring. It sounds likely that I'll end up on bedrest, which is better than the alternative: a very early delivery. Hopefully that won't have to happen, but she did say it could.
I guess I'm going to put my elephant feet up and go to bed.
