    Unhappy In and out of the hospital still.

    Kayla is doing good. I however still have pre-e. It is rare that is does not go away after birth. But still very serious. They are worried about bleeds in my brain and seizures. I just got back out of the hospital after going back in for magnesium treatment. It was horrible but took my bp down while on it. But after it creeped back up. SO they have me on little stimulation, dark, quiet room and it came back down with medication. Anytime I walk around or get too much excitement or stress it goes back up. They have adjusted my medication and sent me back home for now. I am on strict bed rest for 2 weeks. But they are going to reasses things tomorrow when I go back in for a check. FX things go well. I am sick of being sick. Also this is pretty scary since 76,000 people a year die of this so called rare occurrence.

    I'm so sorry you are going through this. It can sometimes take a little longer for BP to go down after pre-e for some mommies. Although I went home a day after DD was born, I could only go if I agreed to monitor my BP by taking it every three hours and logging it for 2 weeks after I was sent home. It stayed high for a while if I remember correctly. They had me taking water pills when I went home, too - not fun. Praying your BP stays low enough for you to be home with baby!

    How high did yours stay? Mine is usually 140s/90s-100s (lows) 150s/100s (highs) We are going soon to find out if this new medication is going to help. FX that they don't readmit me after my appointment.

    I was thinking about my last hospital visit. When I go there they padded the bed and asked if I wanted a priest or paster. Why would they do that? The only thing I could figure is that it was way more serious then anyone let on. They have never asked me that before.

    Oh sheesh, that sounds horrible to be asked if you want a religious figure upon being admitted to the hospital.

    How is Ms. Kayla doing??

    I agree asking for a religious figure is a bit odd. I'm praying for you, it can't be fun going through this :/ How is your little girl doing?

    Who was Mariah's DD buddy? Can you text her?

    Glad to see you update! And yay to lower BP! Hope milk supply gets better. Is it that you don't produce enough? Anything we can do to help (some mamas here have breastfed for a while!)?
    How's Kayla doing?
