Slight Glitch

Well, we had our standard baby check-up today. Unfortunately this time there was a slight problem. My blood pressure was pretty high, so the doc drew some blood and hooked me up to a fetal monitor.

Good news - the baby doing just fine. The fetal stress test was completely normal.

Bad news - my blood test was slightly abnormal. The concern is I am in the beginning stages of preeclampsia - a very dangerous condition for both me and the baby. I am on bedrest for tonight and tomorrow. Sunday we have an appointment at the hospital for additional tests and monitoring.
I am currently at 32 weeks. Say a prayer we are able to keep baby baking for another few weeks.
