    Hi ladies :)

    I'm currently lying in a delivery suite strapped to lots of monitors!!

    I had a consultant app on Tuesday and they were concerned about my BP. I had a routine MW app booked in today, and she checked my BP 4 times, and each time it came up high.

    I also had protein in my urine, and she was concerned as I've had a couple of headaches this week, and I was sick earlier today.

    I'm hoping all is well and they'll let me go home in an hour or two. My MW scared me by telling me to take my bags with me (which I haven't! I've bought enough to keep me going overnight, just in case.)

    I'll keep you updated as and when I know more! One thing though....omg these delivery rooms are hot! I'm sweating like mad!!

    Thanks ladies :)

    It had come down from the first reading they took. But just did another and it's gone up again! They said there's only a small trace of protein so they aren't too concerned.

    They've sent my bloods off, and depending on the results I should be allowed to go home!

    They've just given me 2 sandwiches as apparently my keytones were soooo high!!

    My OH is hoping we'll be home in time for Eastenders!!

    aw hope its all ok, But honestly if baby decides to make an early appearance then it will be fine, your nearly 39weeks so all is well for the baby, x

    I'd love him to make an early appearance, but I doubt it'll happen!

    My Mum and sister both had high BP at the end of thier pregnancies so I think it's just something that runs in the family!

    The MW asked if I felt any pain as I was having small contractions (prob just BH) but it's exciting as I haven't felt anything at all!

    My BP machine just broke and no one has cone to check it again....hopefully a MW will reappear again soon!

    No hope in me being home in time!! Still waiting on bloods, then a doc has to review them and come up with a plan of action!

    My bus home only comes at half past the hour, so I'm really really hoping I'm out by half 8!

    I haven't had my BP taken since 6 and I font think they are going to do it again (ironic really!)

    A bit of an update ladies.....I just had my first internal!!! Oh god it was weird....all I managed to understand was that my cervix is unfavourable (I'm gonna look at my notes when I get them back!)

    The doctor said as my BP hadn't gone down I have to stay in overnight to be monitored. He said if it's still high and irratic In the morning then they will start inducing me asap (ahhhhhh!)

    If my BP has gone down and they are happy then they want me to come back to the DAU for assessment and they def won't let me go past my due date. He said as they couldn't guarentee my BP wouldn't get high again they don't want me going overdue.

    OMG I'm soooo scared!! My OH just went home as he hasn't eaten and was feeling ill!! It's a lot of information to process!
