    I had been having abdominal cramps since 6 pm yesterday and was getting kind of concerned. I ended up calling my doctors office & told them I'd been having abdominal cramping since yesterday & they told me to go to labor and delivery. I went there earlier today & was put on the monitor and had some tests done including a urine test which showed trace amounts of protein & I also had high blood pressure so I was sent home with a diagnosis of pre-eclampsia... :/ I'm not too worried for now. They are having me do a 24 hour urine collection test & hopefully that will bring more accurate results to know how severe my case of pre-e is. I'm glad I went in though, this just goes to show that it's always better to be safe than sorry.

    I'm sorry sweetheart :( One of my good friends had pre-eclampsia, but just so you know.. all is perfect with her little boy. He's 18 months now. I hope they figure it all out and you have more answers tomorrow!

    Thank you ladies. I'm remaining as positive as possible. I've just gotta rest as much as possible and take it one day at a time. I have my childbirth preparation class on Wednesday & I'm hoping I'm allowed to go to that.
