On Monday at work while reading aloud to the class my eyes starting jumping ALL over the place and they were so blurry. When I stood up I felt very dizzy and lightheaded. The vision was bad for almost 45 minutes. I called my OB and they said to come right in. The OB was concerned with my ankle swelling and my blood pressure so he put me on a 24-hour urine (sorry if TMI) to monitor my proteins. The next day, Tuesday, vision was worse than ever. My husband called OB and off to the hospital we went. We spent the night in Labor and Delivery. I must say, nurses are some of the most amazing people I have met. They were very kind to us and answered all of our "first time parents" questions. Long story shortened: As of now, I do NOT have preeclampsia, but will go back to OB Monday to retest for proteins and blood pressure. They sent me home late yesterday with orders to stay on bedrest and keep up my gestational diabetes diet and de-stress, etc. I can return to work on Monday. What a terrible time to be off work for a week -- This is a crazy time of year with holiday shows, parties, etc. I am trying really hard to destress and not worry about work, the sub, the kids and if the parents are upset.. Please keep loveable baby Liam in your prayers!
