I am home!!! YAY!!!
I don't have pre-eclampsia as of now :) My blood pressure has leveled out in the 120's over 60-70, of course that was on hospital bedrest, but it lets us know it can be controled. The protein in my urine turned out to be a UTI. They found the UTI the first night I was in the hospital, but had to be sure the protein was from that and not Pre-eclampsia, so we had to wait on cultures. My bloodwork all still checks out good with the exception of the low iron, but I've started taking iron for that.
In the meantime while I was in the hospital they ran several other tests that are routine in pregnancy including a glucose test. I "passed" all but the glucose test :( So now I have gestational diabetes & have to check my blood sugar 5 times a day. I'd rather give myself shots than prick my finger!!! Right now they are just monitoring it. It is very confusing for me because they want me to take my blood sugar 2 hours after breakfast, lunch, & dinner... That would be great if I wasn't eating for 4 and constantly eating... I'm not suppose to eat for those 2 hours either, which is going to be really hard for me because I don't have the room in my belly for a big meal so I eat lots of small meals & snacks. Anyways... I go to the doctor today, so maybe they can help me make sense of it, the "diabetic educator" didn't really seem to understand my circumstances, she didn't even know I was having triplets until I told her :|
So that's it, I went in for pre-eclampsia & came out with a UTI & gestational diabetes.
I'll post again later today or tomorrow about todays ultrasound and doctors visit. I can't wait to see how much the boys have grown :)
