Well, this could be the day! Kendra saw Dr. Brazus this morning. Her blood pressure was 155/83, was 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced. There was protein in her urine and her stomach measured 42 cm. when it should have been 37 cm. She has that much extra fluid. No wonder Kendra has had sharp pain in her upper abdomen. These are all signs of pre-eclampsia.
Because she already has an appointment this afternoon with Maternal Fetal Medicine, Dr. B let Kendra go home with strict instructions to make sure she doesn't leave the MFM this afternoon until they talk to Dr.B.. We are guessing (I'm positive!) that they will send her directly to St. Vincent's Women's Hospital. Like Kendra said in her blog, "if there's no update to this blog this evening, you'll know where I am....."
