WHAT A DAY!

DD's due date is Dec. 25, and today she had a doctor's appt. Well, she hasn't dilated yet, but baby is in position . But...she has been admitted to the hospital because her blood pressure shot up. They did all kinds of tests and everything is fine right now. They started her on blood pressure meds this afternoon, but it is still high. They started with a very low dose, so it may take a while before we see a change.

So, I hate to ask because you all have been praying so hard the past few weeks, but send some good thoughts our way please. The doc said the worst that might happen right now is they might have to induce her and we'll get our grandbaby a little early.

My DIL's blood pressure shot up also with my grandson. Though it frightened everyone it turned out just fine and she's never had a problem with it again post partum. Prayers being sent out for your daughter to deliver exactly when her baby is ready to be born and no more frightening stuff for grandma, and I suspect, great grandma.

It may just be baby's way of saying I don't want to be born on Christmas. I want two presents, not just one.

Michele- You can bet we'll add your daughter to our prayers and get well wishes. I'm glad your daughter is in good hands in the hospital. Is this your first grandchild?

Yes Jeanne, first grandchild, a boy. We are so excited, especially after being in the maternity wing today and seeing all those babies.

Thanks Missy and Geri. If everything is stable, she may be home by Sunday.

I had pregnancy induced hypertension too. My Dr. induced me a week early. Everything turned out fine for us. I've never had a problem with high blood pressure since (knocking on wood). Josh is great too. I will keep your DD and new grandson in my prayers.

Sending prayers for your daughter Michele.

I had pre-eclampsia with Benjamin(my first) and they watched me like a hawk. I had high blood pressure with him as well(but not afterwards). I also was induced with him and went 2 weeks over.

Tell your daughter we are thinking of her and her sweet baby boy......
