Good Evening Everyone! Here is the latest update. Kristin had an appointment this morning where her blood pressure was high enough that the doctor sent her to the triage unit at the hospital in Pittsburgh. She called me at work and I jumped in the car to zip in to Pittsburgh. I decided to take the short back road way to get their as quickly as I could and with all the phone calling back and forth I got completely lost and ended up making a 1 hour trip into an almost 2 1/2 hour trip. I ended up going through some very unsavory parts of Pittsburgh and all the way up the mountain on the far side of Pittsburgh before I could get turned around and onto a highway that led to the hospital. When I finally got there Kristin had just been told that she was being admitted for the night so they could keep watching her blood pressure. As of tonight they are saying that she has preeclampsia. That means that we’re looking at bed rest starting soon and that our due date has been pushed up to May 10 (from May 31). After we got Kristin settled into her room for the night we ordered lunch and then were whisked off for an ultrasound. Sunny passed with flying colors and is weighing in at a whopping 4.4 pounds. That puts Sunny in the 86th percentile for weight for this point in a pregnancy. We saw that Sunny has hair but really…..if we can see hair on Sunny, shouldn’t we have been able to see whether Sunny is a boy or girl?????????? I came home to let Maggie out tonight and make arrangements for her tomorrow and will head back in to the hospital first thing in the morning to meet with the doctors and we should have an update for everyone soon. If everything stays as it was when I left tonight we’ll be home tomorrow afternoon/evening. Please send your thoughts along for Kristin and Sunny right now!
