One year ago today - we battled an icey snow storm to drive an hour to get to the hospital where we were meeting with a perinatologist for the very first time. They told me there that because I was only 22 weeks there wasn't much they could do. They wouldn't admit me to the hospital until I passed the 24 week mark. Oh - and by the way - my amniotic fluid levels had dropped from dangerously low to non-existant... So please, go home, lay in bed, rest and obsess about the fact that we have no clue what is happening with your body or your baby. And again - no mention of preeclampsia or a blood pressure check.
