I'm worried about your blood pressure. It was higher than normal two times AND there was more than 300 mg of protein in the 24 hour urine sample you did for us
It is very serious but we are here to help.You must follow my instructions for home care very carefully or we will have to admit you
Oh No! Is my baby ok? what should I do?
You'll have to be your own nurse at home. That means take your blood pressure four times a day, weigh yourself daily, count baby's kicks, and rest frequently on your left side. Can you do that?
I understand your concerns. However, if you don't want to be hospitalized it is very important that you follow all the steps. Resting is an important part of that. You and your baby could have serious risks, including a seizure, if you don't do everything I'm explaining.
I'm worried that my husband won't be able to handle our two year old. Who will make dinner and clean house if I'm in bed all day?
Don't forget about the warning signs we discussed. Call us right away!
I feel better now that you gave me the numbers for a homemaking service and support group for my husband. I'll also call about the home childbirth class. You helped me feel very prepared!
I LEARNED FROM MY FELLOW CLASSMATES. THEY'RE THE BEST!!
