Test Results Reevaluated and Uncertain Delivery Date 

Today I received a phone call from an known caller. Though I suspected it was from a telemarketer, I answered it. To my surprise it was Dr. C who was scheduled o do my Cesarean section tomorrow evening.

I was confused, though I thought perhaps she had some last minute questions or instructions. It turned out this was not even close to why she had called.

With my blood pressure readings yesterday and going back further in my chart, she determined my higher blood pressure readings had been high here and there from my second trimester on. As they were normal to low yesterday, with this information my blood pressure is more similar to regular or chronic high blood pressure.

Additionally my protein numbers do not suggest preenclampsia nor does anything else as I’m not experiencing other symptoms like blurry vision or pain under my breastbone so it’s likely I do not have preenclampsia.

So, now it will be a week by week evaluation. Neither we nor the doctors know when the baby’s delivery date will be now, it may even be at 39 weeks as we originally planned.
