Blood pressure out of control at the moment, 174/108 last night, got the Nifedipine 5 mg bite and swallow, and that brought it down momentarily, then they increased my long acting meds and added some more, but this morning I am at 168/100. Marginally better. I think I need more drugs, I just don't know how many more drugs there are left in the magic hat for me. I am on Adalat XL 30 mg twice a day (maximum dose), Labetalol 200 mg three times a day (there is room to go up to 400 mg three times a day), and there is a third medication called Aldomet that they might try, but it is not as effective.
I am hoping so much to get to Monday or Tuesday, not only because I will be 33 weeks by then, but also because my husband is stuck working in our home town and cannot find coverage to get out. Since his is an essential service, he has to stay, and I dearly would like him to be here and see his son being born. Hopefully it will happen.
I don't sleep almost at all. I am going to ask for some Ativan tonight, otherwise it will be my third night in a row of three hours sleep total. I spent my nights doing relaxation exercises, and meditating. It is very relaxing, but it is not sleep unfortunately. I just hover above entering sleep for long hours, and almost cannot tell if I am awake or not, but it is not as restful as real sleep would be.
