Pray For Me Please

I'll make this short. It appears that any hopes I had of ever having an easy, low-risk pregnancy have been chucked out the window. I think I held onto those hopes for all of about 2 seconds.

Here's the scoop. I am 9 weeks pregnant (or thereabouts). My blood pressure is already elevated. Considering that I have no family history of high blood pressure, I weigh 120 lbs, I've NEVER had HBP, I have no other risk factors; it would appear that this is pregnancy induced.

Yippee for me. I am a bit freaked out. I tend to do that. I can't seem to get in touch with a doctor who can prescribe something for me (ya know... military and all that) so I've put myself on bedrest until they call me back.

I am determined to have a healthy baby born as close to full-term as is possible for me. And I am not going to let it kill me. So... Please pray for me. Pray for peace and healing. Pray for Ed and Eddie because I have no idea how I am going to tend to their needs while I am on self-inflicted bedrest.

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. This is part of why. I am going to take a nap and to pray some more.

Thanks so much for your prayers.

Know that I am praying for you. As impossible as it seems, please try to stay calm and not worry about it. I had HBP during one of my pregnancys, that was the only time, and baby was fine....by God's grace.

Update when you are able.

Hi, I'm Jennifer. Just found your blog after reading a comment you left on Neonatal Doc. So sorry to hear that your BP is already becoming elevated, again! Best of luck for many more weeks of pg, and for a healthy outcome in the end!

Hope it's ok to mention this.....I wanted to invite you to a forum for Preeclampsia Survivors that I started a year ago. Our members have all suffered PIH, PE and/or HELLP syndrome, and we have a wonderful group of ladies who provide support, friendship and understanding to each other. Please visit us, I know everyone would love to meet you and to cheer you on throughout this current pregnancy!
