Hi there,
Thank you for your question.
With the symptoms that you are having I think that you should go to the ER and get this checked out as these symptoms and the labs that you mentioned indicate that you require emergency delivery.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Please do not rate me for my services if you are not satisfied.
Kindest Regards

wife already in hospital but doctors wont make decision


Expert:  Dr. SH replied 4 years ago.
The good thing is that she is in the hospital.
They must be monitoring her and must be waiting for the right time.
I think that you should be patient, keep yourself updated on her situation and keep asking questions to the treating doctor as to the immediate plans of action.
They should make a decision soon. The good thing is that her blood pressure is normal.
Kindest Regards
