I am now considered High Risk

So I went in there bright and early this morning. Took my stuff from my ER visit, took my little pamphlet with my blood pressure readings for the week. First off they weighed me and I have lost 6lbs in exactly one week. That of course got them a little concerned. I now weigh 2.5lbs less than I did when I got pregnant with this baby. Then they took my blood pressure and it was 144/80 .. and I showed them my weekly list of blood pressures and we talked about the bleeding I have been having and everything. We also talked about my family history and the women on both sides of my family of having pre eclampsia and all. She decided that it would be in mine and the baby's best interest to consider me high risk and start sending me to the Duke High Risk clinic for all my future appts. So she said she would let the High Risk Drs. make the decision to take me out of work completely but she gave me a note for my work to stay out again until I have my High Risk appt. on Monday.
