Well, I'm officially a pregnant woman with Pre-E today :-/ .... my third 24-hour urine sample came back with a protein level of 1,333! Big jump from 400 a couple weeks ago. My BP is still borderline-bad, with my first reading at the OB office around 140/95. But, with a little rest I am able to get my subsequent readings down to the 120s/70s.
At first my OB sent me to the hospital with plans to start induction tonight, but after monitoring me at the hospital for 4 hours, my BP was good, all fetal movements perfect, and bloodwork came back great... so as long as I keep resting without elevating my BP, the only problematic symptom is the protein. I convinced my OB that I would strictly bedrest at home and now they plan to have me come in for another check-up on Saturday. I really hope to go into labor on my own and deliver when the baby and my body are ready... (as long as LO stays head-down like she's been for 3 days now) Hoping for the best!
