They dont.. They havent really mentioned meds yet, I guess because my bp tends to kind of bounce around a bit. The past few days its been running about 150s/80s MOST of the day but it was 130/70 at my NST this morning. Im not really comfortable with the higher bps.. I feel like total crap and after DD having IUGR, it makes me really nervous, but im not really sure what the side effects of meds are either..

are you on any meds for the BP? Some Drs tolerate higher BPs than others. My Dr is quite happy that I bob around 140-150/90-100 and I'm on meds. Thank goodness you are being monitored though. Good luck

My protein came back at 222 (from 175 8 days before) :/. Seems to be trending upwards

I called my dr this morning about my BP's from last night b/c they were super high and took a while to come down (151/87 & 148/89) then shot back up this morning after I got out of bed and had breakfast. He wanted to get me in to see MFM today so I went in and my bp there was descent 131/80. He said I definitely have brisk reflexes but no clonus. They went over my history of IUGR and pre-e with the last two pregnancies and he told me that one of the first things that starts to drop off with IUGR is abdomen growth and this baby's abdomen was measuring 60th percentile at my scan on the 10th of October and overall was in the 53rd percentile and 4 lbs 1 oz. They did a BPP today there and her abdomen was measuring a week behind and she was now in the 43rd percentile and 4 lbs 5 oz. He didnt say anything about the change but it really concerns me that shes dropped 10% in a week (It WAS a different office so idk if that makes a difference or not). He said that he didnt think that my headaches were related to pre-e but possibly just the higher pressures since its been going on for weeks now. I mentioned that they were increasing in severity and he said just to look for more change, and watch my bp. He wants my dr to start twice weekly NST's and keep an eye on my bp and re-scan me in 2 weeks.
