My gut that something wasn't right turned out to be accurate. Last night at home, my bp was going nuts. Had some 148/103 and called, and they had me go to l and d for monitoring. Blood labs were good and no dipstick protein. BP was still up but a bit erratic. They sent me home, and now I'm in the ob waiting room to be seen today. Would love to be pregnant at least one more week!

I wonder if this stuff happened with my other kids, but I didn't know since I didn't have a cuff at home.

Sounds like a good plan. Let us know what the doc has to say

I'm going to call in the morning just to ease my mind, I think. I was looking at my records from my 2nd child, and it looks like I had bigger weight-gaining weeks toward the end. Could be just how I do it, and hopefully it has nothing to do with pre-e!

Just a quick reply, as I am doing errands. I'd say if you feel you want to be seen, ask your doc for it. If nothing else, you will have ease of mind. Thinking of you.

I'm 35w5d. At my check-up today, it showed that I was up 3 lbs. since my appointment from last Thursday. All total, I'm up about 30 lbs.

Today I saw the nurse practitioner since my OB wasn't available. The NP said she wasn't concerned about the weight since I'm not swelling. I am unsure of my urine protein status, but I do know my BP was acceptable at 122/70s.

I couldn't remember the Preeclampsia Foundation weight gain thing while I was in the office, so I didn't push for anything. But now that I see 2 lbs. in a week can be a red flag.

My next appointment is the 17th. Should I leave a message for the OB to ask her about the weight gain? What would even be done? I'm not having other pre-e symptoms.
