Thank you both! I talked to the doctor and they aren't concerned. They actually think I'm drinking too much water which I didn't know was possible! I'm to cut back and come back next week. They said that with so much intake my liver works fadter so a random sample looks high but when they did all their equations or what not it was low enough to be considered negative. I'm so relieved! For now.

:( It is so hard to remain calm and collected after getting some worrisome symptoms and results. I hope your doctors will contact you soon with their input on what it all means for now. I found that my second pregnancy was mostly waiting. Waiting for being ok, waiting for the dreaded milestones, waiting for lab results, waiting for the nurse to call back, waiting to take the BP again, waiting for the shoe to drop, just always waiting and during all this waiting to stay calm. Almost impossible. Thinking of you. Sending you hugs.

Oh no! I'm so sorry you've hit a bump in your pregnancy... I hope it turns out to be minor and then the only bump. But regardless it's not fair and it's extra scary after loss. Always remember this pregnancy is different... you are different. You'll be monitored differently and everyone will be on their toes.

I know it's bittersweet. I looked at all our extra monitoring in our second pregnancy as our daughter's gift to her lil' siblings. It was her way of looking out for them... and it was key to identifying issues early so that we could have the best chance at success.

I'm keeping all crossables crossed for you!!

So things are not as sunny as I was hoping. At my appointment yesterday baby looked great, they estimated he or she weighs 1lb10oz at 24 weeks putting them in the 59th percentile! After my ultrasound I had my dreaded weight and bp taken. Bp was 123/86 which isn't high but my diastolic hasn't been that high all pregnancy and I've gained 10lbs this month. One of my most obvious symptoms with Malia was extreme edema so they sent me to the lab but assured me up and down it wasn't time to worry....well that's impossible for us! I have not yet spoken to the doctor but have received results online....low platelets and protein. My blood pressures at home are great, even in the optimal range but the protein has me panicked. I want so badly to have a healthy baby, I don't think I can handle another loss. I'm just so scared that this is going down the same path. I'm so early and I know it's nothing severe yet but as we all know preeclampsia is an unpredictable disease and can stay at bay for weeks or progress in a matter of days.
