34wks, doctor not worried yet?

Postby buffy » Thu Nov 06, 2003 07:46 am

I am 34 wks and have had some pretty bad swelling ever since the 27wk. I have been told to cut out all salt and put up my feet all day, which I have been doing. However, my blood pressure has gone up from 110/70 to 137/85 and I have gained a total of 48lbs so far, 8 of those in the past two weeks! I eat right and don't over do it but I am worried. The doctor said yesterday that I have "trace amounts of this and that" in my urine this time but he acted as if he wasn't worried. I don't go back for another 2 weeks and am worried that when I do go back that they may say that I have pre-e. Shou;d I be? It seems to me from what I have read that the symptoms are there but I'm not sure. Can you give me some more insight to this?[?]
Thank You in advance, Buffy
