Jenny, you have the right to rant! I know what it's like just waiting and wishing the dr's would/could do something. It is awful.
If you are unclear about your doctors decisions, make them explain them to you. Ask why they aren't doing things and at what point they will. Have them give you a game plan. Something saying we're trying to get you to ____ weeks. If your protein reaches _____ level or your BP is ______, etc ________ will be our action. Sorry for all the blanks, but you get the idea. Perhaps print off the signs/symptoms list on the "about preeclampsia" section of the home page, check off the symptoms you are having and bring it with so they are completely aware.
Hang in there hun, I know it is stressful! Lastly, if you truly do not feel you are being cared for adequately, get another consult...it sounds like you might have already. And here is a post by Anne about how to get adequate care :
Hope that helps, Catherine
