Unfortunately not all healthcare providers give answers/info automatically. Some of them need a nudge, a direct question from the patient. Whenever I see/call a doctor I always bring along a notebook. It contains all my questions and then I add the docs'/nurses' answers (I tend to forget, especially when I am worried); and I don't leave before I get some answers. Perhaps you can call them, even before your appt, and ask what it all means? Are you seeing a MFM/peri or a regular ob or both?
We are not docs here, but that much I can tell you: The criteria for diagnosis is >300 protein in your urine (24h catch) and two readings of 140/90 or greater, measured on two separate occasions six hours apart. Also, bedrest seems to help some women, but has not been proven scientifically to necessarily change the overall outcome.
If no other symptoms are present your doctors might just be very careful and are trying to be proactive, keeping a close eye on you. Are you monitoring your BP at home and keeping a log? If not, I'd suggest you do so and present the log to your doc at your next appointment. I would also ask for bloodwork at your next appointment.
How are you feeling otherwise?
