Welcome to the forum
sorry you are going through this - I can see where you'd be frustrated. It does sound a little too confusing to have so many people involved in your care. What would concern me most is the dark colored urine and the lack of it along with the high BPs. With your protein increasing, I'd want it to continue being checked, also.
It sounds like you're in the UK, and I don't totally understand medical care there, BUT I would want to get down to one doctor managing you so that there are no complications from varying thoughts. Things can also get overlooked or missed when there are two different doctors each thinking the other has something covered. It would be preferable for one doctor to have all the info from appts and from L&D trips. Is that possible for you?
An official diagnosis of PE requires 2 BP readings of 140/90 or higher (which you have) and protein of 300 or greater. I would make sure you are well read on the signs and symptoms and report any of those to your doctor, even just a general feeling of something being "off" or "not right". Some women who have BP cuffs at home will be told certain numbers that need to be called into the doctor (which can keep you from running in to L&D triage "unnecessarily", in some cases). 37-38 weeks is normal for PE pregnancies. PE can change quickly and without warning, so delivering as soon as they think baby can handle it is the best option for mama & baby. Because it is a placenta problem, the only cure is to get that placenta out!
