I am 24 and currently 28 weeks with my first!! This has been the toughest experience in my life! I have been so sick my entire pregnancy and now this... I have been keeping a very close eye on everything this pregnancy and well recently things have stopped making sense :S
I was recently at my prenatal appointment and my doctor informs me that there has been protein present, in small amounts, in my urine for the length of my pregnancy. She continues on to tell me that this urine sample had slightly higher levels than in the past. The appointment continues on and she takes my blood pressure, my normal blood pressure before and during my pregnancy was 115/80, now it was reading 136/98. With this my doctor becomes concered, she places me in a cold dark room alone and quiet for 20 mins and does another BP, 125/90, better but still not my normal. My doctor informed me that these could be signs of PE and that we will have to continue to monitor.
Fast forward a few days, I am feeling hot, vomiting food and liquid, light headed, and dizzy, I am driven to ER by my husband, and they immediately check my blood pressure, 149/109. WHAT?! , they continue on and do a urine sample, no protein at all. I am pumped with IV fluids told to keep hydrated and stay out of the sun.
I still haven't been feeling 100% at all, or even close to, and I don't have another prenatal until the 29th.
What does all this mean?! would be more than willing to give any other info.
