Hi Andrea,
Welcome to the forums. I've moved your post to the "Ask the Experienced" forum since it gets more traffic.

You could always ask your health care provider for a referral to a MFM (Maternal Fetal Medicine) specialist for a consult since you are high risk. MFMs have more experience and training in high risk pregnancies: http://www.smfm.org

You could also ask about the possibility of a 24 hour urine test to help establish a baseline to compare to later.

Are you monitoring your blood pressure at home?

My name is Andrea and im currently 22 weeks and 3 days. Over the past several weeks I've been boosted up to 290 mg a day of bp medicine. My past two pregnancies I have developed preeclampsia and my bp has been out of control and im experiencing alot of swelling in my hands and legs/feet. I've had my urine checked but my doctor keeps saying im fine. What do i do?
