4 + Protein and only 17 weeks...

Postby angelkat » Wed Mar 31, 2004 03:55 pm

Had my wonderful doctors appt and of course BP on the higher side (I swear I have white coat sym) anyhoo, since my BP's have been good at home my meds didn't change just concerns about the protein issue. I had to have the usual blood work done and the wonderful 24 hour urine to start in the am (lucky me!).... Why can't I just have a normal worry free pregnancy!!... oh well, pitty me will not get me anywhere....

If I could take that proteinuria from you to keep until that baby's here safe, I just would. In a second [:X] Hang in there...

Ditto for me too. Hopefully the good BP trend will continue.

Thanks Ladies.... We might have found the reason why the high protein... Seems like a UTI and a really bad case of strep throat may be the cause. (I'm praying and praying it is!)

Hugs to all....
