Another Doctors Appt.....

Postby angelkat » Wed Apr 14, 2004 04:12 pm

This time my BP was really good (for me at least) still spilling protein (+4) but when he look at my 24 hour urine (WNL) he didn't seem to concerned and said it just must be I don't like early morning appt. I go back next week for my Level II Ultrasound and then back to the doctor the following week. I might as well just pull up a bed there as I feel like I am there ALOT. The best part is I have only gained 4 pounds even though I feel like a blimp... Now, we just play the wait and see game.....

Sounds like good news overall! I know about the wait and see game, it's not my favorite! Hang in there!

So glad your bp was good and that the 24 hour was WNL - that's good news!

Pugmommy - A level II ultrasound is not the same as 3-d or 4-d. I'm currently at 31 weeks and I've been doing level II ultrasounds every 4 weeks. It doesn't seem that much different than a regular ultrasound to me, except that they can measure blood flow and other fluids and get a more detailed look at body parts. I think they look at the 4 quadrants of the heart along with measuring other body parts, depending on how far along you are. I just saw that you mentioned something about a level II ultrasound in another one of your posts and wanted to let you know...

Here the level 2 U/S is the U/S given to almost everyone in the 18-24 week range.
So the docs here never make a distinction between them.
