Sorry I didn't post this yesterday...or the day before [;)] I've been kinda busy. Britton broke one of the lugnuts on his car and of course didn't have the right tool at home to get the stuck half out so I ended up driving him to work yesterday, having my meeting, going to lunch with him, then picking him up. LOL Mechanics and their cars.
SO ANYWAY, my appointment went well. She said my labs came back good...only value she told me was creatinine at .6 and I didn't press for the others. Odd thing was that she kept using the term "superimposed preeclampsia" instead of Pre-e this time...thought she had said she wouldn't consider me as an underlying
chronic hypertension patient since my BP's started out so great. Oh well. LOL
She has also decided to do ultrasounds every 2 weeks now (each appointment) instead of every four. I'm not sure exactly why but don't mind, honestly [:D] She'll be looking at afi one time and growth measurements the next.
I was asked if I wanted weekly appointments and said no...at this point they wouldn't do much other than what I do at home. And if I'm ever concerned, they'll know right away appointment or no.
I have the orders for my next 24 hr urine. They want it done in just about 2 weeks. Have orders for my glucola too...fun!
My next appointment is actually in 3 weeks since my doctor is going out of town, so I have a drop-in bp/urine/weight check in 2 weeks (when I'll be doing my tests too).
Oh, and I've actually lost 2 lbs again...though pitting is still there. Okay, for you edema geniuses, what is it that causes the pitting? Last pg I had TONS of swelling but never pitting (like 30 lbs) untill after delivery...this time hardly any swelling visible as well as weight gain and I'm pitting. Was it just the bedrest? Rest doesn't change the pitting at all. I would have thought it was ammount of swelling but that doesn't seem to fit with me...am I just an odd-ball? Well...don't answer that! [:o)]
