My protein is actually better! How is that possible? LOL You'd think I'd be releived but instead I'm thinking they aren't going to watch me as closely. Can I just say I hate pregnancy!?

total protein = 148
serum creatinine = 0.5 (a little low apparently?)
creatinine total 24 hr urine = 1.3
Creatinine clearacne = 153
Glucose = 157 (almost exactly the same as last pg for the 1 hr) so I have to do the 3 hr. They want me to do this carb diet for 3 days beforehand. Great...all I need is a more strict diet! My 3hr last time came back great and I didn't even have to do the last reading. What fun. Can pregnancy get any better? LOL Sorry, just a bit irritated by all this.

Oh Catherine, you have me cracking up right now!

I'm glad that your protein is better! And, I have a suspicion that you won't let them get too relaxed about your care [;)]!

I hope your 3 hour test goes well!

Catherine...
I feel ya honey! I'm glad your labs are much better, and I am sure they will still pay close attention to you! if they don't you'll get on them :o)

Pg really bites sometimes doesn't it? What I wouldn't give to have a "normal" pg, just like all of you. Even when things seem to be going good, you are afraid that the shoe could drop at any moment. No rest for the worried is there?
Take care! My prayers are with you :o)

Catherine~

Glad to see your protein down. I have had none or trace and it is actually driving me more nuts with anticipation. I am a worry wart and I guess I have my panties in a bunch on a regular basis waiting for the worst. It is so hard after all we have been through. Just think... it could be about 9 more weeks!

T~ Amen sister!! [:D]

Suz, I just pray that they deliver me in 9 weeks!

Is there such a thing as a "no medical reason but I am done" induction? LOL Now I'm somewhat worried that I will have a normal pregnancy but still be totally on guard and then have to wait it all out. How backwards is that? Well, atleast the OB said they might induce early for baby size. Maybe my gallbladder issue can help inforce that idea. Even delivery in 9 wks means atleast 12 more weeks of fatless food. Okay, I'll stop complaining! LOL Thanks for the support and understanding of my wacky mind ladies!
