Well, as I predicted, the BP went nuts again today. It was roughly 160/100 +/- for an hour that I know of. it wouldn't go down even lying down. i checked 2 other people to check the machine. So I spent my anniversary in L&D (9 years!) Anyway, a speedy 30 minutes after my arrival (sarcasm) and after lying on my left side, my BP was 120/79. BTW, which arm do you put the cuff on? Both of my machines say left, but this was on my right which is always lower. Baby was fine, I bottomed out at 106/65 (hasn't been that low in 3 years) and topped out at a whopping 133/89. No protein - I had not eaten in more than 5 hours and peeed pure water, so I am not sure of that one either. But, I never spilled protein with Ian. No other symptoms, so after 2 hours, the nurse called the Dr (not mine on call) relayed my history and let me go with instructions to follow up with my OB. Now, at 3 am I have slept about an hour and am venting so maybe I can go to sleep again! Thanks gals, I will update you after talking to OB tomorrow. OOPS, I mean later today!
