Just got the call... protein was 390. My bps haven't been THAT high, so I am not sure if I have pre-e again or not... guessing they don't just go off of the protein... so I guess I wait for that. I think my highest reading has been 128/90.

1+ for me was 208 on my 24 hour. But I have been dipping trace at my MFM - just turned in a 24 hour urine today and I'm sure it is higher than my baseline was.

My dr.;s don't get concerned until 2+ and said 1+ can be resulting from discharge and so forth.

Good thing you are doing the 24 hour!

35 weeks today :)

I know the dips are inaccurate... I did another this afternoon, and I think it was clean, so that made me feel good, but I feel like I am not peeing enough for what I am drinking... we'll see.

I know 1+ isn't horrible also, it is just that when I had 1+ with Addie, I was in the hospital 3 days later, and had her a week after that. Hopefully, if this is it, it will move slower.

I too have seen estimates about what 1+ means and such, but am not sure where it is. We have had gals around here have 1+ and it has meant nothing to severe pre-e catagory, so really getting your 24 hour urine will really let you know what you are at. Lots can effect the dip test, so I am glad that you are getting the 24 hour urine, although I know how awful they can be.

Take care.

My bottom number has gone up a little too but its holding steady. How far along are you? 1+ isn't too bad. I don't recall my OB being too terribly concerned about 1+. It was when I hit 3+ that we decided to induce. Hopefully the 24 hr test will be good and you can keep hanging in there.

Today I went to the doc and had 1+ protein, and my bottom bp number was a little elevated. I am starting a 24 hour urine... wondering if anyone can remind me what 1+ is about equal to... I swear I have read it somewhere and now I can't find anything! I realize the strips aren't that accurate all the time, so, kinda just wondering.

Today was my celebration day too, 1 day past the day I had Addie, so I guess anything now is bonus time! Hopefully we can get 2 more weeks though!
