This is a silly question and one I should know as a nurse but for some reason I am coming up blank on what labs I should ask the Dr to run at my next visit. I am starting to have higher BP's 130/90's (usual non pregnant 105/60), some mild pitting edema in my legs and feet, generalized swelling every where else, a 5 lb weight gain this week, trace protein in my urine at home, and crappy headaches. I was thinking the 24 hour urine for a base line and liver enzymes. Am I missing anything that would be important to miss.
Also do you think that I should ask for a small dose of BP meds as my numbers are so much greater than my baseline. I was really trying to be on top of my pregnancy this time and will hopefull make it much further than last so that I get to stay in town. We only have a level 2 nicu here so I was air lifted two hours away and it was really hard being gone and then having to go visit baby. Although I did love that hospital and received great care. Hope everyone is having a good weekend and thanks in advance for any advice.
