I haven't posted in a while and thought i would just drop a line as an update. 22w yesterday and everything seems to be going smoothly at yesterdays doc appointment my bp was 120/68 ...ive had trace protein ever since my first doc appointment but the doc says thats normal for some people (is that correct ? ) ...so from here on out he says he will see me every 2 weeks will continue LDA and heparin and has added extra calcium to my regimen of prenatal and folic acid ...he hasn't said whether he will induce me early just that he will decide based on how the pregnancy progresses.... so thats my update wish me luck

Good luck!!! I have heard trace protein is normal for some people. Hope the next few months fly by and are uneventful!

Good to see an update and glad to hear no news has been good news! Trace can be normal- especially for those who have already had pre-eclampsia. Partly why sometimes first trimester 24 hour baselines are collected during subsequent pregnancies. Hoping things to continue to be uneventful! :)
