Thanks for the update. If I'm doing my math correctly, your wife should be a little over 37 weeks at this point. In my non-medical opinion, it's great that she is still pregnant.

Just out of curiousity, did your wife see a maternal-fetal specialist? And what is his plan to lower your wife's proteinuria? (I ask these questions because as a husband, I, too, would want to make sure that the proteinuria level was going down and that my wife and child were in good hands.) I have never heard of Brick Layers Syndrome; sorry to hear that your wife was diagnosed with it. I hope that your wife's specialist is someone that you are comfortable placing your wife and unborn child's lives in his hands, that you can ask him any question and he answers it to your satisfaction, and that his course of treatment keeps your wife and child healthy and strong.

We continue to hope and pray that your wife and unborn child continue to be healthy and well. Thank you again for the update; we continue to wish you all the best.

i started my preg with 500 of protein. i have no underlying issues either. i was told that during preg the kidneys are being worked harder so you spill more protein than normal the norm is 300 ish and below. mine went to under 100 after the preg. i saw a neph just to be sure and no problems.
good luck

Me and my wife are going through the exact same thing right now. I posted in another forum. Our appt with the kidney specialist is the 19th I believe.
