I went to the OB today with an upper respiratory infection and UTI (again...my 5th one!). My bp was up. Not sure if it was due to nerves...I always get nervous when they go to take it and it will drop significantly sometimes after they take it (which it did today b/c they took it again). Or it may have been partly b/c I am sick and feeling crappy.
My OB is great though. She ordered bloodwork for Monday to get a "baseline" on my liver enzymes, platelets, etc and also is having me do a 24 hour urine catch from Sunday to Monday. She really seems to be on top of it, and I didn't even have to begin to request these tests! It made me feel better to know that I am in good hands and this is a doctor who takes pre-e seriously and doesn't take chances with it!
