So I had my 2nd apt today and we are 8 weeks pregnant. I had pre-e with my son which lead me to deliver at 30 weeks in 2010. My dr did a bunch of labs before we concieved and said my liver and kidney blood work came back perfect so there was no extended damage from the pre-e with my son. With all that said, I have been monitoring my bp at home and its been around 120/70s. Today we go in and my bp was 135/84 and I had +1 protiein in my urine. I kept telling them I take my bp at home its not that high and they re took it and got the same number. My dr is having us do a 24 hour urine collection at home to get a baseline but Im still concerned. My last pregnancy was great up until 26 weeks and this one is already starting early. My dr said if I had this exact same bp and protein at 24 weeks with my history I would be put on hospital bedrest. I have a constant headache like I did with my son which reminds me of a bp headache. Other than that I dont have any other signs of elevated bp.
I have tried to do some research but everything I have found refers to signs coming after the 20 week mark. I am going to start testing my urine at home too along with my bp to monitor it but has anyone else had this happen to them this early? I have a feeling bedrest is only a matter of time.
