Bp seems to be elevating... !

Postby mychaelelaine » Fri Aug 24, 2012 01:29 pm

I don't know, I hope not. I have had readings over 140/90 but protein isn't yet over 300. It was 280 last Tuesday. My baseline is 72. My Dr yesterday ordered another 24 hour so I'm doing that now. Crossing my fingers, tightly, that it doesn't go higher. I'm recording my pressure 4xs a day so she can determine if I need an increase in meds. I'm not too nervous seeing I'm 32 weeks Monday and don't have a diagnosis as of yet. I've read the average time from diagnosis to delivery is 2 weeks so I'm praying even if I have a diagnosis soon that my lil man still has two weeks to bake. My Dr yesterday also said she's definitely expecting preeclampsia due to my history and the fact that I now have protein and increasing bp. It's just a matter of when. Just wanted to update. Wish me luck!

I hope your 24 comes back stable. As our pregnancy progressed my bp rose and rose- ... just a hopeful story we made it to 36weeks! :) I think we would have made it farther if not for the PTL and other issues we had going on. Good Luck!!

Thanks Lauren! I dropped 24 hour off this morning so we shall see if protein gets worse or stays the same. Is it possible for protein to decrease, anyone know?

With my second mine bounced up and down. With our 3rd it held steady for awhile around 400-480. Hoping it stays the same or lower!

We're doing our final 24 hour tomorrow to see what it is PP... if I never see an orange jug again I will be one happy camper!
