Thanks, tree, ladies.

I just got back from my OB's office and he basically told me the same thing, that even if my protein keeps going up, absent any indication that it's caused by the pregnancy, they'll just let me go. *shrug* My BP was initially a little high when I came in (nurse didn't say), the dr. re-did it himself when he came in and it was 120ish/80, so no big deal there, either. Drew some more blood, of course, to check again on kidney and liver issues, so we'll see, but otherwise, looks like I don't have pre-e...just some other "headscratcher" issue, as he called it. So looks like baby girl will be able to stay put for the duration (YAY!) and apparently, the high protein isn't anything to worry about. They have all told me to keep adding protein in my diet, so I guess it's *really* not a problem. I don't know why I don't feel relieved by this news, rather upset actually, but eh -- pregnant lady hormones, right? :)

Thank you all again for your help and information. I really appreciate it!

It is always good not to have PE, but I can understand your frustration and lack of relief. It is tough to wait this out. I imagine that it is more difficult when they tell you that your BP may be high and that they don't know what is going on. At least they are monitoring your labs.
I hope you feel a little better over the weekend. Keep us posted. We will keep our fingers crossed for a boring couple of weeks for you.

Thanks! I think it is just difficult to switch gears, is all. I thought everything was fine, and then it wasn't and now it is again? Gettin' whiplash, lol. Here's to a boring 4 (hopefully 5) weeks!

I agree about constantly switching gears. That does wear on you. I really hope it stays boring and just mildly frustrating. All you can do is listen to your body.
