I am having the same issues with my docs and even when they tell me, well since your bp if fine, blah blah I have still insisted already by 21 weeks on labs, two 24 hour urine tests and an ultrasound . I don't care what they say, there is still no cure for preeclampsia, therefore theses docs don't know enough about it to say everything looks good now so,no need for further tests at this time. There are no real experts in the Ob/MFM world in pre-e, just those that will take us on and hope for the best in managing our care. Its all money/insurance bullshit in the end so advocate for yourself, if your not comfortable then insist! We know how quickly you can go from all looks fine to big trouble! I did pay out of pocket for "extra ultrasound" but it was well worth it! Your body your baby!!! Speak up!
