34 weeks today, one of my goals! I'm so happy to be safe and sound at Christmas. There were times earlier in this pregnancy when I wasn't sure I would make it this far!

Merry Christmas to everybody. I hope today is happy and peaceful for all of you!

I had an appointment the day after Christmas, and my present from my OB was a 24 hour urine test!

Oh, well, nothing I haven't done before..

Just got a call from the lab. It's at 700, but my baseline from 8 weeks was 611 and I don't have any other symptoms, so they're willing to wait until my own OB gets a chance to review things and talk to me on Monday.

The weekly BPPs help! My little boy has turned over again and is in breech position right now, but he's passing the BPPs with flying colors every time. I hope he flips again soon.

Ay, sorry you had a rise in protein, so glad you had a baseline done, really puts the number in perspective.

We had a higher than usual baseline so when ours went up folks weren't as concerned since there weren't any other worrisome symptoms and we were on top of monitoring and sounds like you are too. I hope its the case for you as well!

Yeah. I'm starting to get some swelling in my feet, but no pitting and it goes away as soon as I put them up for a bit, so mostly it reminds me to rest more.

The big question right now is if my OB will let me go as far as 39 weeks, or if she decides it's not worth waiting that far and we only go 37 weeks. The rise in protein does make me a little nervous, but at least it's not horribly more than before.

Your baseline tells me - in my non-medical opinion - that its nothing crazy high and the fact that you are having great Bpp's is reasuring so those are all really positive things!! My MFM doesnt get alarmed over protein numbers when there are no other symptoms. Keep going and growing!! ;)

Got the full numbers at my appointment today. 752 for protein, and platelets good (199). She said all my liver numbers look perfect, and sent me home with another jug to fill. My blood pressure was good today on the new dose, too, so we're just making sure the protein doesn't jump on us.

Baby still breech, but he's wiggled around some. I'm hoping he finishes turning over soon!
