I remember your previous posts, and I'm glad you seem to have gotten closer the bottom of the chronic proteinuria.. and possible relation to the chronic high blood pressure. I did not have any known kidney issues prior to our pregnancies- when we did a baseline 24 hour during our 3rd, we already had proteinuria and it was discussed that this was most likely due to damage from my previous pregnancy. Though after my last pregnancy, we did another 24 hour to see where I stand, and it was only on the higher limit of normal. Pregnancy puts your whole body through the wringer if you ask me- and for those of us with complications even more so.
I think a piece of the puzzle that you are missing and that would help provide you clarity is to schedule a pre-conception appointment with a maternal fetal medicine doctor (high risk OB). You would have to see one anyway during a pregnancy, so establishing care with one now would be beneficial. They are used to high risk factors and will be able to provide you a bit of a road map of what type of care and pregnancy you might expect.
