Officially have pre-e again

Postby ellemoon » Sat Aug 03, 2013 02:43 pm

I got my 24 hour urine results and they came back at a whopping 1065 :shock: , so I definitely have pre-e again. :( I did not expect them to be that high because my BP hasn't been that elevated and I have minimal swelling.
So, my doctor has me on bedrest and says I should make it to scheduled c-section on August 12th as planned unless my BP spikes and doesn't come down or baby shows signs of stress.
Her growth scan was good- she weighed in at an estimated 5lbs 12oz at 35w4d and had plenty of fluid. Her NSTs look great as well.

So, here's hoping/praying we make it 9 more days!!

Oh booooooooooo!!!! Glad despite it all she is looking good and the NSTs and growth are all normal.

I'm rooting for you to cross the finish line on August 12th and not a day sooner!!

Booooo for preeclampsia, but awesome that you made it this far!!!! Hope you can make it to your C-section date. Are they letting you stay home or are they having you stay in the hosp?

They are letting me stay at home on modified bedrest for now (thankfully). I have a 2 year old here at home and I can't image leaving her for so long. :(
I have an appt Tuesday for NST, I'm sure if BP is up that will change things. Then I have my pre-op/last ob check on Thursday, NST Friday again and then c-section on Monday!
So, I hope we can hold on for 8 more days! My BP has been pretty good when I check it at home. Last night it was 122/72 and I don't have much swelling at all. I just had a few high readings at the Dr's office (140/100 was the highest)
I do have what I think is a UTI though and that stinks. I wonder... (and this is probably crazy) but can a UTI cause high protein levels in urine?

I think UTI can make protein levels higher, I'm not sure how high though. Good luck!!!!!
