Well, my doctor is finally taking my symptoms seriously. He was concerned about my protein increase, continued high BP (143/92 at my apt.) and headache. He took me out of work and sent me home to do another 24 hr urine, which I turned in yesterday. I had them check my BP then and it was 138/89. He wasn't so concerned about my side pains. They were pretty consistent through the weekend even waking me up at night which concerned me, but I have not been bothered by them for the past two days. It seems to flare up, not sure if its related to when my BP spikes. I am scheduled for a growth scan and another follow-up next Thursday. I am a bit nervous about it. I have been complaining for a while that I don't think this baby is active enough. I am 28 weeks and have not had those movements that make your belly roll, just some weak kicks and hiccups. Some days i hardly feel any movement at all. I feel like i am just waiting for bad news, as bad as that sounds. I still just have that gut feeling something is wrong.
