Thank you for those links! That's what I was trying to find. I knew I had seen similar things (or those things) before but I couldn't locate them.
I was a little surprised about not doing the 24 hour urine, too. When I asked, my OB said the creatine ratio done earlier that day was fine. I'll ask about it again on Monday.
Even if my BP is ok, it's only ok on meds so that's still technically hypertension right? Especially with the lung steroids now in place, and that I'm reasonably far along, and my history, I really can't think of a reason to stay pregnant past 37w. Hopefully my OB agrees, and hopefully my body will be favorable for induction.
DS born Dec. 2008 at 38.5w gestation. Mild PE diagnosed 3 hours before he was born
DD born Dec. 2010 at 40w1d. BP was slightly elevated since 37w, and climbed while in labor (started on my own). Severe PE diagnosed hours after DD born.
DD born Sept. 2013 at 38w. Induced (and I had to fight for it!) due to high blood pressure. No protein, but had brisk reflexes and clonus after delivery. Doc gave me a mild preeclampsia diagnosis anyway and said I'm likely to be a chronic hypertensive later in life.
