A couple weeks ago I ended up at the ER with a 12-hour migraine that didn't respond to 1000 mg of Tylenol. My blood pressure was over 140/90, but it decreased after laying down. My 24h protein was 277. The obgyn that saw the results sent me for a full blood panel and weekly 24h urinalyses. Blood panel was all normal (liver too), next week's 24h protein was 160, blood pressure checked twice a day averaged 140/75 with a peak at 162/95. Now this week, blood pressure is still around 140/75, protein was 280. The migraine is still in the background, but much less painful than when I ended up at the ER. Baby does great during non-stress tests and placenta blood flow is good. I'm 36w. I've also had anxiety/depression since the second trimester. No swelling at all, no weight gain (5 lbs total).
Now, my obgyn (not the one who originally ordered the labs) feels we don't need to repeat the 24h urinalysis next week, or the bloodwork. He thinks it's just pregnancy-induced hypertension rather than preeclampsia. He said we'd do another 24h only if my blood pressure goes to 160/100. Should I go ahead with this plan or push to have another 24h urinalysis done next week? Thanks.
