Possible preeclampsia

So, went to my normal appointment before class last night and my blood pressure was sky high when I've consistently had normal on the low end... Plus I'm a bit swollen and gained 8 lbs in the last month. So doc is concerned. Got urine tested, and fortunately no protein, so huge plus there but I have to go back saturday to get pressure checked again (what am I, a tire?!). So we shall see. Hubby was in CA on business all day yesterday and I had had to take him to the airport at 4:30 am and was worrying about picking him up on time etc so I am hoping this was just a fluke and the other stuff is just coincidence. I can tell you one thing though, I am SO sick of hearing "we're concerned about x" every damn time I go to the doc. Early in the pregnancy I was 99% commited to only having one child. Definitely 100% now...

Ugh, I'm sorry. I hope everything turns out just fine on Sat. My fingers are crossed it was just a fluke, like you said, because of the other stresses you had going on. If it is more serious, thankfully the docs will be aware of it and can make sure you get the right care.Keep us posted!

You made me giggle about being a tire. I hope it's just normal stress that caused your BP to go up. How's the blood sugar stuff going?? There's nothing wrong with only having one-that was my plan. However,surprises happen-lol.

Sunni- blood sugar is just fine! How's yours? :) And hubby is getting clipped when he turns 30 to prevent more... Lol
I think it will end up being a fluke- that was a LONG day. I just get so frustrated by constantly hearing "maybe this is wrong" when normally, with the exception of my fibromyalgia, I am sooooo healthy! Come onnnnnn December....

Mine are good, too. I've had a few days when it was just impossible (due to lack of willpower) to follow the diet.

Looking more like preeclampsia... Went to doc again, bp still high, this time there was protein in the urine. Had to get blood drawn, and have to go back Wednesday!
Funny thing is, all this seems to be affecting hubby more than it is me. He's about to give himself a heart attack and I'm just more looking at it as another thing added on to the pile of crap that's gone haywire lol There is nothing WE can do about it really, so no sense in over-worrying.

Still, I'll be thinking of you. What are they going to have you do?

I'm sorry you're having to deal with this. I went through the same thing a couple of weeks ago and they sent me to l&d for monitoring and blood work. Everything came back fine. Hopefully you were just stressed out that day and everything will be fine on Saturday.
