I wanted to give an update, I went to the doctor on Friday and of course my blood pressure was still crazy even with being on medication now. I completed my 24 hour urine and the results were not good. The doctor advised me to complete another one, which I am use to doing by now. However, the part that put my doctor over the edge was that when I went and left a sample it ws at +3 for protein by itself. With that being said he sent me to a Nephrologists. Most importantly the babies are doing great.
Sorry the results were not good. Glad babies are doing well.

I'm glad to hear the babies are doing good...that's got to be reassuring!
I'm glad you are taking it easy. Remember, the housework isn't going anywhere! So, do what you can, but you're growing little ones, which is so much more important! I'll be praying for you...I'm not exactly sure what protein in the urine means, but obviously it doesn't sound like it's a good thing.
Glad babies are doing fine but sorry to hear about the BP and protein issues. Hope it gets resolved asap. I agree, in the meantime try to stay positive! Lots of hugs!
Jessica - protein in the urine can be indicative of a kidney infection, or later on in pregnancy it can be a symptom of pre-e both of which are highly manageable with good medical care and it really sounds like her OB is totally on-top of it!
