Atypical Preeclampsia? :(
Ugh....so at my appt on Tuesday my OB was a bit concerned because I had protein in my urine. He ran some blood work and checked for UTI (negative) and told me to come back today.
My DH and I didn't think too much of it, but today he said I have a "lot" of protein in my urine, but my BP remains its usual low (110/70).
I am however, taking Procardia for my constant contractions, which could be lowering my BP.
He considered hospitalization (AAAAAAHHHH) but instead did an NST and is bumping up my MFM appt to tomorrow. Plus, I am getting to do the 24 hour urine test. What a *joy*.
Help ladies!!! I am not ready. OB was trying to be reassuring that the babies would be ok if he needs to deliver them, but I so wanted to make it to 35/36 weeks minimum. Obviously, the health of babies and me is the most important....he reminded me my age is a factor as well.
My poor DH. His father died somewhat unexpectedly on Monday so he is still very distraught over that and now this.
Wish me luck!!! OB says at best he will be monitoring me very closely--worse---hospital--or deliver LO's.:eek: I am SO NOT READY!!!!
