My test results came back yesterday from my 24 hour urine. It was not exactly what I wanted to hear. My urine showed elevated protein levels so I was put on twice daily blood pressure medicine which I started last night. I will have another 24 hour urine in 1 month.
They will be monitoring me very closely & told me to lay down with my feet up or on my left side as much as possible & not get stressed (HA HA HA with 6 young kids & a hubby that is gone 2 weeks a month, it won't happen often). I also have a lot of swelling (can't wear my wedding ring).
The good news is that she said it is doing more harm to me & hardly any to the baby at this point. I go in Thursday to see my doctor & hopefully will get more answers then & be reassured by hearing the baby's heart beat.
I am comforted by knowing that God is holding both of us in his palm...
