    Absolutely right. I just wish I could feel bubba so I had that knowledge that he/she is still in there rolling around!

    Hey degrassi, thanks for asking!

    Saw the specialist today who was was not concerned at all. Said it was just a precaution but they don't need to see me in that clinic again unless my BP gets high.

    They just said we will pay attention to BP at every appointment, but I don't need to change what I'm doing for now. Yay!

    I am going to eat as well as I can to help keep it at bay, but she said it's not a worry, and I probably wouldn't have even been told but the hosp are doing a clinical trial in early detection methods so that's probably why it did get mentioned at all.

    Glad to hear there is no cause for immediate concern - what a relief for you!

    Sounds like you have a good medical team looking out for you

    From memory I think it had something to do with the body breaking down protein if your not consuming enough during pregnancy ( protein in urine I think is a sign of pre eclampsia?)

    i just wrote a big post and lost it.. wahh!

    umm.. so in short lol, Hi Rainbow LOL
    I had high BP with DS1 from around 20 weeks. They checked my BP and urine at every appt and it was borderline ok. I begged for a growth scan because I was pretty overweight back then and finally at almost 37 wks I got one. He was small and I was induced a day later, at exactly 37 weeks. DS1 was born healthy but tiny, just over 2 kilos. He is a thriving 90% 3 yo today! PE is NOT just diagnosed from the protein in urine, it is having two of the symptoms that diagnoses you, for eg, I had high BP and a baby born with IUGR, small for dates. According to my OB that means I had PE. I was nervous with DS2 because of this because I still had high bp (medicated) from my first pregnancy. It is worth noting however that it is hereditory in my family and sometimes, NOTHING you do with lower BP aside from medication- I should know. I lost substansial weight, exercised etc. Nothing. So with DS2 I was watched closely by my OB. I had my first growth scan at 28 weeks. Size was average but there was blood flow cord issues, he wasnt getting enough oxygen which could be due to high bp/pe. I was scanned twice a week for the duration of my pregnancy. My OB explained that at the first sign of distress they would deliver. I was induced at 38 weeks, only because I begged, I was sick of being pregnant. The scans twice weekly had been good, a little bit of blood flow restriction but not too bad. DS2 was born healthy at 3.2 kilos. (BOY did I feel the extra kilo!! LOL) They did not diagnose me for PE that time. So dont stress, sounds like your carers are all over it, dont be scared to ask them questions as well- I was always asking my OB for his "plan of attack"LOL

    Thank you for your story hopefulmum2be!

    So good that you have two healthy boys now

    My mil has a BP machine which I will use when I visit to keep an eye on my BP I think

    It's all about a plan if attack hey? I like knowing what's going to happen if something goes pear shaped!
