Post Had to go back to the dr....update.

I ended up back at the dr. office today around 2:30 due to more blurry vision. I am supposed to be on complete bed rest but I had to get up for a back and legs are killing me.

He already had some of my blood work back today...My protein level in my blood is TERRIBLE...It's supposed to be no lower than 3.2 and mine was like 2.1...and my liver is very very slightly damaged.

One thing though...when I went back this evening my blood pressure had dropped from 130/100 to 130/90 but the dr. still seems to think that it's not really going to go back to normal. He said that once it starts to rise it normally doesn't go back down this late in pregnancy.

I am going to have another non-stress test tomorrow to check on Trevor...(He was very reactive today...which is excellent)...I guess I will know tomorrow exactly what the dr. wants to do.

I hope you all are doing well and I thank you all so much for the well wishes.

Lots of Love,

Sponsors Lightbulb

I think you should be induced. YOur symtoms sound pretty severe. I think you are due 9/19/03, right? That's only 2 weeks early. I had thoses symtoms but no liver damage and my doctor said the baby would be safer outside my body than in at this time.
Good luck.
