Re : 11wks pregnant and no heartbeat

<t>It sounds to me like you're miscarrying naturally- my doctor told me that if you soak a maxipad within 2 hrs you should go in to emerg as it could be hemorraging - if you are starting to pass mucous and tissue, it's the miscarriage beginning- personally, if you're concerned about the amount of bl...

Re : Protein in urine +3, bp up but not too high - PE?

<t>Just another update- still not sure what's going on. I'm about 33 weeks now, and my dipstick tests are still at 3+, BP still 130/80, sometimes 120/75. My OB has ordered a serum creatinine to look for kidney damage, but doesn't seem to be concerned about PE at all- she joked that worst case I'd ne...

Re : 11wks pregnant and no heartbeat

<t>Also, in our family, the 2 babies we miscarried are still very much a part of our family. We buried the remains at a cemetary in a little ceremony, we named the babies, and we talk about them all the time. We can't wait to meet them one day in heaven. I find that really helped my other children d...

Re : 11wks pregnant and no heartbeat

<t>I am so sorry for your loss. I lost 2 babies in similar miscarraiges in the last 2 years, and just wanted to let you know to prepare yourself as best as you can emotionally for the end of the pregnancy (by D&C or natural). My endocrinologist told me that our progesterone levels are very high ...

Re : Protein in urine +3, bp up but not too high - PE?

<t>Just a follow up on my results - my 24 hr urine was 110 (which I'm assuming is good since the receptionist called it normal) and my BP is at 130/81. I'll see the OB next week. I'm still hoping I'm making more of this than I should be, but keeping an eye on things more carefully than I was before....

Re : Protein in urine +3, bp up but not too high - PE?

Just got a call from the OB's office - 24 hour test came back 'normal'! So- I have no idea why I had 2 tests at 3+ before and now 'normal', but it's good news and I'll take it. I go see her again next week.

Re : Protein in urine +3, bp up but not too high - PE?

<t>Thank you so much for your replies. I am hoping to get the test results late today or tomorrow.<br/> <br/> I have never had any complications like this before ( 4 easy pregnancies and 2 miscarriages), so it all seems a bit unreal.<br/> <br/> I thought something might be up when after she explaine...

Protein in urine +3, bp up but not too high - PE?

<t>I am 30 weeks along with #5 and at my last dr. appt, she told me that the urine test at my last 2 visits was +3. I just did a 24 hr urine and creatinine clearance ( results not back yet).<br/> <br/> My BP is usually REALLY low, normal for me is 90/60. The last 2 visits it's been up around 120/70,...
