<t>I just wanted to stop by and thank you all so much for your support during my pregnancy - and also to announce that Teighan Matthew is here!!<br/> <br/> He arrived on December 28 at 38wks 1day after an induction.

Re : BP decrease with increased proteinuria?

<t>I passed my GTT with flying colours - aside from the dating scan, where he was only two days ahead of what my charting ovulation date would have put him at, this baby has always measured big. Then again, I'm 6', my husband is 6'3, and we both come from families that throw big babies without other...

Re : BP decrease with increased proteinuria?

<t>I'm 32 weeks - I did have a dip in BP around 16-20 weeks where it went down to around 100/70 from my pre-pregnancy normal of 110-120/70, and then at 26 weeks it started the climb; that's where I started getting the increasingly high "normal"s and the occasional 160/100-type spikes. By last week m...

BP decrease with increased proteinuria?

<t>I'm very confused again - this is beginning to feel like a constant state!<br/> <br/> During my last trip to the hospital they found trace amounts of protein, and at my last doctor's appointment I was at +1 for protein. <br/> <br/> I've been keeping my BPs in check by self-restricting myself, and...

Re : How bubbly is bubbly?

<t>I've got an itty-bitty update, I suppose...<br/> <br/> Went for my appt today, and also had an ultrasound. Baby is measuring 37 weeks by ultrasound (we're 31wks 4days today) and is looking wonderful. Weight estimate was just shy of 5 1/2 lbs. <br/> <br/> I'm spilling protein (guess that explains ...

Re : How bubbly is bubbly?

<t>I'm just shy of 32 weeks now - and I think I can say quite safely that around my house, if I haven't cleaned the toilet, it hasn't been cleaned! Plus, this has been happening everywhere - home, work, wal-mart... ect. <br/> <br/> Hopefully this doctor's appointment will be less rushed, and I'll ha...

Re : How bubbly is bubbly?

<t>I've been told that the dipsticks at the doctor's office are all "fine", which I take to mean not showing any protein. The most recent one at the hospital showed trace.<br/> <br/> However, I drink 100+oz of water a day, so my urine tends to be really diluted - I'd imagine that can affect dipstick...

How bubbly is bubbly?

<t>I've heard about bubbly urine being a possible sign of proteinuria. <br/> <br/> I've been trying to just lay low and not let myself get stressed this last week - my BP's have been right around 140/90 (with one exception of 159/95), and I've been feeling fairly good, so I've been trying to just le...

Still No Answers

<t>My blood pressure first thing in the morning yesterday (after taking a shower and getting dressed, then sitting down for about 20min) was 169/95. I relaxed for another 15 minutes and took it again and it went down to 155/92, so I went to work as it had gone down. Took it again after about an hour...
