Blood pressure was 133/80 so they didn't think it was blood pressure related. I'm getting better at monitoring it at home and it hasn't gone over the 140/90 range yet...

My 24 hour protein results came back at 171 mg over 24 hours so thankfully not preeclampsia yet. I am hoping it doesn't develop at all but relieved I am not looking at delivering a 28 week baby and she can keep growing
