Re : Beth is back in the hospital @ 33wks

<t>Please remind your daughter gently that hospital bed rest is what is best for her and her baby.

Re : Can anyone help me figure this out??

your BP is on the high side, it's past the 140/90 mark. You need to go into L&D and have them do a 24-hour urine test to see if your kidneys are excreting any protein, and to see how the baby is doing. It's always better to be safe, than sorry. Trust your instincts.

Now that there seems to be a topic with more exposure (more "recognized" women are coming forward and sharing their stories) maybe it will be the cat...

Re : Different questions!

I think that if you're going to do a urine dip, the best time to do it would be the first urine of the day, since it is the most concentrated.

Of course 24-hour counts are more accurate, but for those of us that are paranoid, the morning urine would be your best bet.

Re : Hmm....

Labile readings can be dangerous, you might want to ask your MD to prescribe some meds for the high fluctuations, which need to be controlled.
