So.. my baby was born Thursday, May 7 at 36 weeks. Bloodwork had been coming back elevated and also the protein. Doc said it's best to get baby out, so we did via csection. We are both doing great. She weighed 5 lbs 11 ozs and is just beautiful. No NICU time was needed thank goodness. We are home and doing very well!! Thanks to all of you for your support, it is so appreciated.

Yes, the blood test results are good, and your protein level, while preeclamptic, is still relatively low.

I hope the meds will keep your pressures okay now, and you can continue with this pregnancy monitored but with stable symptoms!

I got this weeks blood work and protein results and apparently they are normal. Doc told me he doesn't consider me to be very preeclamptic and he's not concerned. He looks more at the uric acid.
Last Week This Week
platelets 344 334
uric 4.4 4.6
liver enzymes AST15 ALT14 said normal
protein 328 363

bp today: 147/88 139/85
