13th Prenatal Appointment

Aug 24, 2010 - 0 comments

Today was my 13th Dr appt. My blood pressure was 130/70 which is normal, and I have no protein in my urine. Had to do the group B test today, and also have to re-do my 24 hour urine test since the lab ran the wrong test on it =0(, but my blood work for pre-eclampsia came back normal =0) I'm also 2cm dilated, but 0% effaced, and baby is head down. My Dr's probably going to induce me after I hit 37 weeks, well that's what it's looking like as of right now.

12th Prenatal Appointment

Aug 17, 2010 - 0 comments

Well today was my 12th prenaal appointment. The blood in my urine is now gone =0) so I don't have to be hospialized, but I now have protein in my urine (which is a sign of pre-eclampsia) so I am on bed rest as of now and have to do a 24hr urine collection. My blood pressure was 120/70 as well. Also the test that my Dr gave me last week to check for pre-term labor came back negative. I'm just glad that my lil guy stayed put for an extra week and that I don't have to be hospitalized, hopefully next weeks results are normal =0)

Aug 09, 2010 - 3 comments

Well ladies this appointment did not go very well. I ended up in L&D Sunday night due to really bad cramps and lower pain in my lower back and was told that I had a lot of blood in my urine, and to see my Dr. today, so I went to my regular appt today and sure enough I do have blood in my urine still, my blood pressure increased to 140/80 as well =0(. I am now on antibiotics for a week to see if the blood in my urine ccan be a UTI when i go back next Tue and if I still have blood in my urine I will then be admitted into the hospital =0( I just hope that my body keeps my lil man in a lil longer. I also got checked becasue my Dr thought that my cervix was changing but nothing!!!

Dr didn't measue the baby this week, but heart beat was very strong!

10th Prenatal Appointment

Aug 03, 2010 - 0 comments

So today I had my 10th prenatal appointment. My blood pressure was 130/70 which was a little higher than what it has been lately but it's completely in the normal range =0). My Dr ordered more lab work to check for preeclampsia so I had that done. Baby's heartbeat was very strong (forgot to ask how many bpm again). I told my Dr about all of the lower back ache and pelvic pressure and pain that I have been experiencing lately and he told me that it was completely normal, that the baby was starting to make his way down, and that my ligaments are stretching and expanding, didn't get checked for dilation though.
