Preeclampsia ?

Kaitlyn • Wife. Momma. Nurse.

Sunday my legs and feet were really swollen and bp was elevated at about 144/92. I had an appt Tuesday where my bp was fine and they drew some labs. Today I went in and had a NST. The baby was fine on the monitor. My bp was fine. My kidney and liver tests came back fine but the test for protein in urine showed over the mark so she’s concerned I’m developing preeclampsia and told me to start thinking about delivery after 37 weeks. And she doesn’t really want me to go back to work unless I can do a sitting position. Has anyone experienced this before? Elevated protein in urine but bps have mostly been normal? And yes I still swell really bad in my legs and feet if I’m walking around at all.
