Results are IN

OK time to celebrate. My blood AND urine test came back all good!!!
Now we just have to keep an eye on my BP, cuz he still doesn't like it, but it's not Pre-E!!!! YAYAYYAYA!!! I'm just SO happpy about that!

35 week Checkup

Todays visit: (yeah due to BP I got a bonus visit)
35 weeks 1 day:
I assumed we'd do a quick BP check, sign consent form for surgery and leave...nope.
weight check: up a pound since last week. (yes I still love food, lol)
urine: white blood cells AGAIN meaning there is pain in my body somewhere we need to address. He is "thinking" simple UTI but I have no other symptoms of one, but I do have this weird burning deal (not sure if I mentioned it here or not, but he said he doesn't sound like a UTI)he said he'll give me a script for antibiotics and it'll help with whatever it may be, including IF it is a UTI
BP: no idea, him and Jodie (nurse) were blabbering so fast it made my head spin. He instantly ordered blood work. 3 freaking tubes, AND a 24 hour pee-catch. Yep, he thinks I have Pre-E, which is a HUGE fear of mine. I'm mad, pissed actually. I have to start it after my morning pee tomorrow, and then continue it until my morning Wed pee and bring it that morning. Yeah I have to keep a huge jug of freaking PEE in my fridge, that's just nasty. I asked for a bio-hazard bag to keep it in.
On the plus side, Sebastian found the part I put in the toilet and he rocks it as a hat!

34 Week Checkup

ok, 34 week checkup sucked. Good stuff first. My happy non-stop eating self only gained 2lbs. woot, I was shocked. I am 34weeks 2days and belly is measuring 33, so another woot!! Also her HR was 152bpm, so that was fabu as well!! Looked like it was going to be a great visit. but no.
 BP time:
154/95... damn it!! Sara was not happy. She wanted to draw blood and have me tested for preE, but wanted to try to "calm me down" first. So she had me laying on my side, taking deep breaths, etc and rechecked it. I don't know what it was cuz we got to chatting, as usual. But she said it was ok, still high but not enough to require and emergency blood draw. She checked my face/ankles/feet/hands for swelling and there was none, which is great news. I have things to look for now. Also I have to come back next week for a BP check and to talk to my OB. He was out today so no scheduling, (drat) There was talk about shots to speed up lung development and stuff in case BP doesn't stay stable and the only cure is to deliver baby, but we would needs lungs to be OK. Our goal is to keep her in these next 5 weeks though!!
