Not what we wanted to hear... *Updated*

Well, apparently my doc appt went so well because we didn't have any test results back yet to talk about.

Glucose Test My sugar level came back high. I was too shocked and forgot to ask what the number was. At any rate, I have to go to have a 3 hour lab done tomorrow. I had this done with Tyler and it came back normal so we're praying that will happen again.

24 Hour Urine for April I do a 24 hour urine same once per month so they have something to compare to in case we were to see preeclampsia come on. My protein level for March was 94 and this month it was 240! Needless to say that is a jump and since my blood pressure has been good they are apparently not sure what is going on. So I am seeing a kidney doctor some time soon. I am on a waiting list because when I tried to make an appointment the soonest they could get me in was May 28th! I told the receptionist between my sobs, "That is unacceptable!" She said she would let the nurses know and they will fit me in the schedule. I was so blindsided that I didn't even ask what kind of tests they will be doing, so I am going to call back today to get some more answers.

I was, with reason, very upset yesterday...the protein issues didn't start happening with my pregnancy with Tyler until 35 weeks. And then I had him 3 days later. I'm praying we don't have to have this baby now...it is just too soon. :-(

I'll update again when I have more info...

Update: Kidney doc appt May 6th at 3:00. I don't need to be on bed rest or anything until then. The nurse just reiterated we need to find out why my kidneys are spilling protein since my blood pressure has been so good. As for the what they will be doing, we're not really sure yet other than more blood work.
