I found out I was pregnant in March and was about 5 weeks. Since the beginning of my pregnancy I have dealt with high blood pressure in the range of 130s/80s. My husband is military and I had to move back home while he re-classes.
When I moved back home I had to make an appointment with a new regular practitioner. I brought all my records from my previous ob/gyn. When I was at that appointment my nurse and doctor were contemplating on sending me to the hospital because I was showing signs of pre-e, swelling in the legs, high blood pressure, and protein in my urine. They decided not to send me to the hospital but wanted me to get an appointment at a high risk ob/gyn asap. It was not a good appointment and I left there crying because the nurse explained to me that her SIL just lost her baby due to pre-e and not paying attention the signs...
A couple of days later I finally had my appointment with my new high risk ob/gyn. So of course I explain I have been having issues with high blood pressure. So the nurse takes my bp and it's 120/62 and no protein in the urine. My second appointment with her my bp was 120/70 and still no protein in the urine. My third appointment which was today the nurse didn't give me my numbers but told me my bp is fine and they did not say anything about my urine.
My question is has anyone else dealt with high bp in the beginning of their pregnancy and at some point have an excess amount of protein in their urine and then go to normal bp with no protein in their urine????
I'm not complaining, I'm completely ecstatic that my bp has gone down, but I'm just curious to see if anyone has any ideas on why this happened. I have not changed my diet, I am getting 8 glasses of h2o a day, same amount of exercise (if that's what you want to call it lol)....
