Had my 37 week appt. Not the worse, but not the best either. I'm measuring on time and haven't dilated at all.

I was positive for GBS. Sigh
Blood pressure was 130/90, I didn't think it was too bad, esp when I told the doctor that I had been stressing about my best friend, who had to go to the hospital two nights ago for preeclampsia. But the dr. was being cautious and wanted me to take the 24 urine test. I have to carry around that jug and fill it with urine and put it in the refrigerator. That's nasty.
At the end of the appt he wanted to take my blood pressure again. 140/90. Sigh. I just think he worried me during the appt and that's why it went up.

I have to go back on Wednesday to return the urine and hopefully get my results soon.

Yuck. I would wait till you feel relaxed and check it at a grocery store or pharmacy. "White coat syndrome" is real, but that bp does sound a little high. Have fun w your jug o pee!

My BP is up too, and I had +1 protein in my urine. My doctor didn't have me do a 24 collection and it really worries me! Better safe than sorry. Pre-eclampsia is not a thing to be messed with. Good luck to you !!!

I've had to do a 24 hour urine this time too. My urine check in the office had protein in it BUT the 24 urine was okay. I hope yours it too!

Sorry it wasn't a great appt. I hope your urine test comes back good.

I had to do the 24 hour protein at the beginning of the pregnancy and I hated it! I agree, why does it have to be BRIGHT orange?? lol

Good luck!
