ok I went to the perinatalogist today. I was there for almost 3 hours but here's what happened and what is going to happen next.

BP was slightly elevated when I got there, 135/85 or so

Urine was clean, no protein

gained about 2 more pounds, putting me at 11.5lbs total

retook BP after sitting for about 15 minutes, 117/74

had an NST, was supposed to be 15 minutes or so, but they wanted baby's resting heartrate and he wouldn't quit jumping around, so after 45 minutes of that, they said good enough

u/s to check fluid levels, all good there, and baby is definitely head down very low

ok, so now I am doing a 24 hour urine on Sunday, turning that in on Monday and having my labs drawn when I turn that in. I have my already scheduled u/s on Wedneday, so they added a consult to that so we can go over all my results and decide what to do from there.

I talked to my midwife after my appt. If it turns out to NOT be Pre E and my labs come back normal, I should be able to continue with my homebirth plans. If it IS Pre E, I will be transferring to an OB and hoping for a hospital VBAC.

So now we wait.
