I went back to the doctor today, they wanted to see me after the weekend. Unfortunately my BP is not behaving itself....the first time they checked it was like 150/90 and it didn't go down very much when I was laying down during the NST.

I saw a different doctor than I usually do, and he told me my 24 hour urine test came back "within the normal limits for pregnancy" apparently you are allowed to have a little bit more when you are pregnant....whatever.
Also I cannot go back to work (I asked) and I have to go weekly for NSTs and they're going to check my pee every time with the little dip thingies. He said I would periodically be doing 24 hours, and then I have an u/s in a week and another one in 4 weeks.

But he also mentioned my labs (from the bloodwork I got done last week) and he started talking about all these tests for LUPUS that I had done....I was like are you sure that was my chart? So he checked and yep, sure enough it was me. I don't know what my other doctor was up to because he never told me he was getting me checked for Lupus, and I have no idea why he would do that. I was talking to one of my friends about it because I was like, wouldn't I know by NOW if I had something like that? And she said she had a friend who found out while she was pregnant that she had it, and she had a lot of complications during her pregnancy because of it.

So I really wish they would actually talk to me and tell me what is going on instead of just running all these tests without my knowledge.

Uh, yeah. Why wouldn't he have told you he was going to screen for something like that? I think it's disrespectful that he wouldn't so much as give you a heads up - this is your health, your body, and your baby after all.

So did the Lupus screen come back ok? What did he say about that??

Thanks ladies

Kate- it hasn't come back yet, they said it takes about a week so I'm assuming it will be back later this week since I had it done on Thursday. I probably won't even know until Monday when I go back for my next NST, because they never call me with results or anything

It's crazy that your other doc did not tell you about this earlier. I would be a bit ticked off too!!

Thank you Helen for my beautiful siggy!
