Dr today, with an ultra sound!
Everything with Chloe looks amazing, yay! She’s kicking away and weighs about 2.5 lbs right now! Growing girl.
I, however, have more protein in my urine than I should (but not much). And you know what that means? I didn’t either, not till today! It means I got to take home this AWESOME 2 liter like jug that is an amazing shade of orange, and pee in it for a full 24 hours.
My Dr. didn’t tell me exactly what it could mean though, so to the Google I went! Bad idea, as always.
It could be pre eclampsia, though that has more symptoms than just the one I was showing. Most often accompanied by high blood pressure (mine was amazing today, and that is something I’m more than proud of with the amount of stress I’ve been going through! Yay nerves of steel!) Headaches (only when I succumb to the stress) Strobe light like things in my vision (nopeee) vomiting (that one is actually going away FINALLY. Screw you morning sickness.) and swelling… I did have swelling. BUT I worked a FULL 9 hour shift yesterday and was on my feet the WHOLE TIME. And then today, when I woke up, my hand was hanging off the bed having cause it to swell significantly. It’s still not down the whole way, though my other hand is normal. Ah well. I’ll just look weird with 2 different sized hands.
So, hopefully it’s nothing, and I’ll continue to drink plenty of water and lemon to help my kidneys with their job.
