Hello all you L&D girls... Im a med-surg nurse, so Im not very familiar with the pregnancy protocols... At my Belly Check yesteray, I had 2+ protein in urine... First BP check Systole was 142... don't remember the diastole reading... on recheck the Systole was 138... not sure of the diastole reading... I go back again next week for another check. Also at my previous appointment... I had 2+ protein in urine, but the BP was 118 over something... so they did not mention the protein in the urine to me.
What are the chances I will be put on bedrest? This is making me nuts, since I had been out of work 6 mos... to take care of my mom who's got Metastatic CA... and I am supposed to be starting a new job next week... I really need to work... I need benefits and I am in major debt... plus the Father went MIA... so I have no help there. I am sooo terrified for the baby's health... and also worried about my ability to provide financial support... If I go on bedrest, that means no job, no money, more debt, and no health benefits... Sorry for ranting... Im just scared... Has anyone else gone through this? Is there any chance that the doctor will allow me to continue working and not go on bedrest???
