pre-e and protein question...

i was diagnosed with pre-e tuesday. ive been in the hospital since then. theyve done 2 protein studies. the first time it was 2045. the second time 2350. so its going up. while im laying down, my bp is normal. when im sitting up, it creeps up. when im active, its 170/100. sooo im on bedrest. no showers. no salt diet. they wont let me see jade. i have a lot of headaches but that could be bc of the fact im not allowed home. :[

they said they want to keep me till at least monday. they want to do ANOTHER 24hr urine study to see if my protein will decrease. so im wondering, has anyone with pre-e had their protein decrease? to me, it seems like with my protein so high (+800 is when they diagnose with moderate pre-e), the liklihood of my protein going down is unlikely.

im 36 weeks by their records, im 37 by my dates. i want to ask them if at 37 they'll induce bc staying here is just as stressful.
