Lab Results

I had a doctor's appointment last week, and I also had to have blood drawn again. In case you were wondering, I have had my blood drawn approximately 763 times in the past 6 months. They also analyzed my 24 hour urine collection.

I received a call on Friday regarding the results. Apparently, everything is great. My blood pressure is within the high end of the normal range, I had no protein in my urine, my white blood cell count is normal, and my liver enzymes are no longer elevated. I am just a healthy pregnant lady! YAY!
I was kind of baffled by the liver results. Although it was never confirmed, I just assumed that I had a fatty liver. However, Dr. S thought I had some sort of infection due to my high white blood cell count. Perhaps she was right, since my liver and white blood cell count are back to normal.
Honestly, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. It just seemed like I was having too many problems, too early in the pregnancy. Now that all of the medical drama has passed, I can fully focus my attention on getting big and fat. Oreo cakesters here I come!
