maybe they'll give us our own special parking spot soon

The Day Assessment Unit at our hospital just rang to tell me that my 24 hour pee in a jug-a-thon results came back, and my protein levels are slightly elevated. This means I have to go back into the hospital again on Friday where there will be undoubtedly more pee collection (I'm starting to wonder if they have found a way to make money off of my urine and this is why they keep asking me for samples) and another blood test. My blood pressure has been fine and I've got no other symptoms of pre-eclampsia, so I consider this to be much ado about nothing. The DAU lady said that they were just being cautious because I'm so close to my due date, but it didn't seem like there was anything to worry about. Feh.

The one amusing thing about this is we have another chance to meet The Mysterious Mr. Lim. He is the consultant who we were supposed to see last week and are scheduled to meet on Friday, but the last time we were there, the nice Spanish doctor lady met with us instead. Although we did hear a male voice on the other side of a curtain at one point, we never did see Mr. Lim. His name appears on my file and even my big pee container had his name scrawled on the label, but he remains a mystery. It's very Wizard of Oz.

Off to the midwife soon to once again pee into a little container, get my blood pressure taken, and see if Pip's head has moved further along since last week. I'm telling you, my days are just packed with thrills like this.
