Keep Gyn close. : If your BP is normal and there’s no protein in your urine, then this could be simply related to pressure upon the inferior vena cava by the enlarging uterus. That and the immobility. But just stay in close contact with your Gynecologist. Get your BP and urine checked often for the next few weeks. Try to walk around.
