Thanks for the thoughts/suggestions Bobcat! The MD's now officially have me on bed rest (but can still do a few basic things) so I'm hardly on my feet at all anymore. It does seem to be helping with my bp. Even though things "seem" to be going a little better now, I still have this stupid pre-eclampsia diagnosis and they WILL be inducing me sometime between week 37 and 38 (I'm 34 weeks now), when I'm considered "full term". I can't get out of it or change their minds. They say that I'll have a better chance at having a more natural birth this way since I'll hopefully be avoiding complications with the pre-e. And they insist that once you develop pre-e in a pregnancy, it doesn't go away. Unfortunately, they found a lot of protein in my last 24 hr urine collection and are certain that things can only get worse, no matter how much my bp numbers improve. I think they're just being overly cautious to avoid any possible malpractice lawsuits, but then I've also heard that pre-e isn't something to mess with, so I guess I've resigned myself to the fact that this isn't going the be the best pregnancy and birth but that I should have a healthy baby girl in my arms soon!
I would like to hear more about your experience following WAPF. I have personally given up on trying to get that much fat in my diet. My focus has been protein lately, in a half-assed attempt at following the Brewers Diet. And thanks for the suggestion about the dairy, but we only drink raw goats milk here (since we have our own goats) and it doesn't seem to cause mucus problems for me. I could see how grocery store milk could, though, and could lead to those problems w/sleep and bp.
