I assume your OB is working with Dr. E to develop a treatment and monitoring plan. I was in a similar situation (high bp early in the second trimester, treated with atenolol at the UW), and in addition to the cardiac output monitoring, they did more 24-hr urine tests and baby ultrasounds. They'll probably want you to do a 24-hr urine the week before your next UW appointment, if not sooner.

Joy,
Let me just say that you are in very good hands with Dr. Easterling!!! You are so lucky to live near UW, I am jealous.
Take care,

Hi - I have been posting on the Ask the Experts forum, but this may be a more appropriate place for me. I ended up with severe pre-e during my first pregnancy - it hit at 37 1/2 weeks and I delivered the next day a perfectly healthy baby. I started researching pre-e a few months later and came upon this foundation. I am not 23 weeks with my next baby. Today I went to the University of Washington Hypertensive clinic because my bp's had started going up around my 16 week appointment. It was determined that my pulse was way too high - 115 at the appointment and I was put on Atenol. Dr. Easterling (the doctor I met with - he is on the board of this foundation) said that with a pulse like that my bp's could raise suddenly. He also mentioned that my kidny function was compromised - which would be common with a pulse like mine and I had a trace of protein in my urine. It feels good to have great medical care. I will be around here lots as I learn so much from you ladies. Had anyone else been put on Atenol at around 23 weeks (which I am)? What type of care did you get from your OB after that? I know that I will go back to the UW in 7 weeks and have an ultrasound close to that, but anything else???
