My Baby Girl is here!

Hi, As many of you know we were planning a 39 week scheduled C/S on 7.7.11, but the past couple weeks my BP had been creeping up. My Dr. was doing PIH labs, etc almost routinely 2x per week. I finally did a 24 hr urine this weekend. My protein was only 255mg. When I went to the office on Monday my B...

Re: BP going up

So today I saw my MFM. I had a mild-mod headache all day yesterday and took tylenol 3 times before it finally went away before bedtime. I'm still only dipping trace protein but they decided to go ahead and do a 24 hr urine anyway. That way if it's above 300mg protein then I'll be considered to have ...

Re: stopping lda at 36 weeks?

My MFM said the dose was so low I could keep taking it also. I am 37 wk +2 now and nobody has mentioned stopping so I just keep taking it.

Re: BP going up

Well, my BP was better today with my increase in meds and I lost 2 lbs just "resting" so he decided that I need to be on modified bedrest and keep the baby in a bit longer. I go to see my MFM on Friday and then him again on Monday. I'm being watched closely so I am sure if my BP goes up again I'll b...

Re: BP going up

When I first consulted my MFM, he said that most likely my BP would start creeping up and chances of having a delivery around 36 weeks was fairly likely in my case. He said that at some point it becomes "too painful" to watch and they'll just deliver. At my MFM office, they have different Dr's comin...

Re: BP going up

@holly, I'm glad your sister's daughter did well. How early did they deliver? I know a lot of people have 37 weekers and they usually do well so I am probably not as concerned about the timing as some might be, but I know the March of Dimes is doing a big push for babies not to be delivered before 3...

Re: BP going up

Thanks for weighing in on the subject. I saw my Dr. today. Bp was 168/77 on 200mg labetalol BID, no protein in my urine. He did more PIH labs and bumped me to 300mg BID and told me to come back tomorrow afternoon. He said he'll call my MFM Dr. and talk about an earlier delivery. He said if my BP's d...

Re: BP going up

Do you know if it matters that I have chronic HTN and not mild PE or gestational HTN? What are the outcomes for us chronics?

BP going up

I'm 36+6 weeks today. My BP has been creeping up the past week, but I'm still not spilling any protein. My Dr. keeps worrying that I'm starting to get pre-e again but so far nothing is showing that there's any PE. I'm labelled as Chronic Hypertensive and my MFM told me that most likely my BP would c...

Re: MY 32 WEEK APPT TODAY!!

I agree with Caryn, my Doctors have both told me that it is not an option to induce post C/S so the only chance for a VBAC would be to let the pregnancy progress naturally. For me, it's too risky. I have GD, chronic HD and I'm 36.5 weeks and my BP's have been creeping up. My Dr. thinks we'll need to...
