Re: Urine testing at home?

I'm sorry your doctor seems to take your concerns lightly. If I were you, I would call and request a 24-hour urine collection.

Expecting #3

Well, I just found out that I'm pregnant with # 3. Feeling excited and terrified, lol Had pre-e with both of my other two, induced at 34 weeks. Not sure what to expect with this pregnancy. I do have a question if anybody knows: With both of my other pregnancies, all of my dip sticks and the protein/...

Had my 2nd pre-e baby!

Lillian Ada was born on Dec. 28 weighing 5#9oz. I was induced and she was born at the same gestational age as her big brother: 34+2 and also weighing the same as he did! She is in the NICU but is doing great. I'll post more details about my experience later, as I found that reading the experiences o...

Re: Im new here and just looking for some help.

Have you taken your BP? You could stop by a drug store and use the ones they have near the pharmacy. They're not 100% accurate, but can give you a general idea.

Re: Does this BP make sense?

Good idea. They are rechargeable batteries so I'll take them out and charge.

Does this BP make sense?

I just started taking Labetalol. Started with 200 mg a day then it was increased to 400 mg a day. I had labs and a 24 hour urine all come back good about a week or so ago. Anyway, I was feeling crappy so I took my BP and got 126/103. A few minutes later I took it in my right arm and got 156/80. I wa...
