Re: baseline protein levels

I agree with the other poster. I'd have it checked. Unless you've just done some serious exercising or have another reason for it to be high (my doc says she sees it after falls, strenuous exercise, and surgery b/c it can just mean muscle damage) I'd have it evaluated!

Re: Labetalol, Methyldopa and Incompetent Doctors

Ditto about the labetelol. I'm on that and methyldopa and I can't wait to get off! I'm two weeks PP with twins.

Re: In Hospital and Frusterated with Dr's

My twins were delivered two weeks ago at 35w3d due to severe pre-e and HELLP. My pressures were labile but once a few hit 220/120 they delivered me immediately.

Oh I see you are delivering! Good Luck!!!! :D

Re: Pitting Oedema

I delivered twins two weeks ago due to severe pre-e and HELLP and had pitting edema. It's graded on a scale of 0 to 4+ basically the tissue is kind of boggy or is like dough and like the PP said it it's shiny and tight. When you press your finger leaves an indent. The deeper the indent and the longe...

Re: Has anyone had a different partner for the second+ pregn

Aww thanks! It is a great feeling and I want to do it again--it's addictive. I just need to convince my hubby ;)

Re: Has anyone had a different partner for the second+ pregn

I can understand your fear. I'd like to do another surrogacy but worry that I'd get pre-e and/or HELLP again. I realize the possibility is remote, especially since it would be, yet again, a new set of genes. :lol: I'm sure you'll be monitored super close and you know what symptoms to look for--which...

Re: Has anyone had a different partner for the second+ pregn

No but I had three sons with my hubby--no issues at all. Just delivered a set of twins via gestational surrogacy last week at 35w3d due to severe pre-e and mild HELLP. My OB really thinks that different maternal/paternal genes could have influenced this. She even mentioned something called "new husb...

Re: Why do i always have this feeling...please help

I have felt that each time. I have three boys ages 4, 3, and 19 months. I just delivered a set of twins via gestational surrogacy (severe pre-e and mild HELLP) and finally figured out: immediately after the delivery it's pregnancy I miss more than I want another child. I love my surrotwins but do no...

Re: Pleurisy and PE

I know this is an old thread but I delivered twins 6 days ago due to pre-e and HELLP and now have pleurisy. Wondering about the connection.

Re: Very first signs of PE

I gave birth to boy/girl twins on July 27, 2011. It was my fourth pregnancy and my other three pregnancies were without issue. This time I really just started feeling "bad" around 31 weeks. I cant quite put my finger on it--just like something wasn't right. At my OB appts my BP started creeping up f...
