Re: Baby Due in March 2013

Hi P+H, I hope the one blood pressure reading was just because of nerves / anxiety and isn't anything too serious... They will be keeping a close eye on you so hopefully things will return to normal soon. I know on monday I had my blood pressure checked by the OB and it was 120 /60... two days later...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

Hi Raposa, You were right that is the test I had. For everyone else that wanted information the test is called "uterine artery Doppler" and some information on it can be found here:

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

That may be it, they tested both sides and both were measuring 8.7 (I think)... Thank you so much for giving it a name lol most people I have spoken to have had theirs returned in the normal range. My sister was also at the same ultrasound clinic having her 20 week scan and she over heard the stenog...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

I just had my 12 week scan and was so excited. They did a test tho where they check the blood vessels in your cervix... apparently this can be used as an indicator if you will develop PE later in the pregnancy and it can back as the 95 percentile (apparently the higher the greater your chance). I am...

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

Raposa you reminded me, I was going to ask my OB if I should have a blood pressure machine at home to check it... I will have to ask at my 15 week check up.

Re: Baby Due in March 2013

Wow, I am excited that so many others are due to the same time I am and I will keep all fingers and toes crossed that we can all make it to full term without any excitement. Boring pregnancies all around I say. I have read many different theories on supplements to take to help reduce the likelihood ...

I was hoping there may be some other mums out there that are due March (Im an due 8th March) that wanted to keep in touch intermittently throughout the pregnancy. I was hos...

Re: So far so good!

Thank you for your post. I have now found out I am 6 weeks pregnant with my second baby and have been trolling the noticeboard for "happy ending stories". I am not yet terrified but think thats because I am still a long way from the 27 weeks I was when I was hospitalised for severe PE. Congratulatio...

Re: What position was your placenta in with your PE?

I was just wandering where would you find that information out? I can't recall it ever being mentioned to me. I do know however that during my 12 week ultra sound the sonograher "for practise" did an internal and knocked the placenta causing me to bleed - I have always wandered if that had anything ...

Re: Dealing with it all

Thank you so much for your response. It brought tears to my eyes but clarrified (what I knew all along) I require a new persepective. As my sister has said previously if, knowing what I know, experiencing all I have, would I go through it all again if I knew the outcome would be other child and I ha...
