Re: Delivered 10/01, lab work and symptoms worse?

When I developed pre-e with my daughter in 2012, it got worse after delivery. I delivered via emergency C-section at 36+2 and had 24 hours on mag sulf. Bloods, urine etc. all abnormal. My bp was very high prior to delivery and I was put on labetalol. Day 3 post-partum I started to feel really odd. N...

Re: Developmental Delays

How is she on her other milestones? Like speech or turning the pages of a book etc.? My daughter was born at 36+2 (so almost term) and my consultant reckoned I'd had pre-eclampsia pretty much from around 28 weeks. She'd stopped growing around 32 weeks and was a tiny 3lb 11oz at birth. With gross mot...

Re: Postpartum PIH

Well I was able to come off my medication at the end of last month! Yay! I'm keeping an eye on everything as my bp is a bit higher than it was before but it's within the normal range.

Re: Preeclampsia-free second pregnancy?

That is so good to hear! Did you do anything different in your second pregnancy? Did you have other risk factors for pree besides prior diagnosis? I am really happy for you! Hopefully your bp behaves itself soon :) Sorry I haven't replied sooner - so busy with my two little ones! I didn't do anythi...

Re: Postpartum PIH

It went well thanks. BP is good. I have to stay on nifedipine for a couple of months, reducing the dose after a month and seeing how things go. Doctor seems hopeful that I won't need long-term medication.

Re: Preeclampsia-free second pregnancy?

I had severe pre-eclampsia with my first pregnancy and had to have an emergency c-section at 36 weeks. 3 weeks ago I had my second baby. It was a really difficult decision to try for another baby as we were given a 1 in 5 risk of me developing pre-eclampsia again. I felt it was worth it though and I...

Re: Postpartum PIH

Thanks for your reply. They delivered early this time round due to the diabetes and polyhydramnios. My bp was perfect all the way through this last pregnancy, just spiked 5 days pp for some reason. They did check that it wasn't pp pre-e and it definitely wasn't, although I must admit the swelling re...

Postpartum PIH

I had pre-eclampsia with my first baby, who was delivered at 36+2. Luckily she was perfectly healthy and only had a short stay in special care. My bp took 6 months to return to normal after reaching 220/110 at one point 5 days after having her. This time round I had completely normal (in fact a bit ...

Re: What was your BP when they finally induced

My BP was 220/110 when they decided to abort the induction and do an emergency c-section instead. I have no idea what it was before then because it was all so unexpected (thought I just had a migraine, so was going into the hospital just for a check-up). It didn't settle for a number of days afterwa...

10 weeks

Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum but was desperately searching for somewhere with other mums who've gone through the same thing as me and so happy to find this place. I had severe pre-eclampsia with my first pregnancy, luckily not until around 30 weeks. It wasn't diagnosed until I was 35 weeks, so...
