Re: Had my Baby!!! BP is Worrying Me However. Opinions Wante

Thanks for all the input. Unfortunately, the doctor at my OB practice just started the day before I delivered my baby and replaced the only OB I had seen the whole pregnancy. She has seen my BP for the past 2 days and says It's nothing to worry about. She just brushes it off completely. She says it'...

Re: protein dip sticks.. Photo Added*

Heya! Did you happen to have any clumps of vaginal discharge floating around in your urine? Or was it particularly concentrated? When I had some clumps of excretions floating in my urine towards the end, I always had the streaks. Your vaginal excretions will make you positive for protein. To a certa...

Had my Baby!!! BP is Worrying Me However. Opinions Wanted!

Hello ladies! I went to my appointment on Tuesday for my 39 week, and all of a sudden I was told my amniotic fluid was low (6.1) and we were having the baby via c-section on Wednesday. The section went AMAZINGLY well because I stood firm and demanded medication to help me stay calm. I finally had an...

Positive Dipstick Protein Reading- False??

Today at home I had my first positive protein reading on my dipstick. It went to a +1 reading meaning 30 mg in the cup. I know they're very unreliable, so I wasn't panicking. I'm 38 weeks 4 days currently, and I've had preeclampsia twice. I'm hoping to make it to the end with no problems. My questio...

Odd Blood Pressures

Heya everyone. I'm currently 38 weeks today and am still sitting at home doing combo fermenting baby/waiting for PreE to strike! This is the farthest I've ever made it. This is my third pregnancy with my previous two resulting in PreE. I just wanted to ask a quick question to get some opinions on my...

Re: 50 years old

Just wanted to chime in and say that I had my first child 9 years ago, with PreE and had another just last year with it as well, and in the 8 years between them the advances in medicine for dealing with PreE were astonishing. I can only imagine how different things are from 20 years ago to today! Te...

Re: Right Shoulder Pain - What does it feel like?

Hello again, hope that BP is behaving itself! The shoulder pain.. ick. Been there before. The upper right quadrant pain is normally the typical pain associated with the loveliness that comes with PreE and HELLP. It feels like a sharp, often burning pain that doubles you over. No amount of position c...

Re: PE - 34WK + 2 - Checking BP at home

Just wanted to chime in and say that I know preeclampsia is no joke, and should be taken VERY seriously (I've had it twice already myself). That being said, for the entirety of this pregnancy, my BP was typically through the roof from the sheer anxiety of being worried about it being high. At home, ...

Re: Upper Rigth Quadrant Pain Question

I'm thinking it's probably just from being in an odd position during sleep, perhaps. The reason I fear HELLP is because I had it with my first pregnancy. With my second, I narrowly avoided it and just had Preeclampsia. So now, of course, I'm just sitting here waiting for the worst to happen. I'm not...

Upper Rigth Quadrant Pain Question

Hello all, Today around the time that my 24 hour protein check was almost complete I started having some sharp pains on my right side. Nothing strong enough to make me bend over in pain. The location that hurts off and on in directly under my right breast towards my side. It feels like it's my ribs ...
