high BP episodes?

Hey girls. I just need some help from those of you with BP home monitors. I got a reading of like 120/92 about 1.5hrs ago. I can probably count less than a dozen times I've gotten this reading and probably a total of 4 times the diastolic has reached 94. Usually when it happens i wait 10 minutes tes...

Re: 20 weeks and getting nervous

That's a shame. All the midwives at the hospital were always very particular about taking my BP. If it was high they'd get me to lie down, take it twice and whisper "stop talking" lol if I was talking while they measured it. Sometimes when they'd take it they would frown and re-pump up the cuff. I'd...

Re: Abnormal Case of Pre-e? No symptoms.

I had pregnancy induced hypertension (not PE) at 29 weeks and had zero symptoms. I then was diagnosed with PE at 32weeks because of protein in my urine and the continuation of high BP and still not symptoms for the next 1.5weeks I had my meds doubled then tripled then maxed out so was out in new med...

Re: spot urine PCR test

I didn't realise i never updated this thread. On the 20th the doctors decided after all of my meds being constantly raised and having no effect on my BP and having my BP consistently hit readings like 165/112 they decided enough was enough and it's too dangerous for my wellbeing to keep me pregnant ...

Re: spot urine PCR test

Ok so an update, sorry if it's out of context a bit, it's a summary I sent a friend and have copy pasted here. What an effing rollercoaster I finally had a doctor who has seen me before and who I know isnt an idiot. She said my initial spot urine test that gave me a reading of 0.06 and I was told a ...

Re: spot urine PCR test

For those following my story..... My BP shot up and I was admitted to hospital for a med review and so a urine test on Tuesday showed I had .06 protein which is the equivalent of 600 in the 24hrs test I was put back in hospital Friday because my BP had shot up again so I completed a 12hrs urine test...

Re: spot urine PCR test

Thanks for the info!! Very helpful. I've noticed my urine yesterday and today has been crazy concentrated. I could definitely be drinking more water but it's still pretty concentrated for the length of time between pees and the amount I am drinking. Should I ask them to retest my urine? In case it's...

Re: spot urine PCR test

Yeah I asked the midwife today about the reading she said it does mean 600 in the readings that I read online. I have read a lot of posts from women who say they're readings are like 280, 250 and it's difficult to get a PE diagnosis so I thought 600 sounded crazy high. But when I talked to the midwi...
