Re: New and confused

I will probably try to call her again on Monday but like I said I think everything is okay since she didn't call back. I started swelling in my legs, ankles, feet, and hands. My back had been hurting pretty badly too and if that gets any worse I'm gonna call the on call line and see what they think.

Re: New and confused

I hate posting back to back like this but just wanted to update. I called my doctors office twice today and left messages but apparently she didn't find it too important to call me back so in guessing everything looked good. Next appointment is Wednesday so she will probably let me know then? Sigh.

Re: New and confused

I forgot to add that I did start to swell yesterday evening but I think it's just normal pregnancy swelling because my BP didn't really get that high. This is the first I've had swelling that noticeable though.

Re: New and confused

I had an appointment yesterday and told my OB about the heartburn and pain I've been feeling so she decided to have my repeat blood work. She hams pretty much ruled out Pre-e and thinks it's just heartburn but she said she wants to make sure everything is functioning properly including my pancreas a...

Re: New and confused

At this point switching wouldn't be an option. I'm 37 weeks today and I can only imagine the hoops I have to jump through to switch providers in time. My insurance just went through a huge switch and dealing with them as of late has been lengthy. Again thank you all for the advice, it is much apprec...

Re: New and confused

Thank you for the advice! I never got a call back and I should have called again but I thought about it and figured I will just go into L&D if I begin to feel worse. I feel as if I'm overreacting but the severity of the possible complications make me feel as if it's okay to overreact. It sucks that ...

Re: New and confused

I'm beginning to become concerned again because now I'm getting shooting pains under the right side of my ribs. It's not excruciating so I may very well be overreacting but it's definitely there. I'm going to call my doctor and hope she gets the message before closing time today. Usually when I call...

Re: New and confused

I'll be 37 weeks on Monday. I'm starting to feel completely miserable but I truly feel like I'm overreacting. Heartburn and indigestion are getting to the point where I don't even want to eat and medicine doesn't help very much and my back is killing me. Not to mention I'm exhausted all of the time....

Re: New and confused

I figured I would update here as I saw my OB yesterday. My BP has finally and miraculously gone back to normal 100's/60's. I've gotten no explanation as to why my blood pressure sky rocketed the way it did but my OB doesn't think I have preeclampsia or seem concerned at all. She didn't even remember...

Re: New and confused

I will have to ask my OB. When they took my blood pressure today it was 136/86 so they had me lay down for a but which usually helps but after a few minutes of resting it was 132/88. They didn't seem concerned though. Everything looked good on the ultrasound and the tech said the resistance was "low...
