Re : New Here....need support

<t>I just posted a new message with an update to what happened after this posting. I just wanted to thank each of you for responding to me. Without this forum, I don't think I would have been remotely educated as I was about this disease. It was because of you all that I kept on insisting that somet...

I apologize for not writing sooner..but, here is

<t>what happened. I wrote this board about 2 1/2 months ago. I sincerely apologize that I did not update anyone as to what happened.

Re : New Here....need support

<t>I know what my last 24 hr was that they did in the hospital, it was 297....which barely meets mild preeclampsia. But, the nurse told me that the other two were high, which I didn't ask how much. I assume that they went down because I was flat on my back in the hospital and not moving at all. My h...

Re : New Here....need support

<t>The hard part about this is...most of the high readings are when I take them at home. I have a home monitor. I am supposed to keep track of them.

<t>I was diagnosed with mild preeclampsia about a week and a half ago. I was put on strict bed rest, told not to drive..etc. I was given steroid injections in case the baby came early. I have been struggling with high blood pressures at home, having protein in my urine and severe headaches. I went i...
