Swelling at 9 weeks?

I think it's pretty sure I actually have a missed miscarriage. I went to the OB last week at what I thought was 8 weeks and we couldn't see a heartbeat. I have a follow ultrasound and labs tomorrow though to be sure. I have never had a miscarriage before. :cry: But what I'm mostly writing to ask abo...

Re: What was your experience on labetalol?

I definitely felt yuck for a while after starting labetalol. I had to adjust to the funny feeling of my BP dropping. But it also made my head feel weird and tingly as well. I did eventually adjust to it.

Re: Probably unrealistic but... vbac? Anxiety is killing me.

But after having 6 children it's not easier for me and preeclampsia has not helped that. I did actually, before I had the preeclampsia risk and chronic hypertension, decide to ...

A second pregnancy won't necessarily follow the same pattern of a previous pregnancy for good or bad. But it's great you are being followed closely. That's really important. I kn...

Re: Pregnant again

Thanks, Julie! It'll be nice to have someone else due around the same time. :) It's funny but my BP later dropped a lot after getting off here and has been around 114/80 all day. Till I came back and read a few posts on here. I think reading about hypertension and preeclampsia actually raises my BP!...

Re: Experts, I need your help.

I have a feeling it's because she's so sure she's right regardless of what you say. I mean if Dr Brewer said every single woman who ate what he suggested never got preeclampsia then it must be true! I ran into this with my first baby. I was so sure of how I was going to do everything from my planned...
