Re: Anyone have another child after having HELLP?

Hi Whitney, I didn't have hellp but had serious pe with my first (mild w/ my 2nd). About 5 years after I had my daughter, I had some heart issues & they did a stress echo. They found I had a slightly enlarged right ventricle but couldn't figure out why. I always wondered if my pe had something to do...

Re: Responding to people downplaying PE

As a 2x PE survivor, that last "tip" does seem a bit offensive. I don't think that was the intent but perhaps some women out there have experienced an over eager doctor who was more concerned with his/her own convenience rather than patient need. I had 2 different doctors for each of my previous pre...

Re: Early pre-e or something else?

Thanks Julija. I read that post & feel that is not what I am experiencing. I don't know what's going on with my crazy pregnant body right now but I'm glad I got the bloodwork yesterday and will be seeing my dr soon. Hopefully whatever it is, it will be nothing serious. I hate pre-e. I hated being on...

Re: Early pre-e or something else?

I did get labs done this morning which included a cbc. Wouldn't that show if HELLP was developing? Or is there some other test I should ask for? I know that if the tests come back with bad results, the doctor's office will call. I don't know much about HELLP but I'll look it up. The only thing I kne...

Re: Pre-eclampsia at 25 weeks, need advice

I'm a little late to the conversation but just wanted to give you some encouragement. I was diagnosed w/ pre-e at 27 wks & put on bed rest at home. This was back in 2000 & I didn't have much info or understanding about pre-e but my dr still kept a good eye on us. Although my baby was small at birth,...

Re: Early pre-e or something else?

Oh I forgot to mention I've also had sharp pinching pain in my right shoulder. Sometimes it feels like it's stabbing from front to back & other times feels like someone is pinching my collar bone on the right side REALLY hard. It doesn't feel like muscle pain & nothing I do seems to help it go away....

Early pre-e or something else?

Hi everyone, I am 22 wks w/ #3 & had pre-e with my first 2 pregnancies. Thankfully, I ultimately had good outcomes with both my children as they are both healthy and thriving now. I know each pregnancy is different but #3 has been totally different from my others. I spent my first trimester with alm...
