Re: Has anyone had 2 pregnancies with pe and a third without

Not me. :( I had PTL at 31 weeks and then PE diagnosed at exactly 37 weeks and induced the same day w/my first. My 2nd I was on modified bedrest because of high BP from about 32-38 weeks and induced at 38 weeks. But my BP returned to normal after both and I was never on BP meds. My first 2 are 17 mo...

Re: Weekend in the hospital

Sorry to hear you had to spend the weekend in the hospital! How often will you be having appts now? Are they going to start NSTs and/or BPP and U/S? Are you monitoring your BP at home and doing kick counts? I hope it was just a small blip & that you have many, many weeks more of baby baking time! Ha...

Re: New and need reassurance regarding my vision

Welcome! I am so sorry to hear that you had such a rough start but so thankful to hear that you and baby are home and doing well. I'm glad you have an appt. with an opthamologist because that's what I would have suggested. It's only been a month so I'm sure your body is still recovering from the tra...

Re: Bed rest with toddlers ideas

LOT OF TV/MOVIES! They will survive. LOL! My oldest was not quite 4 and my other was 2.5 (and not PT yet) when I started bedrest with #3. Have easily accessible snacks that the 4 year old can get (maybe up on the counter & have a small step stool so the dogs can't reach it) and let your husband worr...

Re: What bp is right?

Welcome! A cold could certainly cause your BP to go up a little as could meds you might be taking (like Sudafed). BP can vary by 10-15 points throughout the day and that's perfectly normal. Since your BP at night isn't much out of that range from your morning BP I wouldn't be too concerned - but I'm...

Re: Here we go again!

Congrats! I know that labetalol is safe during pregnancy but I would check with your OB on whether they want you to continue with the HCTZ. Also, if you do a search on here you'll see that the the diet you mention has been heavily discussed. Unfortunately there is no diet or magic pill that can prev...

Re: Early Onset Pre-e on 2nd, late onset on 1st. What next?

Welcome. I am so sorry for the loss of your precious baby girl. I'm glad to see that you are being considered high risk and seeing specialists. Like they told you it is unusual to have early onset after late onset but we've had other women with "unusual" situations on here. The good news is that you...
