Re: Recurrence rate with new GD diagnosis?

Hrmmm....very interesting! So it well may be that I have GD *because of* my pre-e history (or at least due to whatever causes my propensity for pre-e in the first place). Funnily enough, I failed the 1 hour GTT with my first two pregnancies as well, both of which had hypertensive issues but passed i...

Recurrence rate with new GD diagnosis?

Hey ladies! It's been a long time since I spent much time here, probably about 4.5 years ago during my 2nd pregnancy. I am now pregnant with #4 (and final) and have a question. I had severe pre-e and post-partum pre-e with #1 and mild gestational hypertension at term with #2. My third pregnancy was ...

Re : Tachycardia and PE history?

Thanks Kelli! That was interesting reading. And you are right--with our histories, any cardiac blip is going to to attract attention and "probably" be linked.

Re : Tachycardia and PE history?

<t>Thanks ladies. I am on no meds--the BPs are just nice and low. And outside of pregnancy, I do not experience this at least to the extreme that I am now.<br/> <br/> The cardiologist indicated that what I am experiencing is NOT normal--during my EKG a couple of weeks ago, my heartrate was in the 70...

Tachycardia and PE history?

<t>Currently I am 34w pregnant with #3. I had severe pre-e and post-partum with my first and extremely mild PIH with my 2nd near term as well. After her birth, my BPs remained borderline high for nearly a year and then normalized. This pregnancy, my BPs have been stellar (100s/60s). <br/> <br/> Howe...

Re : Timing of the 2nd Tri Dip?

Thanks all! I need to get my home monitor in working order. I didn't even think about normal variation, but yeah, it could be.

Re : Timing of the 2nd Tri Dip?

<t>Thanks Laura! I wasn't diagnostic (quite), so I didn't get a chronic label. But both my OB and PCP are pretty sure I'm an "unmasking" gal, that chronic HTN is a "when", not an "if" for me.<br/> <br/> My OB did make a funny face about the rise during the 2nd tri. I was just curious to see what oth...

Timing of the 2nd Tri Dip?

<t>I'm currently 19w with #3. I had severe pre-e and pp htn with DD1, diagnostic pressures at 40+w with DD2. My BP stayed elevated for me (130s/80-90) until DD2 was nearly a year old. <br/> <br/> This time, my BPs seem to be trending oddly:<br/> <br/> 6w = 128/78<br/> 14w = 106/62<br/> 18w = 118/72<...

Re : Induction for mild preeclampsia?

<t>I just wanted to add that I WISH I had been induced at 37w! I was diagnosed with PIH at 35w and began dipping +1 (no 24hr ever ordered) at 36.5w or so. My OB dragged things out until my EDD, even though I presented about 10 days before that with a severe headache and facial swelling. <br/> <br/> ...
