Re : I am back unfortunately

Dr. visit went very well. We are having another girl which really surprised me. I really thought it was a boy. We are excited either way! Everything in ultrasound was perfect. Dr. was very pleased to see that I wasn't swelling any more. It was a great visit!!

They make neutral ones also. I just bought 7 pairs so I can wear shorts. I got mine from www.ameswalker.com They are much cooler than my white ones.

Re : I am back unfortunately

<t>Great dr. visit. My blood pressure was great! I have lost 2 lbs, which was swelling, since I am wearing my hose and eating low sodium.

Re : Hi I'm NEW...have salt question!!

<t>I am also on a low-sodium diet. I am 16 weeks pregnant and had preclampsia with my first. I am already severly swelling so the dr. is worried about Preclampsia again. Anyway, I was told to get under 3000mg from my dr. That is the "normal" amount that everyone should get so I set my goal for 2000m...

Re : New to the site

<t>Thanks for all the replies from everyone. Talked to Dr. and he wanted me to buy a blood pressure cuff so I did. BP is looking very good. He also put me on a low sodium diet. Since I have gotten on that diet, my feet and ankles have not swelled. I am so excited! See the doctor again on Friday.</t>
