Re: Lost my sister. Lost without my sister.

Norinda - I wanted to write and let you know I am so sorry to read about your sister! Your post is the one that has me out of hibernation - losing women due to childbirth makes me so mad! And sad.

Re: What should I discuss with my new doctor?

If it was me this is what I would do (and your thought to bring the records was spot on!): I would ask for them to do a 24 hr urine and I would keep a log of my BP's for the weeks prior to my appointment. Although you aren't yet pregnant you would be able to use the 24 hr urine as a 'baseline' for w...
