Anybody watched "The Doctors" show today?

<t>Hello ladies<br/> <br/> They were discussing weight gain during pregnancy and how bad it is for women to exceed the 25 lb limit. The Ob/gyn on the show said that if you put on too much weight during pregnancy you will develop preeclampsia. I don't think that is true at all. I know a lot of women ...

Re : Should I ask for 24 hour urine at this point?

I just did another test after I had breakfast and drunk a glass of water and the dipstick was negative. I still feel paranoid and I feel like calling my doc. I would really appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks

Re : How can I convince my peri to do this?

<t>Hi ladies<br/> <br/> Yes I am seing an OB as well but my OB does not do ultrasounds. They do all the things I do at home like BP check, weight, protein check and now blood sugar check. I check all these at home. My peri on the other hand does ultrasounds (I hope ) at every visit.<br/> <br/> Thank...

For how long did you have that blood pressure machine? I had mine for over two years. It's been giving me error messages too. I bought another one from Target to double check the numbers.

Re : How can I convince my peri to do this?

Thanks Rebecca, yes I am monitoring my BP and also checking my urine with sticks at home. What I want more is ultrasounds and 24 hour urine tests. My peri said if you see more than trace call him.

Re : Those who took Atenolol during pg

Thanks Gloria. I do keep a log of my BP and fax it to my peri once a week. I also have gestational diabetes and have to check my blood sugar four times a day and keep a log of it.

Stacey, how often were you seen by your peri when you were on 100mg of Atenolol?

Thanks

When I just take it I feel better for few hours and once it's out of my system I feel like somebody is chocking me.<br/> <br/> Thank...
