Update on me and baby Ethan's arrival

<r>Hi, all. The last time I posted was on 11/5 after I had visited L&D the night before for high bp readings. Well, the issue has resolved itself since then. On the afternoon of 11/5, my water broke and I went into labor. We headed for L&D, bp readings were fine, finally got in for my c-sect...

Re : Are women with polycystic ovaries more prone to PE

<t>I have PCOS and am dealing with PIH right now. So far, it hasn't developed into PE and I'm hoping to avoid it as I've only got to carry 2 more weeks. Time will tell, however. My first pg was uneventful with no PIH or PE, however, my PCOS did not really kick into high gear until after DD's birth.<...

Update--BP spiked, but all still ok

<t>Well, yesterday was exciting. When I got up, my bp was about what it's typically been running, but when I checked mid morning it jumped to 174/98! I checked several times over the day waiting to hear back from my dr and had high readings throughout including 169/100. I'd not hit 100 diastolic bef...

Re : fluctuating BP

<t>I have less experience than many who post here, but here is my input. I check my bp anywhere from 4 times a day to lots more depending on what it's doing and how I'm feeling. I log them all to keep a good overall picture of what's going on. It's typical to have fluctuations throughout the day wit...

Re : could these symptoms be related to bp?

<t>I'm glad you mentioned that about the Tylenol Cold. The dr is the one that's had me taking it throughout this pg to help control my allergies and thus prevent asthma problems. However, we haven't really talked about it since I got put on bedrest. I'll check on it.<br/> <br/> The urine dip kit is ...

Re : could these symptoms be related to bp?

<t>Thanks, Lisa and Leighann. I slept part of yesterday afternoon and went through a couple of doses of Tylenol cold and felt some better by last night. Plus bp's came down a little in the evening so that made me feel a little better too. So I held off on calling, but will keep an eye on things toda...

could these symptoms be related to bp?

<t>Hi, everyone. You've all been such a big help in the past few days, so I'm back with another question. Since yesterday am my bp's have hovered in the 150's-160's/90's again with a very occasional diastolic dip into the upper 80's. I've had only one lower reading with 146/85. Knowing that all was ...

Re : Update on climbing bp and dr visit

<t>Thanks Julie and Anne. I feel much better about it than I did Tuesday. Anne, he actually spent quite some time explaining to me his opinion that treating PIH with meds does not work and that it in fact doesn't buy any extra time. Since I'm not at a time in this pg when I need them I chose not to ...

Update on climbing bp and dr visit

<t>OK, I'm home and here to report. My bp at the Dr this am was 143/92, but the NST was good (reactive hb, lots of movement and still no contractions, which is good). Also, my urine only showed a very slight trace of protein. BP is obviously slowly climbing, but Dr. says that as long as everything e...

Re : bp climbing--Dr doesn't seem to mind.

<t>I really appreciate everyone's input. I will keep all the ideas and comments in mind and put them to use. I will keep close track of my various results tomorrow and will certainly get a second opinion if I don't feel comfortable. I neglected to mention that I'll also be having an NST tomorrow, wh...
