Re : Platelet Question

Thanks everyone. I definetly did not develop HELLP or pre-e this time. My OB was just being extra cautious due to my history.

Re : Platelet Question

My platelets took another fairly significant "dip" so to be on the safe side Abigail Marie was delivered via c-section on April 7 :). She was 9 lbs 1 oz and perfect. She's started to develop a touch of jaundice so we're watching her carefully. Other than that we couldn't be happier.

Re : Platelet Question

Thank-you for the reply. The platelets have just made me uneasy. I guess I just need to learn to sit back and enjoy a relatively uncomplicated pregnancy.

Re : Platelet Question

Sorry its 118000, 125000, and 120000. So I know they are too low. I don't know how I managed to miss the "1" in all three of those numbers. That's what I get for posting a message too early in the morning.

Would you be concerned?

<t>I havn't posted much on this forum this pregnancy because I havn't had to, but lately some of my blood pressure readings have me concerned. They've jumped from an average of 120/75 to 135/85 with a reading this morning of 133/87. I know they are still in normal range but the trend is worrisome. <...

Re : Pregnant again

<t>I had that appointment and the notching was gone. He gave my a 30% chance of having blood pressure "issues" but only a 5% chance of developing pre-e again. <br/> <br/> I've been kind of nervous though. My diastolic pressure has been great for me(75-80's) but my systolic has been creeping up (130-...

Re : Pregnant again

<t>Just checking in. I'm almost 24 weeks and still no signs of pre-e!! My blood pressure is normal, and my little GIRL is growing right on track. I have started dipping trace proteins which is worrisome but my doctors are trying to reassure me that can be completely normal. Oh well....I suppose I wi...

Re : Frequency of appointments?

My appointments were monthly up until 13 weeks or so, now they're weekly. It's a pain but i'm glad they're following me closely
