Re : BP rise > 15 diastolic over baseline?

<t>In the '06 ACOG paper, they dropped increase in baseline from the criteria. It's now only BP higher than 140/90, plus the other criteria. <br/> <br/> Typically baseline used to be first trimester. <br/> <br/> As for delivery versus expectant management, what are your urine protein numbers? Have y...

Re : They havn't said the P word yet... but its not far

<t>I pop on here now and then - had pre-e with both of my pregnancies, first at 39 weeks, second at 26 weeks. <br/> <br/> My suggestion - it's hard! - breathe and relax. You have elevated BP over 140 on more than two separate readings, and a dip of +1 - which is definitively preeclampsia. Mild preec...

Re : Explain what defines having preeclampsia better?

<t>Like many here I had a variety of symptoms, different with each pregnancy. My first I had high BP quick onset at 39 weeks (150/85). Higher and increasing during labor, positive dip during labor, headaches & swelling. I was put on mag sulfate. My baseline non-pregnant BP is 90/60.<br/> <br/> S...

Re : How fast can PIH become preeclampsia

<t>I can just tell you my experience - with my first, I was diagnosed with PIH on Friday, and pre-e on Tuesday... when the blood & urine tests came back. I was at term, and I went into labor naturally on Tuesday. With my second, I was diagnosed with PIH at 25 weeks, pre-e at 26 weeks. You just n...

Treatment/prophylaxis for recurrent pre-e?

<t>I finally made the call! After debating about it since my second son was born 3 1/2 years ago, I am going to see the MFM specialists at *** for a pre-conception visit (we have not decided to have another child but I want to know my options). In reading the research, I strongly suspect that I may ...

Re : Chance another baby...or not?!?

<t>I had pre-e diagnosed at 39 weeks with my first, and 26 weeks with my second. Both cases were mild but difficult, both children were fine and thankfully full-term. I am contemplating a third though my in-laws and extended family think I'm nuts. <br/> <br/> I feel that you two should decide what's...

possible to avoid bedrest?

<t>I'm 38, nearly 39 and considering a third pregnancy. With my first child, I was diagnosed with PIH at 39 weeks, when my slowly climbing BP hit 145/90ish over a few days. During labor my BP was high upon admission and I think my urine tests were positive because I was put on mag sulfate. I wound u...
