Swelling not a symptom for diagnosis anymore

`That's what I was told today and just wanted to see if anyone else had heard that!?!?!?

Love,
Rachel

Re : Feeling dehydrated

<t>I wish Rachel had woken me up. She tries to be so thoughtful of me. She has a doctors appointment tomorrow and we'll talk to the doctor about it. She feels farely normal today, just really thirsty. <br/> <br/> Another TMI (she told me to type that) - her urine has been REALLY hot lately. Could th...

Feeling dehydrated

<t>Hi everyone!<br/> <br/> Ben is asleep and I'm still wide awake, so I thought I'd get on and ask a question. You all ahve been so good at answering our other questions, so here it goes.<br/> <br/> All day today I have been feeling increasingly dehydrated. I have been draining 8 oz glasses of water...

BP Fluctuations - Why?

<t>Why does blood pressure fluctuate up and down. My wife's blood pressure dropped through the floor after she was given a shot of steroids to help the baby's lungs mature and stayed down for quite a long time. However, it goes back up. Why does it do this and does it mean she's not really in that m...

Re : Totally Confused

<t>Rachel is doing fine. She's in bed constantly and sleeping fitfully. She feels pressure constantly in her arms and legs like they're swelling, but they remain the same. She likens it to a balloon that is on the verge of swelling but is straining at the pressure.<br/> <br/> She sees the doctor nex...

Re : Totally Confused

<t>I'm sorry that I haven't replied sooner.<br/> <br/> Rachel is doing fine. The hospital admitted her for observation and gave her some steroids to mature the babies lungs. She's back at home but is refusing to get out of bed so that she has as little activity as possible to try and keep her bp dow...

Re : Totally Confused

<t>You know - I just had another thought. I don't know what my BP was with my lsat pregnancy, but I was admitted for my water leaking at 32 weeks and my sweet little boy was born at 34 weeks. I had been having HORRIBLE pain in my abdomen and they did an u/s to see if it was gallstones. I just read t...

Re : Totally Confused

<t>The time my BP ws at 175/130 they discounted it because I had been "active" for a few minutes before they took it (sitting in the doctor's office and walking (they took my wheelchair) to the L&D only a few feet away.) She said (the Captain who is a nurse) that I was probably just too excited ...

Totally Confused

<t>Six weeks ago @ 28 weeks pregnant, I was diagnosed with mild pre-eclampsia. The doctors and the nurses aren't telling me anything, they just pat me on the head, tell me to stay in bed, and send me on my way. My blood pressure has averaged out at around 143/96 but after reading the "Ask the Expert...
