Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

<t>Alright, finally after 17 hours of labor, little Matthew arrived. He did wind up providing us with the scare of our lives though. As Kristi was finishing labor, on the last 4 pushes, Matthew lost his heart beat completely. He came out with his cord wrapped around his neck, not breathing and witho...

Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

<t>Well, over 9 hours in and Mom is now resting. We had a really bad scare when they went to put the epidural. We had the opposite problem, pressures fell to 83/41 and the baby's heart rate fell to 53. It was like an episode of ER, which is great, because they were able to stabalized both of them ab...

Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

<t>Well, plans have changed. Kristi had readings of 146/104, 148/112 and 156/118 today. Honestly, those scared me to death, so I asked the Dr's when we were going to take Mom's health into consideration and the nurse, PCT also spoke up on our side while they were there as well. So they have decided ...

Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

<t>Pressures yesterday were on average 144/97 with only one diastolic of 100. Looks like we will have an amnio tomorrow morning, if everything comes back ready to go, they will deliver on Tuesday. <br/> <br/> We asked about a labor plan, they will attempt vaginal delivery with Mom on Magnesium for t...

Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

Thanks!

We are trying to trust them as well, it's just the constant changes that are frustrating to us both. at 36/4, we need a plan that we can stick to. Maybe, I'm wrong.

I'll keep you posted

Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

<t>Okay, so pressures today have been 144/90, 153/92, 138/98 and we are being told that these are again not in the severe range and may change the plan again. <br/> <br/> One piece that I wanted to get some thoughts on is fetal heart rate. They checked FHR this evening and he spiked, not for very lo...

Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

<t>We have seen the MFM Doctors and the new plan is that they are going to wait until Monday to do an amnio, Monday is 37 weeks. If that comes back fine, they will deliver. If diastolic pressure goes up near 110 again, they will likely deliver this weekend. They said they are not sending us home unt...

Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

<t>They have not begun to check reflexes. We will bring that up when the MFM Doctors come in in a few minutes. They just did an ultrasound to check fluid and that seems fine, total fluid was 11.66cm. <br/> <br/> The Doctor who came in this morning was a resident and just from gauging nurse reaction,...

Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

<t>So, overnight pressures were 138/98 and 138/92. We have seen one Doctor so far this morning that basically is saying that with those pressures coming down, they do not plan to do anything. She is blaming the vision issues yesterday on her headache, not PE. <br/> <br/> I'll keep you posted. <br/> ...

Re : HBP Advice/Opinions Needed

<t>Well, we checked it one more time and it was 139/115 so we called the nurse and she told us to go back to the MEU. We did at around 5pm and after pressures of 181/96, 148/110, 146/110, 148/108, Kristi has been admitted again to the Hospital. <br/> <br/> We, literally, just got a room and pressure...
