Re : Third Preg?

<t>Hi all - Good luck to all third timers - my third pregnancy was by far my best. No meds at all (and I'm borderline hypertensive even when not pregnant). My son was born almost a year ago at 38 weeks 7lb 11oz. First daughter was 32 weeks (3lb) second daughter was 36 weeks 6lb.<br/> <br/> I would l...

Re : Third Pregnancy?

My third was my best pregnancy - still had PIH but no PE. Delivered at 37 weeks but he was 7lb 11 so all fine.

I must be crazy but I'm even thinking of going #4. 4 sections might be a bit much for anyone though!

I had my baby...and suprise surprise it is a boy!!

<t>Well James arrived 8am Monday 15 June - 7 lbs 11oz at 37 weeks. No PE, just higher BP but I was +1 for protein the morning of delivery. He is my biggest babe by a full pound and absolutely beautiful. Must admit we were shocked to get a boy after 2 girls and I'm enjoying learning all about little ...

Re : Should I be worried?

<t>Firstly, I'm no expert but my doctors always said BP naturally rises in pregnancy which is why they have lower expectations about what your BP will be i.e. mine has travelled at about 130/75-80 the whole time and no-one was worried at all. Even as it has risen to borderline 140/90 closer to the b...

Having a baby Monday!

<t>Well after about 4 weeks of borderline BP (160/90 at the highest) but normal bloods and urine we are booked in for a c-section Monday!<br/> I'll be 37 weeks 6 days - and not medicated! Amazing for a hypertensive who had severe PE at 28 weeks first time and PIH from day 1 second time. <br/> <br/> ...

Re : Second Trimester Dip?

<t>I had a dip like that even later - about 25 weeks. I got a reading of 110/60 at my nephrologists office. I'm borderline hypertensive even when not pregnant - 130/80 is a great reading for me. It caused me to freak out for a while. I was sure something was wrong - there wasn't, just enjoy it.<br/>...

35 weeks - looks like I won't make 37...

<t>Well had another OB appointment today. BP is definitely up 155/90 according to him (although they've been lower at home). No protein, or other symptoms but I'm having full bloods done tomorrow. <br/> <br/> Was supposed to deliver on the 15th but suspect my OB is currently changing my date to earl...

Re : low dose aspirin question

<t>Thanks - I still have (hopefully) 3 weeks until my c-section sounds sounds like plenty of time.<br/> <br/> Pressures are definitely on the rise - routinely getting 145/85 at home and much higher at doctors(they have been nicely at 135/75 most of the time).<br/> <br/> Only 3 weeks to go, no other ...

low dose aspirin question

<t>Hi all - just a question for those who have taken low dose aspirin. At what stage did you stop taking it? <br/> <br/> I was on aspirin last pregnancy but can't remember when I was told to stop.<br/> <br/> I'm currently almost 35 weeks (on Tuesday) with a planned c-section at 37 weeks 5 days (unle...
