I had my baby

<t>I haven't posted very often but I thought I would give you all my update. I'm not sure if anyone remembers but I had PIH in my previous pregnancy and an abruption during labor at 40 weeks that led to a crash c-section. 4 days after I began having very bad PP hypertension and was readmitted for 5 ...

Re : Chronic Hypertensive: What meds are you on?

I was on methyldopa during my last pregnancy. It never controlled my BP very well either. This pregnancy I am on Bystolic which is a betablocker very similar to atenolol.

Re : When do most doctors deliver for PIH?

<t>I had just PIH last time. I was told If I get PIH again we will deliver at 37 weeks. PIH can be dangerous also. I ended up with a total placental abruption during labor at 40 weeks and crazy high BP's afterward that landed me back in the hospital for another week PP. I will not be pushing to go l...

Re : C-Section vs. Vaginal Delivery

<t>I have had both. I was 19 when I had my first and had no problems. I ended up with a non medicated vaginal delivery. My husband was wonderful although it was hard for him. He was 18 at the time. With our second, I was 36 and was induced at term with PIH. During labor he was in a compound presenta...

Re : Vitamin D deficiency

So now I am really wondering why he has me taking so much. It looks like I fall right in the middle of the normal range. I am seeing him tomorrow and I will ask him where he wants my levels and when he will lower the amount I am takeing.

Re : Vitamin D deficiency

<t>The MFM tested mine at the pre-con appointment and it was 44. He has me takeing 4000iu every day. I don't know what he wants it at. They retested a few weeks ago and I never heard about the results. 4000iu sounded like a lot. I have a girlfriend who goes to the same doctor. He has her on 6000iu. ...

What does it look like to see spots

<t>In my last pregnancy they asked me over and over if I saw spots. I always said no. What I did see was stars. It wasn't all the time but it was everyday. The same stars I see sometimes when my shower is too hot sometimes when I am not pregnant. It looked like very small stars moving around in my v...

Re : Aldomet and lab work

<t>I was on aldomet throughout my last pregnancy. I also have issues with depression and anxiety. I never noticed my depression being an issue on it. My PIH labs always came back normal so for me it didn't effect the values. The one REALLY bad side effect I had was snoring and tiredness. My family s...
