What happened to me??

I just had my daughter (3rd pre-e pregnancy) 2 days ago via emergency c-section at 34 1/2 weeks. This pregnancy was very strange, in regards to the way pre-e hit. I never had the swelling, my blood pressures swung up and down by 20-40 points w/in minutes and hours so medication wasn't possible, I wa...

Re: Did losing weight reduce risk of PE again??

No. I had WLS just to challenge this question, and I'm running into Pre-E again on my 3rd pregnancy. It's just more unpredictable.

Re : Epilepsy/High Blood Pressure Seizures

Hmmm Interesting answer. The only thing, is that it didn't happen every time I woke up. However, this will definitely be something I watch out for when we TTC again.

Thank you for the quick reply! :)

Re : Gastric Bypassers!

<t>So glad to see this post was already out there...<br/> <br/> I'm in the final pre-op stages of RNY. I'd also been wondering if it would reduce the chances of Pre-E or not. I've heard mixed answers, but nonetheless, weight is listed as one of the contributing factors. We do plan on TTC 2 years aft...

Re : question: Labelatol

<t>It does sound like he started you off on a high dose. 150/80 seems like a number you'd get after walking up a couple flights of stairs while 8 months pregnant. Did they recheck it after 15 minutes of relaxing, and before he prescribed the meds? <br/> <br/> Controlling blood pressure is very trick...

Epilepsy/High Blood Pressure Seizures

<t>While I was pregnant with my second son (high blood pressure, but protein stopped right before the "Pre-E" mark) there were two or three occurrences when I would wake up in the middle of the night freaking out because I smelt smoke so strong that I thought the house was on fire. I didn't think mu...

Re : Pre-e in 2nd pregnancy - questions.

<t>mrsjrmiller it sounds like you and I are in the same boat. I am currently 35 wks, with my second child. First one was severe PE and c-sectioned at the 37 week mark w/ growth restriction of 5%. This one does not appear to have any problems w/ restriction, as it's showing 90%. Both times, BP's rose...

Re : IUGR

<t>My first had the restriction, 5th percentile. The one I'm currently carrying is around the 90th percentile! I asked if restriction may be an issue with this one, and the answer was "No, because we don't worry about it until hitting the 10th percentile or steady decline."<br/> <br/> When I asked a...

Re : What happens biologically during Pre-E

<t>Caryn, I completely didn't see your question. Sorry for the late response. The dose I'm on now is Labetalol(sp?) 300mg/3xdaily. The pressures swing so much that we don't want to raise the dose, or it could hit too low. It is creeping at a steady pace, however it's more the bottom number that's cr...
