Re: Blood pressure years after preeclampsia

Thanks for the input! That is helpful, and good to know that MIL held out for many years before the issue came up.

Blood pressure years after preeclampsia

I haven't been here for a while! I was just wondering for those that had blood pressure issues begin in pregnancy with their preeclampsia diagnosis, since preeclampsia basically exposes your risk of potential future issues-- how long after pregnancy were you able to maintain a healthy blood pressure...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

Sounds good! I figured I just don't have much excitement to add. Sorry about how things are going for you... I really hope you feel more yourself soon so you can feel normal again. I went on another brief vacation, so coming back to the same scenario as last time. I didn't gain, but didn't lose, so ...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

I know what you mean about kryptonite. I had purposely stopped baking treats for a while, because even if I don't eat many they seem to put weight on me immediately. However if I just have baked goods on a random basis at coffee shops, etc, it is fine. I guess it is probably that I eat more of them ...

Re: Can PP hypertension indicate a risk factor for PreE?

I know that docs differ in their approaches, but if my doctor told me that the moment I developed hypertension in a pregnancy that he would put me on bedrest, I would be skeptical too. Generally some docs might do that further along in the pregnancy if the patient is having other issues too, but man...

Re: Can PP hypertension indicate a risk factor for PreE?

Definitely agree with the above. I don't have a stress reaction to bp, but I do get white coat hypertension easily, and have for years. I did develop pre-e in my pregnancy, and had elevated bp postpartum for several months. I was fortunate enough to get off meds and that my bp normalized below my pr...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

So, surprise today that I weighed 150.5.... after vacation and last week being slight disruptive, I was happy to stay at 152. But this motivates me to keep going. I know it will take a week or two for the new weight to "stick", but I was thrilled! I feel so much lighter and better right now, and wou...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

Good job girls! I have been on vacation, so ate lots of yummy food, but mainly stuck to 2 meals a day to make up for that. So, in the end I think I am pretty much the same weight as when I left which is a great accomplishment. I also made myself go on walks every other day, so I got some exercise in...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

It is hard to do things "right" when you are feeling off--no doubt about that. I saw that article, and it makes me sad that the kids are impacted by it :-( I can understand myself, as it was one of a few markers I have had to keep an eye out for cardiac issues.... but I don't like that what happened...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

Things are kind of the same here.... weight dropped back down to 152.5 despite some 4th of July fun, so that is encouraging. I think I will post my weight for the last time on WW today, as I wasn't really using the tools anyway and cancelled when the 3 months are up. I will just keep on in my own st...
