Re: nathan nicholas born 3/10/11 via c-section 32 weeks

I had severe post partum PE and was readmitted back into ICU. I went to an Opthamologist and a Neurologist and had every test you cou...

Re: Just introducing myself

Report any high readings to your doc and you may want to start charting your bp taking it at the same time each day. One o...

Re: BP issues one year PP

No words of wisdom here Katherine, but Levi just turned 18 months yesterday and I am still on bp meds since my ICU stay. UGH. I wish it weren't so but a lot of me just thinks it's the luck of the draw. I never had high bp before, or in my first pregnancy, or in this last pregnancy until I was admitt...

I wish I didn't have to take that, but I do. It took me a long time to accept that fact, but I have. I never had high ...

Re: Sex life of a chronic hypertensive person

I now also have chronic hypertension. My son is 18 months old tomorrow and my bp never went back to normal. The good news is that I was released on 4 meds and now just take one that controls mine very well. I can relate (as most ladies on this forum) with your feelings about your traumatic experienc...
