<t>I love this forum so much. I could have written your post to a t. I'm 2 days pp my bp are in 140/90 and 150/100s. Not what they like to see. I'm an anxious ball of nerves in my hosital bed. The ob on call visited me n said they wanted to start me on labetalol twice a day. I totally trust them but...

Re : bp is such a funny thing

<t>I feel like I could have written your post haha<br/> My blood pressures starting to make me feel like the girl that cried wolf.<br/> <br/> Yesterday it stayed at 139/89 most the day in that range. This morning I had some crazy scary vision disturbances floaties or lightening bolt like things that...

Re : explain it to me

<t>I called the L&D hospital to let them know I didn't have a safe way to get there in this bad storm. <br/> They had the doctor on the floor call me back to decide if it was absolutely necessary I come in. I saw this doc early on in this pregnancy so she's not a total stranger. <br/> She pulled...

Re : explain it to me

<t>I kind of had a bad night thinking about all of this. <br/> I woke up a couple times I decided after I finally did get a good stretch of sleep, I took my blood pressure because after all I felt rested, it was 9:15am, I felt mellow, nothing on my mind.<br/> My reading was 149/93, the highest I've ...

Re : explain it to me

<t>Thanks Kara :)<br/> My mind is fuzzy from everything today, I think she was saying if the protein is high enough then they'll diagnose me as pre-e plus baby with the growth restriction and we won't wait. It sounds like Friday if that protein is diagnosable then I'm being admitted over the weekend...

Re : explain it to me

<t>I go back this Friday to turn in my 24 hour protein test (2nd one this pregnancy) and while I'm there I have another NST for 45 minutes this time (today I had one for 20 minutes) then I see my OB after the NST probably to go over the findings of that. <br/> The protein lab that I turn in on frida...

This is my 3rd, same dad with all 3 kids.<br/> Baby has hydronephrosis (one large kidney) so we've been having weekly ultrasounds to watch the kidney size. In one of the ultrasounds 2 weeks ago they found cord flow ...

Re : 5 weeks pregnant midwife has scared me

<t>Shesh no kidding that sounds a little extreme to visit you weekly.<br/> Maybe ask her if there are any safe blood pressure medications that you can take to keep your bp down since you're starting to have high pressure so early. <br/> I don't know if that's the greatest recommendation but I do hav...

Re : umbilical cord precursor for pre-e

<t>I do indeed have a bp cuff at home. I have a good automated one that wraps around my upper arm like at the docs office. I hear those are most accurate. <br/> I try to be aware of kicks too. She's pretty active but does have quiet spurts that usually alert me to drink something to get her to wake ...

umbilical cord precursor for pre-e

<t>Hi again!<br/> I have some interesting news.<br/> I've been having to have biweekly ultrasounds because baby has one kidney that's been larger than it should since week 20.<br/> 2 weeks ago baby's kidney was severe so they sent me to the university for a better diagnosis or look.<br/> Today I had...
