Re: HELLP Without PE?

My Bp was normally very low 90/60 so I think I had the Bp issue but they didn't recognize it because my Bp was very high for me. I also never had pain in side. I just felt like I had cold. When they did testing the platelets and protein were the issue for me. I did go on to have a healthy baby lucki...

Re: Weird pain in lower "area"

I had those a few times in my last pregnancy. It was just the way the baby was lying. He had started to turn but then went breech again around 32 weeks. By 36 weeks he had turned into the right position again. The pain was so bad I could not walk and actually missed a few days of work just to put my...

Re: Amnio date and c section ?

I didn't have an amnio since everything was progressing without any PE/Hellp. But I wanted to weigh in on the csection. First time, I had emergency c-section because my platelets were too low to have an epidural and the baby was in distress and her heart was doing crazy thing in utero. It took me a ...

Re: What were your symptoms with pre-e?

I was extremely nervous with this last pregnancy after having HELLP the 1st time, then 2 miscarriages in a row. I was reluctant to get attached to the baby during the pregnancy until the 3rd trimester, but once he arrived in January, I was absolutely smitten. I did ask a lot more questions this time...

Re: Called the on Call doc ***UPDATED went in!

Laura- I am so sorry you are going through all this stress. On x-mas eve I had same sort of thing- vomiting and I panicked and went to hospital- luckily all of my labs turned out ok. During this last pregnancy, I started every call to the doctor with - last time I had Class I HELLP and my baby and m...

Blood Pressure after Birth

How long did it take for everyone's BP to go down after birth? With this pregnancy, I did not have HELLP/PE but at end my bp started creeping up at the end. I had a few odd readings over 140 but it usually was in the 130s/70s the last few weeks of the pregnancy. My BP is normally very low- 90s/50s. ...

Re: How to handle toddler while in hosp for c-section

Lizard- I elected a c-section. When I had my daughter I was admitted for HELLP. They were going to induce but I could not have epidural because my platelet count was so low. But then my daughter's heart rate started racing then falling in utero so they decided not to take any chances and do an emerg...

Yeah- baby born at 39 weeks

So happy and excited. My little man- Declan was born on Tuesday at 39 weeks. He weighs 9 lbs, 21 3/4 inches and perfect in every way. Still amazed that I made it through this without PE/HELLP this time.

Re: My heart is racing

I agree with Lizard. I had same experience. I was willing to try initially but after having 2 miscarriage- one late - I decided I was not emotionally ready to go through that. On May 1st our community had a garage sale and we sold almost all of our baby stuff because we had pretty much decided that ...
