Our little guy is here!

Started an induction at 39+2 on Tuesday (8/28) night. Had our little guy on 8/29 at 12:42 pm. Labor and birth went great, BP was just a bit high throughout, and already down post partum. Little guy is so calm and laid back! God is good!

Re: How Does Bed Rest Work?

I have read a few articles that say that the benefit of bed rest has not been proven with preeclampsia, but obviously your case is a little more complicated with your strong family history of placental abruption. My OB was quick to take me off work at 29 weeks with both pregnancies, and I was on str...

Is it wrong to want induction?

At my appointment on Wednesday, my midwife offered me the choice of having an induction next week (at 39+ weeks), or waiting to go into labor on my own. My due date is Labor Day, so I am apprehensive about waiting through that weekend plus the holiday, so I was leaning toward requesting an induction...

Re: PIH vs PE @ 31 Weeks Preg

I am a chronic hypertensive as well, and my blood pressures did follow the same pattern. Mine were mildly elevated before pregnancy, went down through most of my first and second trimester, and have been creeping higher and higher the further into the third trimester that I get. I believe they call ...

Re: rising uric acid

Just wanted to add some details...I'm looking for some comfort here if at all possible because I am very anxious. I had an appointment yesterday when I was 37+2 weeks. I'm on 200 mg twice a day Labetalol, and my BP was 140/100 sitting up, but dropped to 120s/80s laying on back and left side. Protein...

rising uric acid

I was just wondering if your blood uric acid has to be out of range to be abnormal, or is a rising uric acid with high blood pressure of concern?

Re: 35 weeks. Thoughts?

How is your blood pressure? I think it is always a good idea to prepare for a 37 week birth. I never met the diagnostic criteria of 300 of protein with my daughter...and they still induced at 37 weeks.

Re: has anyone had this happen to them?

I have not had this happen to me, or know of anyone it did happen to, but I wanted to offer my 2 cents. Where is her swelling? Has she had an echocardiogram recently to check on the function of her heart muscle? Did she have any issues with swelling prior to her pregnancy? In my mind there is obviou...

Re: she's measuring small

My daughter measured small when I was pregnant with her. She measured 30 weeks at 31, and 33 weeks at 35. She was considered IUGR when she was born at 5 lbs 0.5 oz at 37 weeks 4 days. When my OB got a look at her when she was born, he said she was small because of my PIH. I have had to have growth s...
