Re : Symptoms Update

<t>Diane, congratulations on reaching 32 weeks! Your changing symptoms are a bit concerning and should certainly be evaluated further. How did the home visit go today? Have they done a 24 hour urine test or blood work (HELLP/PIH panels)? Please let us know how you are doing. We'll be thinking of you...

Re : BP better but feeling worse??

<r>Ditto what Rachel said. Please let us know how your doctor's visit goes tomorrow. Until then, I suggest trying to stay hydrated and getting some extra rest. Don't hesitate to call your doctor before the visit if you start feeling worse. Symptoms link: <URL url="http://www.preeclampsia.org/symptom...
