BP elevated and doing 24 HR... advice please?

So I am officially 34 weeks today! Hooray! I had an appt yesterday with an ultrasound to check his position and growth. Unlike my last pregnancy (where my LO measured 14 days behind upon delivery), this baby is measuring 11 days ahead! I'm glad he's growing and can't believe he is already bigger tha...

Re: Question regarding "atypical" Pre-E

Got my ultrasound results! Right kidney has moderate to severe hydronephrosis while the left side is normal. Gallbladder and liver are normal! I also got my DMSA scan from 2010 that showed a split kidney function of 40% left and 60% right with decreased activity and scarring in the left kidney. I al...

Re: Question regarding "atypical" Pre-E

So I ended up getting my ultrasound early since I had the history of IUGR and THIS baby is measuring in the 56th percentile! YAY! He's breech, but I'm sure he'll turn (I hope anyway). I ended up having some horrific abdominal pain, and although I don't think it's related to HELLP/PE, I still mention...

Re: Question regarding "atypical" Pre-E

I had my 3 hour test and passed THANK GOD! I am now 29 weeks. I ended up having what looked like "bloody show" a week ago but after getting checked out, it ended up being nothing (or at least not preterm labor). I'm not sure what caused it but unless it happens again, I'll just chalk it up to being ...

Re: Question regarding "atypical" Pre-E

Went to the dr today! My BP was 118/74, which is elevated but still good! I told my dr of all my symptoms and after a urine sample and pelvic check, everything came seemed normal. I even reduced my normal water intake so my urine would not be diluted! They did a glucose test today... I failed :( The...

What is considered High Blood Pressure?

I know that diagnostic criteria for preeclampsia is a blood pressure of 140/90 on two separate occasions plus proteinuria but my question is about the blood pressure... Does blood pressure have to be 140/90 (both diastolic and systolic high) OR would high blood pressure count if diastolic OR (not an...

Re: Question regarding "atypical" Pre-E

Hey ladies! I was out of town for a few weeks and haven't been on in awhile. It was fun, but I've realized that being close to 28 weeks REALLY does limit what I can and can't do! I'm glad to be home for good until baby boy arrives :D My average pressures in my left arm are between 110-120/75-80. Som...

Question regarding "atypical" Pre-E

Sooooooo..... My last pregnancy had low BPs at first appt, 100/60 on average and slowly rose to 130/80 by 31 weeks. At 32 weeks, it was confirmed I had proteinuria but kept getting the run-around on whether or not I had preeclampsia since my BPs were not hypertensive. By 35 weeks, my daughter was IU...

Re: Indicators at Anatomy Scan

Baby measured right on track (well actually 1 day ahead) so that was great news! There were no other "issues" that they spoke of and said everything was normal. I did think that the ultrasound was SUPER FAST. I was in there for MAYBE 10 minutes. I thought they lasted longer than that. All in all, ev...

Re: Indicators at Anatomy Scan

Okay, that's good to know! I actually want to have a notebook and write down all the measurements that they take! I know it's a little extreme, but it's the "control freak" in me. During my last pregnancy, I was not well informed on testing and ultrasounds! I am probably annoying my drs... but I don...
