Re : BP vent

<t>Something that I did if you are getting different readings at home vs. the doctor's office (which I was) - I took my 'home' BP unit with me when I went to the doctors. We used theirs and then mine within a few minutes of each other. They were quite close, and that at least eased my mind that my u...

Hydronephrosis and PE/HELLP

<t>Does anyone have any information on the possible relationship between hydronephrosis and PE/HELLP? I was diagnosed with hydronephrosis of my left kidney about 4 months after my 'bout' with PE/HELLP.

Re : PE has struck again :( UPDATED

<t>I am so glad that you have so many wonderful people to help and care for you. I am sure that it's a struggle to be on bedrest. How about learning to knit? It's relaxing, and in the end, you'll have a few wonderful hand made items. You and your little one are in my sincerest prayers...God Bless<br...
