Re: link between indigestion and pre-e?

Hmmm...indigestion seems to be a common prengnacy symptom no matter what. I wouldn't count it as a pre-e symptom just because it is so very common in pregnancy. When baby pushes up on your organs as he/she gets bigger, there is less room in the stomach and acid can occur as your organs shift around....

Re: Introducing Myself

Welcome to the boards! You will find a lot of support here. I am so sorry to hear about your son. I hope that this pregnancy will have a better outcome for you. I agree to follow your gut instincts and not to follow a specific diet as there is no research that a specific diet can make any difference...

Re: What Symptoms Come First?

The first sign for me was at 6 weeks pregnant, when I was bleeding and my hormone levels were not as they should be, suggesting a shallow or weak implantation. Then, at my first trimester combined screening, my PAPPA levels were very low and my HCG levels were high, again suggesting placental proble...

Re: Pre-e at 29 weeks, and doctor not concerned?

I had a similar situation during my pregnancy. When I was 29 weeks pregnant and went to the triage after recording high BP at home, they got a reading of 190/120 there while I was sitting up but 150/90 laying down. Therefore, my OB said that I should just go home and "take it easy" and lay on my lef...

Re: 24 hour protein/ QUESTION!

My blood pressure shot up at 26 weeks, was really high at 29 weeks, but then stabilized as I was put on meds and bed rest. At 36 weeks when I delivered, my BP was in the 170s/100s at my appointment but was down in the 140s/90s once I got to the hospital. My protein was taken at 3 times. Once at 29 w...

Re: BP reading of 178/110... go to ER or okay to wait till t

Georgia girl, As the queen of anxiety, I know a lot about anxiety meds. Just so you know, Zoloft takes a month to start working and at first can make you much more anxious. I have been on it for a while now and at first it made me feel much worse. A more helpful choice might be a benzo, like Ativan ...
