Re : At what point does your peri treat high bp?

<t>I left them a message yesterday afternoon, but haven't heard back from them. My bps started at about 115/75 in this pregnancy. When we've talked about medication before, the dr has said the same things that were mentioned in previous posts, he doesn't want to bring it down too much because it cou...

Re : At what point does your peri treat high bp?

<t>Thanks for the responses guys. My b/p reached 170/100 yesterday. I left work and came home. Lying down on my left side all day got it down to about 140s/80s, sometimes higher, sometimes lower. This morning, my pressures have been very close to 150/100. <br/> <br/> I'm curious as to how your peris...

At what point does your peri treat high bp?

<t>I'm wondering what everyone's experiences are with their doctor's tolerance level for high blood pressure? This is my second pregnancy. The first was going along fine until all of a sudden at just before 30 weeks my bp registered at 200/110. Needless to say, I was sent to the hospital (it was con...

Re : New & Lost

<t>What a scary experience. From my own experience, I can tell you that you need to be with a perinatologist (high-risk OB) the next time around. I am being monitored much more closely in this pregnancy. I'm very educated on the signs and symptoms. I monitor my own blood pressure at home 3 times a d...

anyone get high b/p controlled by meds, but not PE

<t>So I'm 26 weeks into my second pregnancy. Was diagnosed with PE suddenly at 30 weeks in last pregnancy (made it to 34 on strict hospital bedrest), but had only been being monitored every 4 weeks, so who knows how long I had it before then. My b/p has gone up, but it has gone up in response to a v...

Re : Infertility Treatments & Risk of Multiples

<t>I've done it all, from clomid IUI's to IVFs (4 in all). Your decision should be based in part on the reason for your infertility. Is it unexplained? Egg quality? Male factor? Without knowing the answers to those questions, I would definitely start with Clomid/IUIs. You may be a high responder (li...

Re : Stess question

<t>Stress can definitely affect blood pressure (I have first hand experience during my non-pregnant days). But there is no evidence that I'm aware of that stress and/or temporarily high blood pressure caused by stress plays any role in the development or progression of PE. From all the studies that ...

Re : Is it true...?

Nicole,

I'm so sorry about that horrible letter. I just can't imagine what state of mind your BIL could be in to write such a thing. Prayers for you and your family.
