Re: Anyone else taking super greens?

Pregnancy can also cause a drop, so it could just be that. (Or it can go the other way, it's so confusing sometimes.) I had a big drop at 8 weeks this time and had to stop my BP meds as I was getting too dizzy to stand. Not sure when it will go back up again.

Re: Looks Like We're Losing This Baby Too :(

I passed what I think is the baby/ sack/ placenta this morning. We went to the doctor this afternoon. They were sending the tissue to the pathologist as this is my second loss (in 4 months). He suspects this was a chromosomal problem with the baby and we won't have another issue. They are going to c...

Looks Like We're Losing This Baby Too :(

We had our rescan at the doctor yesterday. The baby hasn't grown at all since the last U/S and didn't have a heartbeat. The doctor has taken blood for hcg and I go back on Monday for a repeat, but I started bleeding pink when I wipe after we left the doctor, so don't think it will be long before the...

Re: BP Dropping 7 1/2 Weeks?

It's been 2 days and he still hasn't called. :( Feel we may have to change doctors again. We have an appointment on Friday though. I'll stay off the meds, but continue to monitor my BP. Tonight it was 130/80, so still okay without the meds.

BP Dropping 7 1/2 Weeks?

Has anyone had their BP drop as early as 7 1/2 weeks? I've been on Labetalol 100mg/ 2X day since about 2 months PP with my daughter. Sunday I could not stand for more than 10 minutes without getting dizzy. I took my BP (when I wasn't dizzy) and it was lower than it has been several times. It was mai...

Re: How often should ultrsounds be done when High risk?

The doctor told me we would start monthly ultrasounds at 20 weeks. I had one (well really 2, but different doctors, same day) at 6 weeks, have one at 8 to make sure baby is growing. I'll have either one or two at 12 weeks, then 20 and monthly from there.

Re: Anyone with GD?

The OB said he wanted to do it at 12 weeks for some reason. I will definitely ask them to do it earlier and try to eat only low GI foods for now. I'm meeting with another MFM on the 16th, so I'll ask him about the BS issues. When I saw the last one I wasn't pregnant and my BS was still normal, so we...

Re: Anyone with GD?

I've had hypogylcemia for years and both grandmothers are diabetic, so I definitely have risk factors. I really still think it's pregnancy related as it started with my last pregnancy which was less that 4 months before this one. I've read in rare cases the hormones can cause first trimester GD. I'm...

Anyone with GD?

I think I may already have GD and I'm only 6 weeks. My blood sugar was 157 the other day, so way too high. The OB wasn't concerned at all, but I've read high BS can cause major birth defects, so I'm very concerned. Has anyone had diabetes or GD in the first tri?

Re: Second Preganacy after loosing my first to preeclampsia

I also lost my first at 27 weeks. The one OB I went to highly suspects HELLP syndrome.
