Super-imposed PIH

Re : 24 hour urine and 5 little kids! ARGH!

<t>We have a bathroom in our bedroom and the toilet/shower part is actually separate from the "main" part of the bathroom. And there is a little cupboard in there. So I put the ice chest in the shower stall and the "hat" in the cupboard. No one would see it and thus be curious, right? WRONG!!!!!! Ou...

Re : Not pregnant, but high BP

<t>I'm chronic and have had some wonky pressures on and off through the years! [:D] (Usually while trying to adjust meds.) And it is OK. Non-pg high bp is a concern over the long haul- years w/o treatment. Or a sudden extremely high spike caused by something- injury or trauma, etc. Running on high b...

Re : Requesting an Induction

<t>I asked my OB about a 37 week induction when I was 25 weeks. She looked at me like I had sprouted 2 heads and seemed to think it unnecessary unless something went wrong.<br/> <br/> Fast forward...<br/> <br/> I am now under the care of a peri and I *very* tentatively asked him the same thing at my...
