Re: Possibly delivering soon

No she wasn't really specific, probably because she is an OB and would most likely consult with a Peri before making the decision. The main Peri I have seen wants me to try diuretics and I got a second opinion on that and that Peri said I probably shouldn't do that. I am leaning towards not trying i...

Possibly delivering soon

I fear I am nearing the end of this pregnancy. I will be 33 weeks on Monday. I had been having some labile pressures in the past few days. Last night my BP was at 161/112 after my evening pills. This am I started out back at 120/70s and by 3 I was at 165/114, that is a huge jump in a short time. My ...

Re: Why do BPs only go up on Weekends???

I actually can't tell if the high readings are due to more activity or not. It really seems to just vary a lot and not necessarily based on what I am doing. I did do some shopping yesterday, but I have done a lot other days and not had the same issue. Also when I got that high reading I had been sit...

Why do BPs only go up on Weekends???

UGH!?! I wish I only had issues on weekday afternoons! Anways I am noticing a lot of swelling today and I just took my BP and it was 161/112. This is higher for me this pregnancy. My Peri told me that when my BPs are 160/105 all the time is when I should call in, but it hasn't been that high all day...

Re: Problems producing milk from magnesium

Interesting. I was on mag for 36 hours with my first and was born at 30 weeks 6 days. I never got my milk in fully but I always attributed it to exclusively pumping. It could have been that or the mag i suppose. I don't know if I was pumping enough to get my milk in with him. With my second I was MU...

Re: How crucial is the 2 yr wait?

I don't think the 2 year window is anything to worry so much over or quit your job over. Trying to concieve and all the other worries of pre-e are more than enough to keep us all worried. Yes it may help your chances, but I doubt it is going to make or break the pregnancy. Don't put so much pressure...

Re : 19 Weeks - Diagnosed with Hellp Syndrome

<t>That is very early for a diagnosis of HELLP and severe pre-e. Average time is 2 weeks from diagnosis to delivery. It is impossible to tell how it will progress though. I did have pre-e that early with my second pregnancy, but it did not progress and only my BP went up. <br/> <br/> I would recomen...

Re : Unsure of how to proceed with bed rest....

<t>With my second I was on partial bed rest and my son was sleeping a lot at that point still so it worked fine. He slept in until 9 and took a 3 hour nap during the day so I got a lot more rest. This time it is just so much more difficult. I would love to just let go of the things not getting done,...

Re : Things to do on Bedrest....

I am on bed rest and just finished a project I have wanted to do for YEARS. At Hallmark they have blank cookbooks, they are super cute. I bought one and put all my favorite recipes in there and organized them. Now they are all in once place, love it.
