Am I being neurotic? Or legitimately concerned?

Hi, guys! I just had my 28 week appointment on Friday, and my BP was 136/90. No protein in the urine, but I'd gained 9 pounds in the previous 3 weeks. The doctor didn't seem *too* concerned, just told me to watch what I'm eating, and to watch out for the warning signs of PE (since I had it with my f...

Vomiting and headache since 4:30am

Hi, guys, It's killing me to write this post. I'm miserable. I started vomiting at 4:30am, and kept vomiting until my doctor called in a scrip for Zofran at midday. He said it was probably a stomach bug. But my head is killing me, and I have a low grade temp. (100.9) I've taken 500 mg Tylenol, and t...

Re: Okay, so what's the deal with headaches

Thank you so much! That's totally what I needed. Someone to say, "It's probably just a headache." Sometimes I read other stuff and start making myself panic, which is never a good thing.

Thank you!!

Okay, so what's the deal with headaches

I've been having brutal headaches all day. I've also been keeping a BP log since last Tuesday, and while I've had a few 140/90, the average is around 135/85. (My body likes to taunt me.) The doctor said to call if the BP was over 150/100. While I've had a few over 140, I haven't gone over 150. But m...

Re: Is anyone checking the boards today? Please help if you

I'm not in L&D!! I'm so sorry if you guys were worried. I've just been taking care of my husband (knee surgery) and trying to stay chill. I went to the doctor on Monday and my pressure was 130/80. Not great, but not alarming, either. The doctor is having me do a 24 hour urine this weekend, bloodwork...

Re: Is anyone checking the boards today? Please help if you

So I have an appointment tomorrow morning, at 8:45am. They wanted me to come in immediately, this morning, but my husband was having surgery today, so I just couldn't do it. I went to the local CVS a few minutes ago and used their machine to take my blood pressure, just in case my home one is off ki...

Re: Is anyone checking the boards today? Please help if you

Thanks for all the help, guys!! My BP last night, after lying on the couch dozing for an hour, went to 135/85. It was the same this morning. I'm going to call my doctor's office as soon as they open and see what I want to do. I feel like an idiot, because I cancelled my 18 week appointment (which wo...

Re: Is anyone checking the boards today? Please help if you

I laid down for an hour and took it again, and it's 140 / 85, which isn't great, but isn't making me worry as much as the 165 was. I'm going to give it a few more hours before making the final decision whether to call the doc.

Thank you so much for writing back so quickly! Have a great holiday!

Is anyone checking the boards today? Please help if you can.

Hi, guys, I'm 18 weeks along. I had severe PE in my first pregnancy. So far with this one, my BP has been normal (125/70). I have a home BP Monitor, and I check it once a week. This week, suddenly it's 140/80. That was Friday. Today, at Easter dinner with the in-laws, I had excruciating headaches. S...

Re: Six weeks along...

Thanks so much for the reply! I do have a high risk OB now, and I feel completely comfortable with him (and the rest of his practice). They are so thorough, and conscientious, and compassionate. I really lucked out when I found them with my last pregnancy. I also have a home BP kit, so I've been try...
