Re : 29wk4 visit - PE in the wings?

<t>Rest as much as you can and maybe do a few things to keep your mind off things. I had a bp spike a few weeks ago and my protein was slightly over 300. They put me on bedrest and my bps are great and my protein is down to 275. When I get a little stressed my bps shoot up. Please rest and do someth...

Re : A bump in the road

At home a get a few over 140 but not consistently so I do not take insulin. I really watch what I eat. I watch the carbs and the sugar. I am keeping you in...

Re : annoyed at an ultrasound tech...ugh

<t>I am so sorry you had this experience. Last year when when we lost our baby at 12 weeks the tech did not say anything and went to get the doctor. The doctor told us they did not see a heart beat. I am so sorry this was a frightening experience for you. I do not know why they did not tell you anyt...

Re : starting to feel like the boy who cried wolf

<t>I understand how you feel. I have been to the L&D on time. My BP was up and it went down after one day being there. They kept me for 3 days and did a 24 hour urine and that we slightly elevated. I have been on bedrest since. I get anxious with things. I called them this morning about pressure...

Re : The final dx on me (trigs)

I am sending you (((hugs))). I had a miscarriage last year in May. Our baby had severe spina bifida and did not survive. We think it was the MTHFR that caused it. They did not finding anything in the genetic testing. Keeping you in our thoughts.

Re : Nearly 23 week appointment.....UPDATE

<t>I am keeping you in my thoughts. Have they thought about putting you on bedrest. This has helped with my pregnancy a great deal. I have gotten to 31 weeks on bedrest. I went on bedrest for weeks ago due to trace protein in 24 our and a bp spike. Everything is going well now.<br/> <br/> Elaine</t>

Re : Just found out I have GD :-(

<t>I have GD and it is controlled with diet. I chart mine and take it to the doctor each time. This is very helpful to the doctor. Sweets really bump my sugars up so I eat sugar free sweets. Charting helps me to fine out what make my sugars go up. Then I try to avoid those things or eat very small p...
