BP question

<t>I have been lurking on these boards for a while now, and read all posts. Something is bothering me here about BP figures. I keep reading that people have been put on BP medication when their readings reach 140/90. My BP was at that level throughout pregnancy and went up at 26+4 to 185/125. I was ...

Re : question of the day re: pregnancy ideals

<t>I always knew that mine would not be an 'ideal' pregnancy, in fact it was a miracle I was pregnant at all. I had been through fertility drugs with my ex husband, and was told that IVF was the only way it might happen. We divorced, and when I met Chris he knew from the start about my problems and ...

Re : Empty Arms

<t>I know just how you feel. Ellie should have been here for her 1st Christmas, instead we put flowers on her grave on Christmas Day. No words can begin to describe how that felt. We are here for each other, but we feel the pain differently. I dreamt about Ellie last night, she was kicking me....she...

Re : Questions about IUD's

<t>I had my Mirena IUD put in 27 October and I had cramps for about a week afterwards. Now I get the odd cramp and some spotting but no full blown AF which is such a relief for me. Prior to my pregnancy and PE I had suffered terribly with very heavy,painful,10 days to 2wks AF. For me it is good not ...

Re : Literature on Preclampsia

<t>Further to the post by Ileana...I have the Pre-eclampsia The Facts book from APEC in the Uk. Yes it is out of date, published in 1991 with reprint in 1996 but it is very readable, and there is also an update added when it was reprinted.<br/> Sue<br/> <br/> Sue (40)<br/> Chris (37)<br/> DD Eleanor...

Re : Literature on Preclampsia

I think the out of print one you mention is probably Pre-Eclampsia, the Facts, published by APEC. It is still possible to get copies from APEC office in UK.

Re : Ovulation Tests

Thought I would just add to this.....I actually had a negative test re ovulation from the hospital, then on cd40 was persuaded to do a pregnancy test and it was positive!!! I was about to start fertility treatment again, but they got it wrong!
