Re : Pulse rate related to bp?

<r>I received the "high cardiac output" diagnosis that Sonja did with the same perinatologist, along with the explanation about cardiac output and its effect on pulse and blood pressure. In my case also, the atenolol got my pulse down (as well as my blood pressure), and I did not get preeclampsia un...

Re : What can I expect at the hypertension clinic?

<t>Hello Kristina,<br/> <br/> My husband took the whole morning/afternoon off when we had our appointments at this clinic. All of our questions were answered patiently, and we never left without peace of mind. When you are in the exam room, you are the only patient in the world to this perinatologis...

Re : Hi All

<t>Hi Amie,<br/> <br/> Sorry to hear that you have gestational diabetes, I know that it's not what anyone wants to have when they're pregnant. When I was pregnant with my twins, I had gestational diabetes and (post-partum) preeclampsia. My peri controlled the GD with diet. First I met with his nurse...

Re : Infertility Treatments & Risk of Multiples

<t>Hi Jen,<br/> <br/> You've already gotten a lot of good advice. What I found in my case to make all the difference (as part of an answer to my prayers), was a team of two world-class doctors to manage me preconception: a reproductive endocrinologist/infertility doctor and a perinatologist. My peri...

Re : IUGR Babies and TTC

<t>Dear mommyof1,<br/> <br/> Along the same lines as Sonja & Erin, I agree about seeing a high-risk obstetrician to answer all of your questions. Mine was beyond excellent and gave us peace of mind. All of us are different, and this is where a high-risk OB can help you out the most in terms of y...

Re : anyone doing PIO after FET??

<t>Hi Erica ~<br/> <br/> Sorry to hear about your sore butt; a lot of us who did the PIO injections had the same problem (including myself).<br/> <br/> I had the huge welts, too, and my husband called the fertility clinic to see what we could do to make it better. They also told us to switch cheeks ...

Re : BP meds while pregnant

<t>Hello Amy ~<br/> <br/> Another atenolol girl here, on it before and throughout the pregnancy. For me, it was wonderful: I had no issues with the medication (my blood pressure readings were ~ 115/75), and my twins were born at 38.4 weeks, healthy, with no growth issues (they are still growing well...

Re : For those who have had cardiac output monitoring

<t>Hi Michelle,<br/> <br/> Heather gave you a good link. I had UltraCOM monitoring done also. I am not a doctor, only a patient who has had outstanding success with the UltraCOM monitoring. In my case, I was and am still on medication because of high cardiac output, fast pulse, and chronic hypertens...

Re : Anyone else on Atenolol?

<t>Hi Stacy,<br/> <br/> Me too, me too... I was on atenolol before, during, and after my pregnancy, and still am on it now. My dosages were anywhere from 25 mg/day to 100 mg/day during pregnancy, and there were NO adverse side effects for my twins. My perinatologist also uses a machine called the Ul...
