Re : HELLP really does present like Gall Bladder attack

The pain is a few times, sho...

How is everyone doing?

<t>How is everyone doing? For you ladies that delivered recently, did you get pre-e/HELLP again? If so, how early or late and severe was it compared to your previous? <br/> Pregnant ladies, how are you doing?

Re : When did you start home BP checks?

Re : HELLP and epidural.

Re : What is a normal BP for each individual.

My OB said 160/100 but I don't feel comfortable with that. Each person is different. I had severe PIH at 12 weeks with Darren so catchin...
