Re: Anyone feel pulse all over body?

Right before my water broke, I had a very racy pulse. I didn't make to much at the time. But it was probably another sign of pre-e. Two weeks prior to my delivery I had the swelling, headaches, etc. and they chalked it up to normal signs of pregnancy. After I delivered right before they diagnosed me...

Re: No protein in urine?????

I presented at 38 weeks with severe swelling ( pitting edema in my feet), right upper quadrant pain, and headaches. When I went into my OB, they told me not to worry as these were all "normal signs of pregnancy". Well 3 days after I delivered pre-e really showed itself with elevated liver enzymes, l...

Higher BP's only at the doctor's office.....Is it white coat

Hi Ladies, I had PP Pre-e with my first son. My BP's returned to normal ( one teens-one twenties) and I am no longer on any BP meds. When I go to the doctors, they always get high readings when they check my BP's 130's-140/70-90. I get so nervous when I have to have my BP checked. It's the same offi...

BP meds and Bedrest.....Still pre-e?

Hi Ladies,

If you were on BP meds for BP management and bedrest, did these interventions decrease/prolong/prevent pre-e from presenting itself?

Re: 8 weeks postpartum & still feel sick

I too had PP pre-e. It took me a long time to feel like "me" again. I was very fatigued and my body always felt very weak. My BP returned to normal range at 6months PP. I did not have nausea/vomiting PP. My appetite was certainly not ideal because of the all of the meds I was on. They made me feel h...

Re: New here..help with some issues

I had PP pre-e and was on very high doses of medications ( Labetalol 800mg daily and Hydralazine 145 mg daily). I was weaned off the meds over a period of 6 months. What you are feeling is what I felt too. I was very fatigued on the labetalol. Even on the low doses, I was always exhausted. Walking, ...

With pre-e, how can you tolerate labor?

Hi Ladies, I developed PP pre-e with our first baby. My husband and I are thinking of TTC our second, however, I m very nervous about laboring if I develop pre-e again.

Acupunture and Pre-e/HBP?

Hi Ladies,
I came across an article in a magazine that discussed acupuncture lowering HBP in pregnancy.

Has anyone used acupuncture when having HBP? If so, did you notice any changes in your readings?

Do you have to have protein in urine to have pre-e?

Hi Ladies, I was told I had pre-e but at times I wonder if it was PIH. My BP went through the roof 220/100 3 days PP. I only ever had trace protein in my urine. However, my liver enzymes were off when my BP was that high 3 days PP and my platelets were slightly low. Not anything significant but they...
