Re: Superimposed Preeclampsia a second time?

The odds for subsequent preeclampsia pregnancy are usually better, meaning that if you do develop it it is usually milder and later in the pregnancy. THAT being said, there is always a chance of recurrence at the same time and/or earlier. You never really know. Plus, having chronic hypertension I th...

18 week ultrasound

So far things have been going well. I'm in the middle of the 2nd trimester dip (and it is very sweet), and have had to cut back on my Atenolol. The scan was great, uterine arteries have no notching!! (there was notching in one last time), and we are having a girl! I have a clinic appointment with my...

Re: Inaccurate BP Monitor or should I be worried?

How long have you had your monitor? With my last pregnancy my monitor was 3 years old, but used often. I remember it started giving me wacky 140's/90's readings when I was about 28 weeks along---off I went to L&D, there they were all great 110's/70-80's. I came home and took it again, 140s/90's. I g...

Re: almost 32 weeks and having trouble with my heparin shots

Re: Question about chronic hypertension

After the death of my daughter in 2007, my peri gave me a 50% chance of recurrence. Now after having delivered my last baby at 36 wks, my peri says I have a 25% chance of it. The chances are still there, especially because of my chronic hypertension.

Re: When do they do doppler scan?

with my son my peri did it when she was doing the anatomy scan at 20wks. There was notching in one uterine artery. That was the only time she did it. After that I just had regular growth checks & umbilical blood flow checks every 4 weeks.
