Re : placental growth factor (PlGF) Research

That sounds like a very good question - I have not seen anything on it. How many other published studies have you come across on it? (sorry, I have not researched this one at all myself).

Re : protein didn't appear until labor started... ???

<t>Glad to hear that your doctor is being very cautious with you. I hope that you are as well [:)]. As has been pointed out, you can be diagnosed with PE well after delivery. However it may all be rather moot - the only 'benefit' to being at higher risk would be to get the attention of your doctor a...

Re : How often do you check your BP?

<t>We were never told to check BP's during our pregnancies but that may be because we started reporting in before they got a chance to tell us to do so... We checked on daily basis with #2 initially, then stopped for a while, then started daily again a few days before it went critical (lucky timing!...

Re : 14 weeks and starting to have swelling!!!!

<t>You may be happy to know that swelling in itself is not generally considered the best indicator of PE. In fact, it isn't part of the formal diagnotic criteria. In addition, the type of swelling that is generally most associated with PE is in the face and hands. This is not to say that there is no...

Re : Waiting to Induce?

<t>Interesting statement to come from a doc "no matter how high" - I'm sure there must be a practical limit there really as once BP's get up to a certain level folks start seriously worrying about strokes etc - I can't imagine that the docs would ignore that risk. I would suggest that further discus...

Re : Could use some reassurance...

<t>It is very hard to answer really - there certainly is a line between a healthy respect of this disease and being over anxious. In general, most of us would rather have you error on the side of caution, however if that means that you are stressing to the point where it is having ill effects in its...

Re : post partum preeclampsia

<t>There seems to be a great deal of mis-information out there regarding post-partum PE. And the misinformation exists as much in the medical community as outside. <br/> <br/> I don't know that I have much advice specific to finding a doctor for this particular issue, however the general advice seem...

Re : New and so many questions....

<t>Sounds like you have a lot going on there - sorry to hear that you are having a tough time - I'm curious about your baby's kidney function issues as well - that alone must have you quite concerned (certainly an area I know almost nothing about). I don't know what affect the Mag would have on your...

Re : test update

<t>Glad to read that your labs came back at decent levels - keep an eye on things and don't be afraid to pop by L&D and/or call your doc if you show any new or worse PE signs/symptoms. <br/> <br/> You are right - it's great to be at 34 weeks and know that you can deliver now with far less risk t...

Re : 24 hr urine result questions

<t>Stacy has the right diagnostic criteria there - to comment on the volume question as it seems to have come up a couple times here lately.. <br/> <br/> I've been told that the "average" output for a 24hr pregnant woman is somewhere around 1500. HOWEVER there isn't such a thing as an average pregna...
