Re : BP almost diagnostic, then down again - WWYD???

<t>Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your input! <br/> <br/> Thursday morning (yesterday) in the doctor's office both nurses got 148/90, so the decision was easy. We induced with cytotec and breaking my water. No mag this time, no pitocin, no epidural, and no PE complications (one reading 163/92, o...

BP almost diagnostic, then down again - WWYD???

<t>Hi everyone! I need some opinions! I need to say up front that I know I am very lucky. I am constantly amazed and saddened by the stories of so many women here who have had early and severe disease! I am almost embarrased to ask my question!<br/> <br/> I am 36 1/2 weeks into my second pregnancy. ...

Re : Scheduled Induction for PIH?

<t>I'm interested in what your doctor says! <br/> <br/> I've been told 37 weeks at the absolute latest if you actually get pre-eclampsia, and your risk for developing PE is higher with gestational hypertension.<br/> <br/> If you never develop any other PE indicators - proteinuria, fetal indicators, ...

Re : Flaxseed oil safe during pregnancy?

<r>I'd read that flaxseed oil has a lot of omega-3s, which is one of the things nutrition people (not sure how scientific vs earthy-chanty) think might help prevent pre-eclampsia. I've actually considered adding it to my diet now that I'm pregnant again. (When are you due, btw? [:)] Congratulations!...

Re : "positive communication" w caregivers - examples?!

<t>Thanks everyone for your replies so far! You have good suggestions! I've been reading about pre-eclampsia, pregnancy, natural childbirth, and other childbirth complications, for about 2000 hours since my son's birth, so hopefully that will make a big difference. Though I do get the feeling from s...

"positive communication" w caregivers - examples?!

<t>Hi everybody. I am finally, convincingly pregnant with #2 - I think I even feel her (?) move, and I'm 16 weeks today. <br/> <br/> My first pregnancy was very frightening for me, not because of PE, but because I wasn't able to get straight answers out of my doctor or the nurses. I couldn't underst...

Re : Possible move to KY...

<t>I'm near Lexington, also. Trying to balance wanting a natural birth for #2 but still cover all bases if I get sick again. I either find docs who are terrified of the disease, or midwives who don't have a clue. Feeling a little anxious and frustrated! <br/> <br/> son born 7/18/03, induced at 37 we...

Re : magnesium sulfate

<t>Just had to add my two cents :->. I had ONLY swelling and high blood pressure - 140s/90s, no protein in my urine, blood work okay, no other symptoms, but my doctor put me on mag during labor and 24 hours after delivery. <br/> I had a doctor with horrible communication skills, btw, who didn't even...
