HI. I am now 12 wks pg with hyperemesis. I am on Zofran, Zantac, Ambien, Remeron and steroids.
At wk 8 my BP began to rise. My last HG pg, my BP was always dangerously low.
My BP is now up to 155/90. My norm is close to 100/70. My Ob said it is chronic hypertension, not preg induced because it came on so early. She is not sure it is from the steroids, as it began to rise before the steroids and continues to rise sinse I have been tapering from the steroids. She did say I was at an increased risk of pre e. I also have sugar in my urine and we have to watch for GD as well.
My niece had HG her entire PG. She developed high BP early on too and ended up delivering early due to PRE E.
Is there anything I could do to keep an eye on this? Are there any other EARLY sypmtoms I can watch for. MY OB says Pre e does not show up until after 24 wks.
Some other problems I have are I have an awful pain on my right, just under my ribs and it goes around to my back. My gallbladder checked out to be fine as my liver bloodwork was too. he pain can get very severe and at times causing very forcefull vomiting. I cannot sleep on my right.
Any input would be appreciated.
