I agree with Sherry and Anne, they are right!

What it is called doesn't matter half as much as how they treat you and your condition.

And, my bp was just kind of randomly jumping around and I was already having placenta problems! Not even a steady high bp like yours! H

As if you needed one more "I agree," I agree. I was nowhere near 150/111 when I was hospitalized with full-blown PE. However they want to treat it, you can't just wait for it to go down. Take care!

At my peris office on Wed, it was 150/100. He said that is not too high. Unless the diastolic was 110 or more on a reg basis, he would not med right away. He also wants to wait until I am completely off the steroids to see if there is a difference.
I will be on 5 mg on monday for 7 days and then be done. They also want me to bring in my bp cuff to be sure it is accurate.
He definatly seems to be a " lets wait and see" type of guy.
Thanks guys

I am still new to pe ans am learning all that I can, but I do know that my bp generaly ran high. In fact they actually refused to give me birth control at a regular annual becaue it was high just a year or so ago. When I became pregnant it seemed to maintain 130/77, then in the second trimester it was 110/70 constantly. Now it has began to jump quite a bit even spiking 150/100-the doctor immediately reacted and started tests. I'm telling you this because it you started with a low bp pre preg and now it is so high you should definately be treated. It seems funny to me that they would let it go so long now. THey have found that my bp jump thus far is either streess related or it is the onset of pre-e(but unfortunately we have to wait to see). You definately need to be treated, and as I found out sometimes you have to demand it.
I hope that this helps you in some way.
