WELCOME! [:D] I'm so glad you are more informed and receiving good care this time around. Are you on BP meds now? BEdrest? THose pressures aren't very great! As I'm sure you're aware. Wow, you've had 4 bouts with PE/PIH. Have you been tested for any underlying causes yet? Perhaps after this pregnancy comes to a successful end [;)].
My name is Catherine (just a little FYI) and I am currently pg with #2 after having PIH and Oligohydramnios with my first. Not sure if it will come back or not, though I too am obese (hate to say that outloud...or type it outloud[:I] anyway lol) and could see myself as a candidate for chronic hypertension, though I am still quite young. Anyway, I am about 8 wks by lmp but think that is off a bit and I'll be finding out *HOPEFULLY* at the dr's tomorrow with my first apt and ultrasound.
I look forward to getting to know you too!
