I have a question I was hoping you all had some thoughts on. I am 29 weeks pregnant, and last week when I went in to the OB thinking I was getting the flu (headache, blurry vision) my bp was 160/ 110. It was high the week before too, but she wrote it off as being stressed about the traffic on the way over. I have no protien in my urine, but I have to do a 24 hour test to make sure. She said its probobly just PIH, and not to worry about it, just to rest whenever I could. All well and good, but I am supposed to take the bar exam in a month. I am not worried about it, I don't stress about tests and my job won't start until September anyway (plently of time to take in July), but I don't want to do anything to make the situation worse. Does anyone know what effect stress (even good stress) has on PIH or preeclampsia developing or getting worse? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
