That is scary! I wish they would have kept you in the hospital.

Will your MFM consult with the cardiologist?

Thanks for the update, but I'm sorry you weren't able to share better news! Let us know what the cardiologist says.

Update on Tia and labor and delivery stay

Postby chubbiesmom » Mon Sep 26, 2011 10:44 am

Friday i felt great for a change. Saturday on my way to work it all started over again. Pain radiating up my neck into my jaw, followed by yawing and then left sided weakness. I made it thru my appointment I had scheduled, but since I need to buy a new bp machine I went to the fire department around the corner to get my bp checked because I felt aweful. My bp was 164/108. They said they really really advised against me leaving and took me by ambulance to the hospital. So I was passed around there. My bp finally came down to 135/89 then settled back to normal after about 6 hrs to 112/64. I also now have developed a haeart murmur and my heart keeps skipping beats(pvc) now too. My bp stays good as long as I'm in bed but starts to go up when I get up. They discharged me Sunday evening with me promising to go to a cardiologist. I feel like a walking disaster. Just hoping to keep this baby baking as long as possible.
