Im seeing a reg ob but a high risk is over seeing me( not sure what that really means) I go back to the dr tomorrow and I'm going to see if I can see the high risk.

Are you being seen by an MFM (high risk doc)? if not I would absolutely ask your OB for a referral. I think your right to be leery of not being taken seriously, especially given your history.

i had my son in April 2011 at 34 weeks due to PE/HELLP. i had to be careflighted to a bigger hospital and had a emergnancy c section. i felt like my dr blew off my symptoms for weeks and then i almost died before they caught what was going on. i found out that i was pregnant when my son was 6 months old. i have been on labetalol since delivering my son i never had high blood pressure till the end of my pregnancy with him. this pregnancy my pressures have been 120-130/80 nothing high. i did a 24 hour urine at 22 weeks and my protein was 180 and starting at 23 weeks my pressures have slowly gone up to 140-160/90-100. i am now 28 weeks and my protein was almost 500 last week. i have been having headaches, blurry vision dizzyness chest pain swelling and again i feel like my dr is blowing me off. what is considered PE and would u change drs? im kinda at a loss on what to do. ive also had positive FFN since 25 weeks
