I was following a girl on one of the WebMD boards who was having problems with pre-e at the end of her pregnancy - it did not seem like she or her OB were taking it that seriously - I kept trying to get her to check out things over here - it is so much more persuasive to get your info from you ladies. She ended up okay thank goodness. I hope your gal is okay too!

I am the exact same way! As soon as someone mentions something about BP's I am all over them about the symptoms to watch for, etc! My family has called me on occation about my problems and symptoms because so and so's daughter/wife/neice is pregnant and is having some problems. Like I am an expert....lol Nope, girls, not just you, I am the same way!

Catherine,
I swear whenever I am talking to a friend who tells me about someone who is prego and is very swollen, or has other symptoms, I get right up on my soapbox. People think I am obsessed, but the way I look at it; they can all think I am a freak mama, if I help someone that's all that matters!! So you go girl!!!

Well, I've sent another poor pg lady off to the doctor's office. LOL On baby center she said she was really swollen and had been having a headache all day. So I asked if she had had any visual disturbances or a racing/pounding heart (just probing, not wanting to send someone to the dr and have them be normal, ya know). She has been having a racing pulse and said she felt like she'd been running up stairs all day. I honestly don't know how seriously she took me though she did log off and say she would call the dr (hopefully go in) after eating dinner. I hate the "I'm a zealot" feeling...LOL And, so many people say my BP was fine a month ago. Yah, and that has how much bearing on today? Sorry, a bit worked up I guess.[;)] So, do you ladies feel like you bring up preeclampsia any time pregnancy comes into a conversation? I swear it seems like I do. And, what do you tell people?
