Amanda, I don't know what to say about the delivery criteria- on one hand, I can definitely understand it- chances are Maija will do just fine until you start showing signs of severe disease, but on the other, I can understand your desire to make sure she's safe.
The thing that is really concerning me is taking those pressures lying down. Tim, could you please print out this thread from our experts on how blood pressure should be taken? My worry is that those blood pressures they're using to decide when to deliver aren't reliable.
If you show them the info from the medical board, and they still take your pressures lying down- insist that each and every time they decline- to note, with their name and title, that patient has requested having blood pressure taken sitting up that they declined.
I wish you could find another opinion- but being inpatient sort of puts a damper on that, huh? Perhaps you could find another name from the http://www.nasshp.org site to come in and do a second opinion? Maybe you could release your medical records to another doc to review? I'm definitely thinking about you, honey.
