Hey everyone, I have been keeping up with you all, just not posting much. I am hoping to get soem opinions :D
Okay where to start, with my Ds I had Pre-E, but was never truely diagnosed until I was in the hospital being induced due to super high BP. Whit DS my BP started rising close to 17 weeks and just kept getting worse...usually 140-150/90-100 something. I was very mismanaged, for example my Dr. put me on bed rest but then *forgot* he put me on bed rest and told me I didn't need to be, just to take it easy?? My last PG was horrible, I had constant swelling/headaches/stomach pain, and I feel quite confident that I had Pre-E for a while, even though they thought I had hypertension before I got PG which wasn't true.
Fast foward to now:
Right now I am 23 weeks. My BP has been consistently 100/70-80 since I was 6 weeks along. At my last appt it was 144/94. I know they fluctuate, but I have not had any high readings like this since my last pregnancy.Even the nurse said "Bethany OMG your BP is high!!!" I am still with the old doc and I am concerned because I am getting headaches that last days and will not go away with tylenol. His solution is to call me in a 'script for Tylenol 3?!?!?
Along with this, I fell last week, and was sent for a u/s. Well after the nurse did all my vitals, I went and read my chart. It said I Have partial placenta previa. Well my doc said NOTHING about it. I knwo that it can sometimes move, but isn't that a condition that needs to be monitored?
*sigh* feel like I am getting screwed here, but because of insurance issues, I don't have many options on switching doctors.
