high blood pressure at 27 + 4. Possible pre eclampsia again?

Postby katy-anne » Fri May 20, 2016 06:47 pm

I had preeclampsia with my son who was delivered at 36+0 via emergency c section in 2010. I'm currently 27+4 with my second child. Things had been fine until today when my blood pressure is at 140/90. My doctor is having me do the 24 hour urine collection this weekend then I am following up next week. I am very scared that my baby girl won't make it. I feel ok right now just very tired. I'm supposed to take it easy but am not on bed rest. I've been on baby aspirin the entire pregnancy to try and help prevent this. My doctor may put me on medication when I go in again if my blood pressure is still high. My son was in the NICU for a week but is a healthy 6 year old. This is just so early. I was more than 30 weeks when my blood pressure went up with him. I was hoping to not go through this again.
