I have been thinking for some time not that it is rather odd, Not once in the 6 weeks I was pregnant was I on bedrest i was able to do anything I wanted. I would go about my daily tasks while I was at home and when I was in the hospital I would walk around and go for walks out side. I never laid down at all really unless I was sleeping. My BP's were way to hogh now that I look back on it, and actually understand PE. I am very upset with this because, know what I know now is that laying on your left side reduced your BPs, and by the looks of it from stories on here bedrest is the best thing for PE. I am also haveing second thoughts as well about how early they induced me. I feel like they did it to soon. Something just feels off about the way I was treated. I am from Canada and I know alot of Drs. here don't deal with PE very often. But Ihave found one specialist. For the next time. I was also wondering I am 7 mo post partum. Is there any way I can get ahold of my medical records from the weeks prior to my sons birth.

Thank You~

With my 1st I was on bedrest in the hospital for 4 days before I seized and had to keep it super easy afterwards for 6 weeks. With my 2nd I was on for 5 weeks before an emergency c-section, no time in the hospital on bedrest with him just a few day visits. My 3rd and last pregnancy I was on bedrest starting with partial then to complete bedrest for 15 weeks with the last 2 weeks (admitted at 23 weeks) in the hospital, then an additional about 6 weeks post partum bedrest.
