Just came back from the Peri visit

Well we just got back from the Dr. and I do mean we just walked though the door. Got some good news to share. My Dr.s last name is Weiner. I am sure there is a joke in there somewhere. But none the less this guy wrote a few books on what meds are safe during pg. And according to his findings his preffered method of controlling high bp is LABETALOL!! Which I have been on since Carly was born. I am also on Methyldopa right now and he says it is not as good as some obgyns claim. Cause it is old and all that. And with the two together it is a weird combo. So I called my Cardo dr to see if we can go off the Methyldopa and switch to a Calcium Blocker Nifipedine. So Yippee! We looked at my history and we are gonna to the big blood test where they take 15 viles of blood to check for everything from Lupus to Protein levels. So hopefully if everything comes back normal there we will be placed on a good level for having another baby. Yeah will be at a higer risk then someone who doesn't have high bp. But if we can get the number down I will have a small risk of something really really going wrong. His thinking is that we can make it to 40 weeks. Just think we can make it an will not have to worry ourselves into a problem. So a few more weeks of tweeking my meds and we are off to BDing!!!

Susan,
Dr. Weiner. Ha! That will be hard not to laugh when calling his name. I can't help it, I enjoy lowbrow humor...
Anyway, that is great that you had a good appt. It feels good doesn't it, to be reassured? Good luck with all the bloodwork.

Susan,

I'm so glad you had a great appt!... Funny about Dr. Weiner one of my doctors is Dr. Gross (I laugh when I see him LOL!!)

Good luck on the blood work!!. Did he mention starting prenatal vits that are high is folic acid?...

Glad that the visit went well, Susan. (Sorry, I'm immature on so many levels. Still have laughter in my head about Drs. Weiner and Gross.) [:)]

But yay - keep us posted!

Glad everything went well at the doctors visit. It sure does help to be reassured. I didn't get all the tests done and now I am thinking I may want to have that done. Let us know how the tests come back.

At least Dr. Weiner sees women and not men![;)] I don't think my DH would go see a doc with the name Weiner. hee hee

Glad to hear your appt went well and you are on the way to TTC! Hope all goes smoothly and we are hearing about a pg soon!![:D]
