Well, we have taken the big plunge.

My wife went to the OB yesterday and we are pregnant with number 5. They did the ultrasound and heard the heartbeat even though we are only about 6 weeks pregnant.

My wife saw a different perinatal doc before we got pregnant and she felt very confident that my wife will not have any issues with PIH as long as she stays on the BP meds. It scares me a little that this is a theory ... and it can only be tested by waiting another 20 some weeks and seeing what happens.

I am feeling confident and have only to look at my sweet little daughter (who is still a plump little ball of smiles) to remind myself that we say some bad stuff last time and still made it through okay.

Well, back to helping her deal with "all day morning sickness" [:)]

Hi again and congratulations on number 5! I pray that this pregnancy goes smoothly. All day morning sickness is no fun. Mine lasted for nearly 3 months. Hang in there....

Congratulations on the new pregnancy. It is a very
exciting time but,
because of the potential for pregnancy induced
hypertension, it is also
stressful. You, in a way, are in a good position,
though. You know
what this disease is and what to look out for. I'm
pretty sure that the
demand on your time during the pregnancy will tax you
physically and
emotionally, but your knowledge of the disease should
help put you and
your wife more at ease.

Keep vigilant, be strong and good luck.
