Hi everyone, my name is Shannon and I am from the Greenville area as well. I have been checking out the website for a couple of weeks, but finally decided to sign up since we are considering TTC again. I was diagnosed with PE and severe PIH at 29 weeks and put in the hospital at 32 weeks due to major migrane, seeing spots, and a BP of 210/120. I was induced 2 weeks later because the BP was still 160/90. Owen weighed 5 pounds 9 ounses and spent 3 weeks in the NICU due to underdeveloped lungs, but it's impossible to tell now, he is a big boy with no health problems. I wish I had known about this website sooner, especially when I was diagnosed and the weeks that followed, because as most of you know DR's are not very forthcoming with information on PE and PIH, and I really could of used some support from people who have been through the same thing. I am anticipating getting to know all of you.
