Mom's Name: Alicia
City/State: Dayton. Ohio
Age (opt): 42
Dad's Name: Patrick
Boy or Girl: Girl
Name of baby: Finley Davis
Date of Birth: 10/05/05
Weight: 6 lb 9 oz
Length: 18.9"

Diagnosis: chronic hypertension(@18wks)Monitored twice weekly. Hospitilized at 32 weeks for possible PE. PE ruled out but BP still high.
Status: Induced vaginal delivery @39 wks due to increased BP. Baby was born with no problems but developed jaundice and was re-admitted for 24 hours of phototherapy. 5 days after delivery I took BP and it was 180/107. Went to hospital and was admitted and treated for severe post partum pe. I had no idea that you could get pe after delivery, as I was always told that "delivery was the cure." I'm not 2 weeks after delivery and on BP medication until this resolves.
