I am pregnant with my 6th and had severe postpartum PE with my previous child. He was born at 36 weeks and 5 days later I had what we believe to be a seizure and 6 days later I was in a CCU with bp 195/120 and fluid in my lungs. My pulse was 43 and I was put on nitroglycerin.
I'm 20 weeks with my 6th now (I'm 30 years old) and seeing a regular ob. I see that you suggest seeing a specialist but I live in southeastern Alabama (Andalusia area) and we do not have those kind of specialists nearby. I have 5 children that I homeschool so traveling 4 hours to see a dr. would be hard. BUT is it that neccessary? Should I still insist on seeing one? And would I still see my reg ob too and deliver here?
