New guy with Q's....

Are you worried about your partners pregnancy? Has your partner already had preeclampsia? Do you have advice for other dads who could be going through similar experiences as yourself? Post here!

Maggy, I'm so sorry. And I'm so glad you lived.

There's no known treatment for preeclampsia except delivery. In the US 29 weekers usually survive if they get top medical care, but that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. I don't know if they have NICUs anywhere in Mongolia.

Have you been seen by a doctor who could check you for diabetes or lupus or clotting problems?

Again, I'm so sorry. This disease is awful.

Thank you Caryn and Rosemary,

I and my hubby went to US for PE diagnostics and my second pregnancy, unfortunately because of financial inability we couldn't stay there until maturity. During the second week of gestation, my BP got increased to 150/230. However BP went down during my stay at hospital, I flew back to my country since I was afraid of dying in a foreign country/US. Here in Mongolia, medical diagnostics are pretty good. Unfortunately there's no much experience and medical care for 2.2lb infant. I also went to China and Thailand for a diagnostics. result says nothing serious expect high BP. By the way my lowest BP is now 100/150, average 110/165 highest 140/210. That makes me stressful mostly. i experienced a looot by visiting this page.

Thanks again all.

Dear Caryn and all,

Thank you very much for all the support and encouragement for us. There's something going on in my life for these days. Happy news is I got engaged. although I have already made my decision to try one more time for having my own baby before meeting my fiance. Bad news is my fiance doesn't know about my health situation, even he has no idea about this horrible disease. Another news is, i decided to give my birth in US, therefore saving for hospitalization there during the last 2 years. I also have already started preparing my body for the next pregnancy by having high dose of BP treatments and also a vitamin with as folic acid, calcium and iron. Please help me to contact with SMTM?
