Thanks for your responses guys.
In my first pregnancy, my OB did not refer my care to a MFM. In fact, he didn't even realize what was going on until I went into pre term labor and went to L&D and they realized my BP was high (this was at 29 weeks.) *I* knew my BP was NOT normal at 17 weeks when it was still considered "normal" - like 135/70. Still great pressure, but I used to run 120/60 and I knew it was wrong. I was brushed off as "white coat syndrome" (and puh-leeze, my mom and sister are both nurses and I love all things medical, I do NOT get nervous when seeing the doc.) My doc was doing the rounds and saw my chart and called me back in for a 24 hour observation because he followed his gut.
That being said, I cancelled my first appointment and called a practice that has a MFM on staff. I will be seen by the OB group AND the MFM because I feel better being with someone who might
know more than I do about PE.
Plus, the more preparations I have in place, the less of a chance I will have PE right?
Murphy's Law and all...
