Newbie - 1st Trimester PE

Postby chipmunk » Tue Dec 09, 2003 08:12 pm

Hi everyone! I am currently almost 10 weeks pregnant with my 4th child. I have a little girl, who will be 7 years old in the spring, and twin sons in Heaven, lost to severe complications of TTTS and PIH.[:(] I was diagnosed with PE yesterday, after several high readings and finally the discovery of too much protein in my urine. I am currently on bedrest (full, hopefully if the meds kick in, I get to go to modified next week![:D]), and taking Methyldopa twice a day. My BP monitor should be here Friday so I can begin home monitoring, which will be a huge relief! I look forward to meeting everyone!

ETA: How do I get an avatar? The spot in my profile change doesn't show anything, just the word avatar and a blank square.
