How accurate are Doppler Studies?

So at 29 weeks 4 days I saw my MFM for the first time during this pregnancy, I was told blood flow to the baby was not good. After further talking with my regular OB, he explained to me that my placenta was working harder to supply the blood to the baby because there was resistance in the cord but t...

Blood Flow Not Good????

So yesterday was the first time I have seen the MFM during this pregnancy, at 29 weeks 3 days. My BP was good for me on labetolol 100mg twice a day and no protein, and my latest 24 hr urine came back at 126. So everything is going okay for the most part but when he came in to see me, he said on the ...

BP Meds making BP too low?

I am 27 weeks pregnant tomm, at my last ob visit (last thursday), my ob upped my bp meds, basically just doubling my dose. My bp was in the high 130's-low 140's/70's-80's, when previously during the pregnancy on my low dose my bp was 120's/70's. Now my bp seems to be in the 120's-130's/50's-60's. My...

17 week appt.

I just thought I would update :) I had my 17 week appt today and everything looked great! BP was 120/80 (which is really REALLY good for me even on meds), and I just feel so confident this time around that I will have a termie. The only thing that my doc seemed a little concerned about is the fact t...

Re: Stopping LDA

That is why I had to stop taking it in my second pregnancy, my MFM felt that because of my high bp and that the pressure of the blood flowing to the placenta was already so great that the aspirin might cause me to have an abruption. This pregnancy is different however, my bp is normal with a low dos...

Re: LDA causing spotting in early pregnancy?

Well I havent got ahold of my doctor yet (he has been in surgery all day) to see if I should stop the lda based on my homocystine levels. So I am still taking it, and frankly I am uncomfortable with not taking it even if he says i shouldnt but he is the doctor. The spotting is just a little every da...
