Another update- 27 weeks- much better this time!

<t>Hi all,<br/> Had my 27 week checkup yesterday and things are looking pretty good! I was very happy because my BP was 114/74! So it was down from the last time when I was starting to get worried.

Stressed that this is beginning of pree again?

<t>I am so upset and stressed. I just had a checkup at 25 weeks and my blood pressure was up from my last visit at 23 weeks. Today it was 124 over 84. I know that this is not technically out of the "ok" range, but it is on the high end and is higher than my last visit when it was about 115 over 75. ...

Re : Magnesium Sulfate Toxicity in Baby

<t>I understand your concern. I was on mag for several days and the NICU said my son's levels were really high.

Re : appointment update- swelling question

<t>Thanks guys. That is encouraging to hear. I think I am so paranoid about it because I consider swelling/water retention to be one of the first signs of my preeclampisa the last time. I did end up with bad swelling in face and hands as well but I seem to remember it started showing up in the legs ...
