Feeling much better

So went to the dr on thursday and was finally started on labetelol 300mg BID. Took the first dose and it made me kinda sleepy but when I woke I was feeling much better. It has knocked my blood pressure from 140-50 over 90-100 down to 130/80ish. I can't believe how much better I feel. I don't even se...

update Dr appointment

Yay! that man asked if I had been taking my BP pills and I said what BP pills? I would love some. And I finally got some. Maybe I will feel less crappy. I also felt the need to tell that woman that I did not care for his nurse for variace reason's. Todays would be that she took my BP with a thigh cu...

Re: made it to double digits

actually not on my feet at all at work. Sit at a desk and usually work on homework. I guess the sitting with my feet down are causing the swelling.

Re: We made it! 32 weeks!

Wasn't it just yesterday that you were at week 24. It seems time has flown. I am very happy for you. Lets hear it for another boring 8 weeks. Glad to see that everything is going so well.

made it to double digits

I am so glad that I have finally made it to 99 days till my due date. Wasn't sure I would make it. I progressively feel worse as time goes on. BP is slowly creeping up and legs have blossomed with some lovely edema. I am planning on asking my dr to write me a note to restrict my days at work down to...

Re: Still no signs of PE, but I have anemia

Well at least an iron tablet is better than the two alternatives. Also it absorbs better if you take it with a source of vitmain C like some OJ and it can be really constipating so be on the look out. You may have to add a stool softner if you are on it long term. But YAY! For no swelling or pree. H...

having a blah week

So I went in last week due to having plus three pitting edema to my legs and spikes in my bp. Dr ran all the labs which came back great except for my 24 hour urine having a little bit of protein at 330. Just as a precaution he is seeing me weekly-I guess I looked horrible at the visit. I am so exhau...

Re: MFM?

I say that it wouldn't hurt. Two heads are better than one. They specialize in high risk pregnancies. Hope the other ladies get some more definative answers than I am able to give. Hope you bp stablizes.

Re: What labs to ask Dr for?

well I called the Dr today as my swelling was really bad for this early. I kept apologizing which he told me there was no need for. Its nice to have a dr that doesn't yell at you for calling. He saw me and ordered some lab work. They took my bp but since it was high made me lay on my left side. I qu...

What labs to ask Dr for?

This is a silly question and one I should know as a nurse but for some reason I am coming up blank on what labs I should ask the Dr to run at my next visit. I am starting to have higher BP's 130/90's (usual non pregnant 105/60), some mild pitting edema in my legs and feet, generalized swelling every...
