Question about induction vs. c-section

<t>Hi all,<br/> Now that I'm starting to get my mind wrapped around this whole PIH/PE situation, I'm beginning to have questions galore! I guess the whole thing is just starting to hit me. I hope I can draw a bit on the experiences of others out there.<br/> <br/> My first question is what are the ch...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>As far as an action plan, my doc wants me to call if my BP goes over 140/90. If that happens, I'm afraid I'll be back in the hospital. Also, she asked me to take my BPs while lying down on my side. I thought that this gives you false lows???? Since being on the meds, my BPs have ranged between 11...

Can I join the club?

<t>Got released from the hospital last night, and am starting on my first official day of bedrest. I'm 32 weeks today, and my doctor would like to get the baby to 37 weeks.<br/> <br/> Here's what happened...<br/> <br/> For about the past month, I had noticed some pretty serious swelling. I wasn't to...

Re : Has anyone taken Aldomet (methyldopa)

<t>My doc just put me on Aldomet. I had my first two doses in the hospital. Didn't notice any significant change after the meds, but I'm reserving judgement, because if the BPs don't go down, I could wind back up in the hospital on Magnesium Sulfate, and I've heard that that whole route is NO FUN AT...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>Well, I haven't posted again because I've spent the last 24 hours in L&D. I went to my doc's office, and my BP there was 150/100, so they admitted me immediately. Upon arrival at the hospital, they found trace protein in my urine. While there, we did a NST, an ultrasound (baby looked great on...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>Rachel,<br/> I'm sorry, I should have mentioned my pre-pregnancy BP (and actually my BP up until a few days ago) was reliably in the neighborhood of 110/70. That's the reason that I was so shocked when the nurse said that it had climbed to 140/90. I've never had any problems with high BP, the opp...

A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>I'm 31 weeks, and went to my doc's yesterday for a routine appointment. I've been swelling quite a bit over the last month, but doc hasn't been concerned because my BP was decent. Yesterday it was up at 140/90. They had me lay down and take it again, and after a few minutes, it lowered a bit to 1...
