Re : 2nd preg w/ history of PE, heart failure

<t>This patient relates a story which appears to represent severe preeclampsia manifested by postpartum pulmonary edema. Patients with this degree of swelling are best managed with lasix immediately postpartum and for 5-10 days thereafter so that pulmonary edema rarely develops. Blood pressure contr...

Re : Anxiety making doctor gloss over my symptoms?

<t>I would be concerned about the weight gain, the preHTN levels of BP, the shortness of breath and the general sense of "not being right." This has to be taken in context of gestational age. How well is the baby growing?<br/> <br/> They ordered an ECHO and PFT's which suggests that they are paying ...

Re : surrogacy and preeclampsia

The REI folks keep data on their ART pregnancies; perhaps a query to them might yield some meaningful information. I am not sure how to get this, but the ABOG might be a start.

Re : surrogacy and preeclampsia

<t>I believe that there is a literature related to donor gametes, but relates more to premature ovarian failure where the recipient can be expected to have some accelerated vascular aging - one donor gamete increases risk (whether egg or sperm) and two moreso.

Re : surrogacy and preeclampsia

The reason the intended parents need the help of a surrogate was because the intended mother got severe preeclampsia at 20 weeks with two pregnancies and she delievered at 24 weeks. <br/> <br/> Prior ...
