Re : My legs????

<t>I have had a slight form of restless legs that has gotten worse with pregnancy and my mother has it bad enough that she is on medicine for it (something for me to look forward to....not).<br/> <br/> Before starting to take medicine for it my mom found that standing and doing stuff seems to work. ...

Re : Off of work - modified bedrest

It has been frustrating with the other OB in the practice. I am going to avoid him like the plague when making appointments. It was just nice knowing that I wasn't crazy or a hypochondiac!!!

Off of work - modified bedrest

<t>So I had an appointment yesterday. It had been 4 weeks since my last scheduled appointment (even though I had a couple of emergency appointments in between). I am 23+6 weeks.<br/> <br/> I had been feeling slightly put off by one of the OBs in the practice whenever I brought up my concerns (blood ...

Re : BP odd reaction to meds....confused

<t>I am wondering if work is part of the problem. I know stress is not a problem for pre-e but I don't know if it is for chronics that are expecting. The fact that it was fine over the weekend makes me wonder. I would welcome being taken off of work at this point. I have missed so much work here and...

BP odd reaction to meds....confused

<t>I am chronic.<br/> <br/> So I started on an increased dose of Procardia (90mg) last Tuesday. I was also given labetol(100mg) to be started if my pressures don't go below 140/90 within 3 to 4 days. I started on the labetol on Saturday (Procardia brought it down a little but not enough).<br/> <br/>...

Re : Size of BP cuff changes results?

<t>I have found that my readings were actually lower at the doctor's when they were using the small cuff and not in line with my readings at home. When they started using the larger cuff, it was more in line with what I was getting. The nurse indicated that they should have been using the larger cuf...

Re : Reaction to BP meds....anyone else?

<t>The OB has called something in for me (can't remember what they said....DH will pick up on the way home). They also want me to increase my fluid intake. They also mentioned watching for fever and diarrhea as they are aware of a bug going around. Wish it was that because then it would go away but ...
