Re : How much is too much fluctuation?

Are you using a bp machine, or taking it yourself? Is it any different when you are at the doctor and they take it themselves? When I used a bp monitor, it seemed to always be a little off.
I would call if the bottom number were over 100 taking it manually...

Re : Scientists find cause of preeclampsia

I was on hospital bedrest for a week the first time. <br/> I think it is important to keep the baby in for as long as possible, and I t...

Re : anyone with no underlying disorders?

Yup, I had no underlying disorders. I now have Graves disease, but I am sure I didn't have it before because I was tested between babies. My MFM said I had chronic placental iscemic diease or something... but it was kinda an after thing...

Re : Having 3rd with having pre-e

Re : 22 week scan and uterine artery dopplers

They never gave me any percentages after the inital appointment, when they told me about 20% I think. Evie was small on growth, but they never said that indicated that I was more likely to get pre-e. I did get it, but later than the first time, so that was good.

Good luck!
