Re: OMG! It's Twins!

To my knowledge, she did nothing differently. She is overall a very healthy person, but I doubt there was anything special that kept her from getting PE. As much as we all want a magic something to be able to eat or do or not do to keep us PE-free, there is nothing proven! Frustrating, I know. Hope ...

Re: Advice requested

I agree, a visit with the high risk OB might help you sort out your fears. Either way, your doctors sound like they have given you good care and you are now aware of all the signs and symptoms of PE. The more you know, the more vigilant you will be in another pregnancy. The best thing you can do is ...

Re: VERY high blood pressure while (except while on side)

I would also get checked as soon as possible. Knowing that you and baby are measuring a little small and with your BPs being that high.. I would get checked. make sure you tell them how you feel when you get up, too.

please keep us posted as you can!

Re: Well that was weird

Interesting! Have you been sick at all? Anything different from your normal routine? I, personally, would not know what to think of that either.

Here's hoping it was just an insignificant bump in the smoother road :)

Re: Dealing with it all

Welcome to the boards :) Sorry you had to find us, but glad you did. I think you will find great support here. I did have the same feelings you did about the section. We were largely unaware of any BP issues until my induction, so I associated everything going wrong with my induction-turned-emergenc...

Re: OMG! It's Twins!

Congratulations!! Such a double blessing! I had my twins first and then a PE-free 2nd pregnancy. I do have a friend who had PE in her first pregnancy (singleton) and then a PE-free pregnancy with her twins - so it is possible. Mine are mono-di, so we were high risk and I was thankful to have such go...
