Re : Pitting Edema...can someone explain it to me?

<t>Thanks for your response. I definitely hope its not the beginning of PE right now too. I will keep an eye on it today and see what it does. I've been able to rest a little today, so it's not too bad, and still only in my ankles and calves. I'll try pressing on it later and see if it pitts. <br/> ...

Re : Quick question about swelling this morning- Update

Thanks. I called my OB's office and they're closed today (I guess it's her day at the hospital). So I got an appointment at my GP's office in a couple hours. She can check my bp and tell me if it's serious enough to go to L&D. I'll let you know how it goes.

Re : How does stress affect Preeclampsia?

<t>Thanks...it would be possible for me to take leave as early as Christmas. I have enough sick leave saved up that I could use that (full pay) until I could start maternity leave at 35 weeks. I really don't want to do that because I'll go crazy at home worrying that something will happen, especiall...
