Re : Where's everyone from??

Count another one in for the DC area. I'm in Oakton, VA, which means that I live about 20 minutes from Melissa! What a hoot!

Happy Doctor = Happy Mom

<t>Had a great trip to the doc this morning. Seems that the BP meds, combined with bedrest, are really starting to do the job. My BP at the doc's office was almost down to my normal range, so my doc said that we could back off of the medication, taking 250mg of Aldomet four times a day instead of 50...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>Went in for another BPP today. The good news is that the baby looks wonderful! She got an 8/8. However, I was completely unimpressed with the peri that looked over my results. The nurse took my blood pressure while lying completely upright on my left hand side, and told me that the reading was 11...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>Just an update on what's going on with me. I just got back from an office visit. They did an NST while I was there, and my doc says that the baby still looks great. Tomorrow I have another BPP, and they're going to redraw my bloodwork again. Then back the doctor's office on Friday. My BPs on the ...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>Thanks for the encouragement. I'm trying to keep a good attitude about the whole thing, but the one question that I want an answer to is the one, of course, that no one can answer, and that is what is going to happen? It seems that everytime my husband and I go to the doc's office, they throw us ...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>I went in for my office visit today, and took in my log of recent BPs. My BP at the doc's office was 142/80, so that was pretty good, but she wasn't all that happy with the overall trend that she saw with my pressures, and decided to double my dosage of Aldomet to 2000mg/day. The results of my 24...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>Good advice, as always. I guess I need to start being a little more inquisitive with my doctors and nurses. I'm going back to the doctor's tomorrow, so I'll see what they say then. The Aldomet and bedrest regimine that I've been on seems to be holding my BP's down in the 130/85 range, so that's m...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>Jenn,<br/> Thanks for the info. I'm pretty new to all of this stuff. That was the only number that my doc mentioned, so I didn't know if it was somehow significant or not. The L&D nurse mentioned that some of my labs were "borderline," but wouldn't really go into any details. This stuff can b...

Re : Question about induction vs. c-section

<t>Thanks for all the info. I'm assuming that my doc will attempt to induce unless there's some reason that a c-section is indicated. I've heard that Magnesium Sulfate is not pleasant at all, so I'm hoping to avoid that.<br/> <br/> Another question: Are moms with PE generally kept longer in the hosp...

Re : A Little Freaked Out -- Is this Pre-Eclampsia?

<t>Tanya,<br/> Yes, I've already had one shot of the steroids while I was in the hospital, and I'll have another one tomorrow when I go back go L&D for another NST. Thanks for the info on BPs. I'll look it over.<br/> <br/> Mada,<br/> I don't have the results from the 24 hour urine yet. Hopefully...
