I just found this page and so happy I did. A little about my history. My first pregnancy I had high blood pressure through out and horrible military health care. Needless to say when my daughter was born my blood pressure was nearing the 200's over 150's. I was on mag for 3 days after she was born via C-Section. In addition at about 22 weeks I started having hypokalemia (low potassium) issues where I was in the hospital off and on till I had her. The lowest was 2.2. Well 6 years later I became pregnant with my second daughter and due in Oct. At 22 weeks I managed to gain 17 pounds in 3 weeks, my B/P was in the 130's over high 80's, my protein was 206. So not PE, but the doc was thinking it might end up that way and to prevent it she put me on MBR. At 26 weeks, I found out that I had multi kidney stones, at 28 weeks my potassium was down to 2.8. At 30 weeks my potassium was down to 2.6, while in the hospital my B/P was back to the high 130's over high 80's. After leaving the hospital I slept for 3 days, had high B/P, my legs are swollen and pitting, but not hands, feet, or face. I have had a dull headache for two days, and now that I am 31 and 5 my blood pressure is hypotensive. In addition my stomach has dropped and shrunk.... Has any one else had this? Should I be concerend. Anyone else with kidney problems? Lost, and tired of going to the doc and being told everything is normal and just go home.
