Sounds like you and your doc are keeping on top of symptoms. Please call your OB or head into L&D if you get that PE headache or the bp stays high. Best of luck to you!

I hope things stay positive and that you and your doc are able to stay working so good together to keep you and the baby healthy. Good luck, and stay vigilant!

It sounds like you have a good OB. Make sure that you call in with anything - sometimes it is so easy to wait and see and not want to bug our OB's - but that is what they are there for. Good luck to you - keep us updated.

Sounds like you are staying on top of things. I believe Aldomet max is 2000 mg.

I had my dr's appointment yesterday. My bp was still a little high, 144/92 while on 250mg of Aldomet 3x's a day. So he increased the Aldomet to 500mg 2 x's a day. He figured it would be hard for me to remember to take it a 4th time and he is right. I always have to set a reminder for me to take that middle one. He said that the Aldomet that I am on now is a low dose so he can keep increasing it. But he didn't tell me what the max dose of Aldomet is. Does anyone know? Just curious. He was concerned about the swelling, but the scale only showed 3.5lbs gained in the last month, so he said that was normal gain. I am 23 1/2 weeks now. He was concerned about the headaches, but since they resolve with rest and tylenol, it's just something to keep an eye on. He was like you know what type of headache to call about. I was like oh yeah, I remember the preeclamspia headache. He was like call if your BP stays at 95 for the bottom number and call if you have sympptoms that are constant and don't go away. He agreed to rerun my labs, and he wanted a spot urinalysis too, not a 24 hour one. But he wants it done in 3 weeks. He schedule my next appointment for 4 weeks. He was like call if you need to be seen earlier and we will get you in. So why the symptoms are seeming to start, it's just something to keep an eye on.
