1) Does the blood pressure HAVE to be done twice, six hours apart, to be valid? Should we insist?
2) Aspirin - good/bad? Some Spanish study seems to recommend taking it at night
3) What else can we do? I am studying up on how we can cut salt out of our diet
4) Have not ready anywhere here about Doppler Fluxmetry as a diagnostic tool for PE - thoughts?



1) It can go up and down. My wife always went up as the day went on and would come back down closer to normal as she slept. Her worst readings would be around dinner time.
2) Aspirin never made a difference in our cases.
3) If you really have PIH or Pre-E, I don't think salt would make a big enough difference to keep you from having it.
4) They always checked flow but I never heard about it being part of the diag.

Wahoo, Mark! Many congratulations to you and your wife! "Baby and mother are doing fine" is about the best news we can hear around here, and to add that there were no complications from PE is the icing on the cake.

Way to go, Dad!

Bought the semi-automatic blood pressure device and it works like a charm. Blood pressure still lookin' good!
