Glad you went in Korie. I am hoping that something is going to be able to be done and something is going to work for you to keep that bp somewhat manageable. Let us know how tomorrow goes

I am 9 and a half weeks. So I am VERY early still. It took us a long time to get pregnant and now with all of this I am just so frustrated! I really appreciate all of the advise I have gotten from this web site! It has been a life saver!

Korie -

How far along are you? I hope that you are feeling better now. Those are some pretty serious numbers so I don't blame you for wanting to see a specialist. The best thing for you is probably staying home off your feet. Good Luck!

Well I called my doctor and she finally said i should go in, after my BP had been that high for a week. They gave me an IV and got it down some, but only to about 149/98. They doubled my Lebatalol to 400mg 2x a day. I have another appt tomorow and I am going to ask her to refer me to a specialist I found on this web site. I am just really scared that they are not going to keep it down and that i am not going to be able to carry this baby long enough to deliver. It is so frustrating because there seems to be nothing for me to do[:(!]!!!!
So i am skipping work today and sitting at home pouting and feeling sorry for myself.

I am jumping in to say that I would also call the ob. The numbers may have come down but they still seem pretty high.....has it been running this high?

Keep us posted if you called and what advice/orders were given to you. Take care

I'm w/the other ladies..I'd definetly put a call into the ob to find out if they want you to come in.

Please keep us posted.

The reading that you are getting still does not seem okay - I would call in.
