Re: Labor: What to expect?

My doc actually said if my BP behaves, they might not give me mag at all! I'm obviously hoping that is the case but its nice to be prepared just in case. I would imagine that they would probably cath if I was on mag because they seem to be pretty cath happy at that hospital. We'll see though. Thanks...

Labor: What to expect?

Hi Ladies, Well it looks like my preE is developing slowly enough that I'll be able to delivery at 37 weeks instead of going earlier. They're planning to induce and obviously keep an eye on my pressures. My doctor let me know if the pressures get out of control they may have to add in some medicatio...

Re: Epigastric Pain?

Hi Ladies, Just as an update I had my most recent tests and they showed a little bit of improvement. My liver enzymes look good so whatever I experienced didn't seem to be liver related (thank goodness). Looks like we'll be able to make it to 37 weeks after all! Thanks for all the support! Jennie

Re: Pre-e Labs...How often did your doctor?

I've had pretty slow moving preE and I did my first 24 urine at 19 weeks and again at 22 weeks, 24 weeks and 26 weeks. They didn't do the blood panel until 24 weeks. At 26 weeks my protein dropped quite a bit so they didn't re-do my 24 urine until 34 weeks and found it had jumped up to 414. I've bee...

Re: Epigastric Pain?

I did see my high risk doctor today and he's repeating my blood and urine labs tomorrow so hopefully that'll give us an idea if something is going on. Wish me luck!

Re: Epigastric Pain?

Well now I don't know what to think! It started to get a little worse (about a 4 or 5) and then suddenly went away completely. Maybe it was nothing?

Re: Epigastric Pain?

Funny you bring that up! I was just doing that :). The thing is, this experience is different for me than most mamas. My preE has been developing since week 26 (I'm 35 weeks tomorrow) so its really slow moving. I'm thinking that I "might" be okay to wait until tomorrow but I'm going to get my bags r...

Epigastric Pain?

Hi All, Just wondering your opinion on what I may or may not be feeling. I was finally (after a long and annoying trip) diagnosed with preE this last week and hospitalized for a few days. However, since its relatively slow moving they decided to let me go home and care for myself on strict bed rest....

Re: Flu symptoms related?

Hi Laura, I don't know the answer to your question about the symptoms being hand in hand with PE but I too have been having lots of troubles being congested (actually congested) and having difficulty breathing at night. Normally its safe to take sudafed for a cold but my doctor nixed it since it can...

Re: Bed Rest Side Effect?

Hi All, Just an update, I went to the doctor today and its pretty interesting that I've got a number of side effects going on but the labs just aren't showing what I'm feeling other than having high BP. This next week I'm going to re-do my 24 hour catch and blood tests so hopefully that will tell us...
