Re: Pregnant again after HELLP.. plus My Story

I am 34 weeks now. I still see spots. But my doctor is watching me very closely. She brings me in for weekly NSTs. She just took a whole lot of labs, blood work. I get an ultrasound Monday. My bp was 112/82. She doesn't like the bottom number. I should get the results from the blood work tomorrow. I...

Re: had the baby

I took bp meds for 12 weeks post partum. My bp was fine though after PP PE showed. It went up to 190/130 and never went up again. Once they got the fluid off of me, I felt great. I lost 30lbs in one weekend, in thehospital.

Re: Opinions Please- Creeping Blood Pressure!

Mine was close to 140/90 around week 27 or so. My doctor put me on a low dose of labetalol and it has brought it down. It went to 100/60. But now its averaging 120/70 at home and close to 140/90 again at the doctor office. I can't help but wonder if I wasn't on the meds, how high would it be? I have...

Re: Only systolic elevated?

Google white coat syndrome. I have it bad. My bp is usually good at the house but when I go to the dr it is usually a little elevated. Last time it was 142/92. It went down to 142/78 before I left. If it wouldn't have gone down, I was to go to the hospital. But doctor did say she thought it was nerv...

Re: see spots @ 25 wks

I'm glad she is proactive about it as well. With my son I only had spots and swelling and the dr never for a thing. In fact he told me my 30lbs of fluid was normal. And his nurse laughed at me wheb I didn't lose weight after delivery. I was not diagnosed until a week post partum. I know you all unde...
