Re: Possible Pre-E or PIH

Yes, they know about the pain and headaches, etc.

Possible Pre-E or PIH

My bloods and urine were 'ok' as the OB put it. They took my blood pressure 4 times. The first two were with a m...

Re: New member with some Questions

So thought I better drop in for an update. Went and saw my GP, who has diagnosed me with 'clinical influenza'. He said tests weren't required (as in blood work or urine) because it was very obviously the flu. My BP was 139/79 which he believed was an improvement and the important thing is that it wa...

Re: New member with some Questions

Don't feel bad for fuelling my worry, I am actually terrified because in my mind there is nothing else it could be considering my history and the way I 'feel'. Makes me feel even worse for those that have no symptoms at all! I'm go...

Re: New member with some Questions

Thanks for your reply :) It's late at night here so unfortunately the surgery is now shut. I am contemplating going to my delivering hospital first thing in the morning, especially if I am still not well. I've had heartburn too which I've read can be associated with PE too, which I had no idea about...

New member with some Questions

Hi everyone, I'm Nicole, 22 from Australia. I was induced for mild PE in 2011 at 40+2 and delivered a healthy 8 pound baby boy. Everything happened so quickly, I gave birth naturally only 8 hours after diagnosis. I am almost 25 weeks pregnant with my second and have been feeling extremely unwell. I ...
