eyesight after preeclampsia - is it perm damage???

<t>My sis who had her baby last week just got home from the hospital a couple of days ago. Her blood pressure varies from 13o's to 150's now. Her eyes were really bad just before she delivered her baby. Now her vision is still blurry. She told me it's like looking at a light bulb close up for a few ...

Re : PLEASE READ - Really Worried

<t>Thank u for all the reassurance. <br/> <br/> Holly - the baby is doing pretty good. The doc told her that the steroid shots didn't work for her baby. He is on cpap right now (i think by the her description). He is on 35-40% oxygen. Other than that i think it he is fine. It's kind of hard b/c my s...

Re : PLEASE READ - Really Worried

<t>Thank you so much Caryn. I'm going out of my mind and keep thinking the worse. I live in Ohio and she lives all the way in Colorado. I feel so helpless not being able to be there for her. When I spoke to her on the phone I got so nervous when she told me everything still going on w/ her since my ...

Re : My sister is deliverying today

<t>Caryn - thanks for your response. I just posted another topic b/c i'm so worried about her. <br/> <br/> I think her bp did go down b/c it was 130's/?. But she is not peeing and she is very swollen and her platlets are low (I have no idea what this means). Oh and her vision is still a little blurr...

PLEASE READ - Really Worried

<t>I'm talking to my sis who just had her baby. When i had preeclampsia w/ both my girls my bp went back to normal and I was 100% fine. But I don't think my preeclampsia has ever gotten as bad as hers did. Her bp was over 200, her vision got blurry, and she had a headache and was very disoriented. T...

Re : My sister is deliverying today

<t>Thank u so much for your responses.<br/> <br/> She had him by c-section at 3 lbs. 3 ounces. I talked to my bil for a min and he said he wasn't breathing at first and than he started. I guess he's on the vent now. I wanted to ask more about the time he wasn't breathing and how high the vent settin...

My sister is deliverying today

<t>Her bp shot up really high this morning. She is 32 wks exactly. I've been through this twice and my daughters are perfectly healthy now. But I'm so nervous for my sis. I can't be with her b/c she lives in another state and I just spoke w/ her husband and he said that she is kind of flipping out b...

My sis has pe :((((

<t>This is my biggest nightmare. After experiencing severe pe in both my pregnancies I would always be on edge when one of my sister's was pregnant. My older sis has had 3 pregnancies pe free. Now my younger sis is 31 wks. 5 days preggo and just found out she has pe too. I am a little upset that her...

Re : Sleep apnea and PE

<t>I truly believe there is a connection between sleep apnea and pe and iugr. My first daughter was born at 34 weeks and only 2 lbs. 15 ounces. My bp was ALWAYS normal at the ob office until the day I delivered. My second daughter was born at 30 weeks and only weighed 1 lb. 10 ounces. I would check ...

Re : I'm so sad....

<t>I'm so sorry you have to go through all of this. My daughter was severe IUGR and had a lot of setbacks at the beginning also. She had so many episodes w/ her oxygen saturation just dropping for no reason. They would check her lungs and everything would look okay, just like Ethan, but they would h...
